With Pisamonas, they’ll start school with their best foot forward!

Back to School with Pisamonas

Get geared up for going back to school!

We know, we know, it’s still August, and if you’re still on holiday at the beach with your little ones maybe it’s not the best time to talk about going back to school. But, as much as it pains us, there are only a few weeks left until your kids start classes again. At Pisamonas we know it’s better to be safe than sorry, so we’ve already got everything ready to kit your kid’s feet out this term.

We’ve got a huge variety of school shoes for all occasions ready and waiting for you, whether they wear a uniform or not. We’ve got Velcro fastenings or lace-ups, for their PE classes, their extracurricular activities, and for the tiniest of feet of all, for your little ones who are off to nursery. What’s more, we’ve also got Condor accessories. All of these products offer the amazing value for money that Pisamonas is known for.

We know that starting to think about school and getting back into a routine can seem like a bit of an uphill struggle, so first things first. We’ve got a few tips to help you send them back to school with a smile.

Advice for dealing with them going back to school

We’re not going to try and deny that holidays aren’t wonderful, but getting back into a routine also has its plus points. On the one hand, think about your kids. Every new term is a new opportunity for them to learn new things. Think how happy it’ll make you when they get home and tell you that they’ve learnt to count, or when they read you their first sentence, or when they tell you how amazing they thought a book was!

There are also new challenges for mums and dads. Just like January, September is the perfect moment for setting yourself new goals. From getting back to the Zumba classes you love so much, stopping smoking or finally doing that Spanish course you’ve always wanted to take, now’s the time!

Another thing that’s sure to stop you from enjoying the kids going back to school is all the costs that September entails. As a mother, you know only too well that this month is essentially a synonym for spending an awful lot. All the school materials, books, lunchbox, clothes, shoes… It all adds up and, by the end of the month, you’ve spent a fortune. That’s why it’s so important to try and find a way to save on everything you buy. At Pisamonas, we want to do our bit, and that’s why we want to remind you that you can take advantage of our Pisacombos deals. How do they work? It’s simple. For every pair of shoes you buy, you get a 10% discount on any of our accessories. Imagine, for example, that you need to buy some Mary Janes for your little girl and boat shoes for your little boy. If you also buy her some ribbed wool tights and him a pair of plain socks, you’ll automatically get 10% off both accessories, it’s that easy!

If none of that makes you feel any better, maybe the best way of facing them going back to school is thinking about your next holiday. Any weekend can be a great opportunity to escape the routine and go and enjoy a mini-holiday with your family. There’s no need to wait a whole year to escape the daily grind!

Essential shoes for going back to school

Now that we’re all smiles, thinking about how great this school year is going to be, it’s time to make a list of the shoes that each one of your kids will need. Make a note of these ideas and kit them out them perfectly!

Shoes for school uniforms Pisamonas 

-          With their uniform

The vast majority of kids wear uniforms to school, so they’re probably going to need a certain type of shoe to go with it. At Pisamonas we’ve got all the classics, as well as loafers for boys and girls, boat shoes in brown or blue, or lace-up bluchers that they can also use casually.

-          For sport

Trainers can’t be left off the back to school list either. Whether you go for classic white or other models in different colours or materials, your kids can’t go without them.

-          Rip tape

If you want them to be as comfortable as possible and quick to get on and off, you can also find rip tape school shoes, Mary Janes or trainers with Velcro fastenings on our online footwear shop.

Pisamonas have all the footwear your kids need. Happy back to school!

The origins of Menorcan Sandals

By Pisamonas 28 June 2017

Menorcan Sandals for Children

The story behind one of the classics of Spanish footwear

Menorquinas, Menorcan sandals, Mallorcan sandals, Ibizan sandals... call them what you will, do you know the story behind this style of sandal? Menorcan sandals have become a fashion classic for everyone, regardless of age or gender. Their comfort, quality and the ease of combining them with a wide range of looks, have meant that season after season they’ve become a real must have for all.

From their name, it is not too hard to imagine where they might come from, but when were they first worn? And do they really have their origins on thisBalearicIsland? Let's find out!

Footwear linked to an Island

As often occurs in such cases, it’s not known exactly when Menorcan sandals were first worn, but there are several clues. Firstly, it appears thatMenorca really is the place of origin of this type of footwear. And in what year would you say they were first worn? In the 1970's, at the beginning of the 20th century, or even in the 19th century? No, everything seems to indicate that it was much earlier when this popular style of footwear first appeared, to be more precise around 200 BC, during the times ofHannibal. Apparently it was the Carthaginian General’s slingers (stone throwers) who, during their time inMenorca, wore this type of footwear in their battles against the Romans.

