Fashion people are well known for being sadistic when it comes to footwear, especially during fashion month. At times, it seems like they’ll go to any lengths—or heights, rather—to impress. And hey, that’s all between the person and her foot. But speaking as somebody who has a hard time breaking in leather sneakers, I can’t imagine the pain brought on by a pair of heels.
In her latest "Pardon My French" episode, Garance Doré challenges herself to spend a full day in a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes. She starts off by attending some early-morning Paris Fashion Week shows—and by mid-afternoon, the pain has set in. But she is resilient! Watch as she goes from venue to venue and picks up tips from some of the fashion world’s most beloved personalities, like Anna Dello Russo, Caroline Issa and Harley Viera-Newton. Stay strong, Garance.
