Manolo Blahnik - Manolo Blahnik: 'Uncomfortable Shoes Are Stupid'

Picture:

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.''
