Your remarks, as those of Ann T. Cate are extremely helpful and valuable.
I'm just now copying them and sending out to the whole design team

I bet while cruising the West Med. Lady would have from time to time the opportuninty to wear high heeled sandals or shoes for nice dinner ashore. Not only in Cannes or Portofino

Is St. Barth or Martinique so different? I'm not so sure...

Re: Comfort issues - shoe storage.

My guess is that anywhere there is a strong European influence, dress will be more formal. Part of that is climate, part cultural attitudes.

Exactly yes. Even smart casual thing will be often associated with higher heels for women. Not stilettos, by also not flat shoes

And although I parted with more shoes than I kept, I made hard choices to get down to the rather ridiculous 40-ish pair I still have. I think what you'll have in type and quantity depends on whether this is your full time forever home and all shoes come with, or this is vacation cruising, where I'd think a half-dozen pair are a lot.

I have one of those linear hanging organizers full plus have shoes sort of stacked in storage cubbies behind the dinette. Most important thing is good ventilation so they don't get mildew!

OK, fair point, full time living aboard is different from our situation so maybe I spoke (typed) too soon.

But I'm still not wearing any high heels!

That sounds like a perfect arrangement. She can keep her shoes to port, and you can keep the spare parts on the starboard side. And save even More space by using your shoes to cushion the more delicate spares...

Re: Comfort issues - shoe storage.

In fact my Dearest is much better organized person than me, and it's me who is crowding the boat with useless items, I must admit

She's letting you design a 75' yacht.

I'd give her a LOT of leeway on shoe storage.
