A woman has gone to extremes to add to her shoe collection, allegedly stealing them from homes and using a stolen credit card to buy more.

The 31-year-old will face court on Saturday on a range of offences.

She’s accused of breaking into a unit complex in Chippendale, in Sydney’s inner city, in the early hours of March 31 and taking off with mail and shoes.

Police say she took items from a number of mailboxes at the residential unit complex on Goold Street, before entering one of the units and leaving with an electronic reading book, a wallet and shoes.

It will be further alleged the woman used a credit card not belonging to her at a nearby convenience store, before attending a running shoe store on Victoria Road, Chippendale, where she purchased two pairs of shoes using the same card.

Police tracked the women down to a second-hand store on Darling Street in Rozelle on Friday.

She has been charged with eight offences.
