Manolo Blahnik - Manolo Blahnik: 'Uncomfortable Shoes Are Stupid'
Manolo Blahink thinks it is ''stupid'' that some women are prepared to wear uncomfortable shoes in the name of fashion.
Manolo Blahnik thinks women who like wearing uncomfortable shoes are ''stupid''.
The shoe designer - made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw character on 'Sex and the City' - makes all of his footwear with comfort in mind and doesn't think people should settle for anything less.
He told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: ''The women who say, 'I love to wear them, even if they kill me,' are stupid. Whenever I start to talk about my work, it starts to sound so pompous and pretentious. After all, it's just shoes.''
However, not all shoe designers feel the same as Manolo; Christian Louboutin has previously said comfort is not the ''focus'' of his creations as he wants women to feel ''sexy'' in his footwear.
He said: ''People say I am the king of painful shoes. I don't want to create painful shoes, but it is not my job to create something comfortable. I try to make high heels as comfortable as they can be, but my priority is design, beauty and sexiness. I'm not against them, but comfort is not my focus.''
