Footwear choice is an important consideration for travellers. Something comfortable in the temperatures of your destination, robust enough to take a few knocks when manoeuvring through crowds who care little about dragging their luggage over your foot, smart enough to be acceptable in your chic hotel maybe? Everyone has different choices to make, but in Venice, even if you’re a local, you have to consider pathways that have centuries of wear and tear, occasional pools that have spilled over from the canals, steps up and down bridges, the shifting pontoons of vaporetto stops, and more hazards that are uniquely Venetian.
Which makes they choice of such vertiginous heels extraordinary, even it they were being worn on a boat trip at the time of shooting. I can only assume that the wearer didn’t have far to go!
