I'm sure from your vantage point, you have a good handle on what type of footwear women wear around Paris. In New York, I am amazed that ladies dash all around town in high heels that I'm sure I could never walk, let alone run, in with out twisting my ankle. I'm sick of bringing an extra bag with my "nice" shoes so that I can change out of my sneakers when I get to where I'm going. Jo
Dear Jo, dear readers,
I love shoes (but unlike some colleagues, I never chew on them). Here are some ground rules:
1. avoid anything too strappy, too pointy or too high; if your shoes look terrific but you are limping with pain and discomfort, you'll look anything but.
2. choose shoes that are stylish yet comfortable, like my assistant's Dries Van Noten pumps, with their stacked heels made of wood and delicate embroidery.
3. if you are going to be on your feet all day, instead of sneakers, carry with you a pair of super-light, ultra-thin classic ballet flats - my assistant gets hers from French Sole...
Dear Marie and Taocito, I will answer your questions very soon!
If you, dear reader, have a question, don't hesitate to post a comment.
