And why are some models being used for real hunting?

At a young age, while visiting the Oceanography Museum, the young man saw a sign with a crossed-out heeled shoes on it, informing him that the entrance to the shoes on the studs was forbidden, since it could damage the mosaic floor. Such a spectacle made an indelible impression on the boy.
After that all his notebooks were full of shoe sketches, for which he often received comments from teachers.
Youth of young talent passed behind the scenesThe Parisian music halls. This prompted Christian to create not only beautiful, but at the same time very comfortable shoes. Looking at the dancers, he was thinking about the height of the heel and platform and other shoe elements.
According to the maestro himself, when he creates a newA couple, then, before launching it for sale, he must be sure that a woman will be able to walk through this footwear across Paris and not get tired.
