I always dream to wear this sexy red stiletto. I even bought one not sexy red but sexy black which cost me freaking RM400+ and that pair of stiletto remain sexy in the box untouched and never even get to see the sunlight. Damn!

If you are anything like me, you probably love shoes so much that can never walk pass a shoe store offering a shoe sale. And you might have enough pairs of black boots in your collection to dress an army fashion lovers. I remember bought 2 pair of boots while travelling in Seoul and that pair of boots remain in my shoe cabinet until my last wear it during the DMZ day trip in South Korea.

But seriously , what you really know about shoes? I bet you don't know the real story behind Louboutin red sole trademark. Gosh! Louboutin??? I want one pair of those too!!!!

What do your shoes in your closet say about you???

Let's see 3 FUN FACTS ABOUT SHOES that I bet you never knew!!!! 






#1. It was men and not women, the first people to wear heels.

YOU SAY WHAT???

You read it right baby!!!!!

 In the 10th Century men who rode horses needed their boots to have heels. This is in order for them to say in their stirrups. During that era owning horses was a sign of wealth, so heels became a symbol of aristocracy and high social standing in the community and not gender.




#2. Platform shoes were used by Greek actors to somehow signify class. When Ancient Greeks stages plays , costumes were crucial for audiences who come to identify characters. Tragic actors would wear shoes called 'buskins' or raised platform shoes to shoe their superiority over comic actors who often would wear plain socks.




#3. Sneakers actually got their name because of the rubber sole do not make noise. In the late 1800s, they called the shoes as sneakers because of the rubber sole which allowed them to walk and sneak around without making a sound.
