Manolo says, yesterday, the Manolo reported on the new study which revealed that which was already known, that the shoes say much about the wearers.
At the end of the article, the Manolo challenged his internet friends to say what sort of person would be suitable to each of the three very different shoes. Because the Manolo’s internet friends are the smart and witty bunch, there were many good answers left in the comments section.
But now, allow the Manolo to tell you exactly what sort of person wears this…
The E20274 Platform Sandal from Giuseppe Zanotti.
Your name is Madison, but you go by Bambi. You are five feet ten inches tall, blonde, and have the surgically enhanced 38DDD bosom, and you are from Crawfordsville, IN, although you like to hide this last fact.
At the moment, you are “dating” the son of the oil sheikh named Samir who has the degree in finance from Arizona State University. You say “dating” because, while it is fun flying in the private jet with the zebra-leather interior to Monaco and Dubai and Singapore, you know that this relationship is not really going anywhere, indeed you suspect that Sam already has the first wife, if not the second wife, back home in Kuwait. But you keep these suspicions to yourself, because, well, because the last time you were in the Abu Dhabi, at the Mall of the Emirates, you went shoe shopping with Samir’s Black Card, and these Zanotti platform sandals were part of haul you brought back to the royal suite.
But maybe, sometimes, you think, it might not be worth it.
Sometimes, in those few minutes when Samir has stepped away from the VIP lounge, and you’re waiting for the waiter to deliver the next bottle of Dom Perignon, you wonder what comes next, and if you could ever really go home.
