Manolo says, the Manolo he has been meaning for the while to mention the Yoox to you. They are worth the mentioning because they offer for the American the hard-to-find shoes of some of the most important designers of Europe.
The Yoox it is not the best place for the shopper of the bargains, but it is good if you must have the latest in the couture shoe styles of the Europe.
Manolo says, two of Manolo’s many internet friends have sent the Manolo links to two very amusing shoe museums. You must look at them.
The Bata Shoe Museum This place, it is is in the Canada, and was mentioned in the most entertaining article about the caveman shoes in the recent New Yorker magazine.
This museum, it is in the France, in the town of Romans-sur-Isere, which as the Manolo can attest is one of the centers of the shoe manufacturing in the France. (The shoes of the Robert Clergerie they are made there.) This site, it is in the French, but this, it is no barrier to looking at the pictures.
P.S. Many thanks to the Manolo’s internet friends, the La BellaDonna and the Sandra.
