Women sell ‘very used cabin crew shoes’ shoes for up to £60 and tights for £25 online
FLIGHT attendants get to travel the world for free, but the job doesn’t pay that well.
So savvy cabin crew members are making some extra cash on the side by flogging their used shoes and tights to foot fetishists.
Most people would probably pay to avoid going anywhere near a high heel that has walked hundreds of miles along plane cabin aisles.
But there are some people who will shell out decent money to own the sweaty shoes, and the stinkier the better as far as they’re concerned.
Some flight attendants use their own websites to flog everything from tights and shoes to used underwear, like the woman who operates All Things Worn And Beautiful.
Operating under the pseudonym Juice Pusher, she sells used tights for £25 and used pants for £25.
She said: “Early on, I figured that there is a demand for well-worn tights, especially from flight attendants.”
On Ebay, women sell ‘very used cabin crew shoes’ shoes for up to £60.

In a bid to make themselves stand out from the others on the auction site, many of the sellers often boast about how bad their heels smell.
One woman selling a pair of UK size 4.5 heels said: “They may have a little ‘worn’ aroma if sniffed closely.”
Another seller flogging a pair of UK size 5 flats described hers in detail, saying: “Well-worn cabin shoes – just returned from America wearing them on a very long flight.
“They have a distinct odour so let me know if they need an airing. Scuffs on the toes from locking and unlocking trolleys.”
Ebay has cracked down on the sale of bizarre items in recent years, so when selling used tights, many of the descriptions claim that they “will be washed to comply with eBay rules & regulations.”
But all of the used hosiery on offer also proudly includes “holes and snags” in the description.
