Manolo says, here is another round-toed velvet pump, this one from the Robert Clergerie. It, too, is 65% off of the regular price, a savings of over $230 of the American dollars.
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.
