The Shoes of the de Havilland

Manolo says, the Guardian they the interview with the super fantastic shoemaker Terry de Havilland. Here is the part of it.

Shoes can change a woman’s life. High heels are empowering. I’ve seen people come into my shops and take off their shoes and put on my shoes and all of a sudden they start strutting their stuff. It changes the way they behave. They put your hips in a different position, push them forward. Men like that.

Manolo says, go look at the Terry de Havilland’s website.

Tres Gros Pieds

Manolo says, here is the article reporting that the feets of the French girls, they are growing.

The average French foot has grown by three centimetres in the past 40 years, and the French now buy more shoes, mostly made in Asia, than any other nation barring the United States, a new survey said.

The average shoe size for a French woman has risen from a 37 to a 40 (a seven in Britain and Australia, and a seven and half in the US), said the survey by the Centre Technique Cuir (Technical Leather Centre).

The French also now buy an average of 5.3 pairs of shoes a year, compared with 4.8 in the rest of Europe. The Americans remain the top buyers, treating themselves to 6.3 pairs of new shoes a year.

Manolo says, yes the Americans they buy many pairs of the shoes. Unfortunately, they have not all read the blog of the Manolo, else they would all know that it is not quantity of the shoes that is important, but the quality.

It is the rule of the Manolo that twenty pairs (Ha! one hundred pairs!) of the shoes from the Walmart does not equal one pair of these.
