Former ABC journalist & web creator Verica Jokic of has taken the unique approach of comparing suburbs in Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne to shoes.

Having moved around a lot Jokic says she always found it a challenge selecting a suburb to live in.

24 suburbs are listed in Brisbane to date & thus far Jokic has not identified a Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo suburb. Sadly, we only reach the heights of designer slippers, Country Road & Bally.

Clearly Jokic has not met any of the women I know & before you ask, yes, they all live in a suburb cluster. The likes of Maryons, Jean Brown, Louis Vuitton, Gary Castles & DJ's designer shoe department don't merely sell great lashings of shoes to out-of-towners!

While she does lament she is not done & still has plenty of research in front of her, this shoe devotee does hope this is not yet another example of our southern counterparts portraying Brisbane as Hicksville.