The durability of the Menorcan sandal seems to have seduced the peasants and farmers of the island, and they gradually adopted them to wear for their day to day work.

The quality and tradition of Menorcan sandals

As you might imagine, the Menorcan sandals of several centuries ago were very different from those you can find today, whether online or in shoe stores. Initially, they were made by hand using just leather and waxed thread. Although the materials and styles have changed over the centuries, what has been conserved is the hand-crafted nature of the Menorcan sandal.

The first thing to change and to give them the appearance they have today was the sole. With the advent of the motor car, in the early twentieth century, the idea of using rubber for the soles was adopted, offering extra comfort and greater protection from dampness.

And from their origins as a practical, comfortable work shoe, during the 1970s and 80s they became a fashion trend in Menorca which later spread to the other Balearic Islands and then gradually to the rest of Spain. For this reason they are also known as Mallorcan or Ibizan sandals. 

 Menorcan Sandals for Kids and Adults

Precisely because they have become such a big fashion trend, it’s possible to buy them in a multitude of places. Not so many years ago, to get hold of a pair of Menorcan sandals you had to actually visit thisBalearicIsland or ask someone to go there for you.

Fortunately, thanks to the Internet, these days wherever you live you can buy Menorcan sandals online. At Pisamonas, as well as on the Internet, you can buy them at any of our shoe stores. If you’re not sure where to buy Menorcan sandals in Bilbao, Madrid, Seville or Valencia, at our shoe stores we’ll be happy to show you the best quality Menorcan sandals at the best prices, as well as a wide range of other styles of footwear.

Different Menorcan sandals styles

Who would have thought all those centuries ago that this style of footwear would take off to such an extent that it would become such a huge fashion trend! As we’ve already said, the first revolution that took place in the Menorcan sandal was the modification of the sole. What’s more, in recent years new designs have been introduced and they are available in wide range of different styles. At Pisamonas you can find the most traditional styles in leather and nubuck, as well as other new designs, such as Menorcan sandals with glitter, mirror-style or in combinations of different colours. The only thing is that with all the designs that now exist, it’s almost impossible to decide which ones you like the most! In the 2nd century BC it must surely have been easier to choose! ;)

What are the benefits of summer camps?

By Pisamonas 20 June 2017

Benefits of summer camps for children

It’s one of the best options both for parents and children during the summer months

School is almost over and our children couldn’t be happier, but parents are faced with the same dilemma every year: Where do we leave them while we are at work? At best, we can take time off or leave them with the grandparents. But if this is not the case, we have to find fun activities that will keep them entertained. One of the most popular options is summer camp, which is not surprising as they offer great advantages for children, not to mention the smile with which the kids return home. Would you like to know what these advantages are?

Benefits of summer camps for children

Taking children to these types of activities is not always an easy task. It’s tough on the parents but also on the kid who doesn’t want to leave his or her environment. What the child must know before going, especially if it’s the first time, is that the camp is a reward and not a punishment. Once this issue has been overcome, and as soon as the child is at the camp, he or she will forget all prejudices.

Now comes the parents’ turn to understand why summer camps are a good option for kids. Firstly, because this environment will help them overcome any shyness they may have, they will improve their communication skills and the way they interact with other children, both their age and others.

Autonomy, tolerance and the ability to share

They will also improve their autonomy, which means they’ll learn that there are certain tasks that they need to do by themselves because no one is going to do them for them. And that’s not all, their tolerance and ability to share will also improve. They’ll realise that at home they can often get what they want, but here there are other children with whom they have to share things and learn to live with.

Teamwork

We mustn’t forget of course that they will get a chance to learn about the importance of teamwork since they’ll be participating in many activities where they will need the help of others to reach the goal.

Outdoors, languages, creativity and much more

Best of all is that they will enjoy a few days outdoors with all that entails; even if they go to an urban summer camp, they will still go on trips and participate in activities outside the 4 walls of their bedroom.

In addition to these advantages, other benefits can be obtained depending on the type of camp attended. If it’s a language camp, for example, they’ll be able to improve their foreign language level. In fact, English summer camps have been among the most popular ones in recent years. A music camp can also help them develop their creativity.

What should we pack for the camp?

To make sure your children enjoy all the activities and make the most out of the days they’re at the camp, it’s vital that you prepare their suitcase with them before leaving. Let’s have a look at what things should always be in their suitcase for the summer camp: sun cream, a rucksack, sunglasses, t-shirts, trousers, caps, a hoodie, a raincoat, swimsuits, socks, underwear and shoes. Let’s take a look in more detail at this last item. What shoes should always be included in the suitcase?

This can vary depending on the camp, but in general, a pair of flip-flops and two pairs of canvas shoes that will endure it all should be included. In this case, we recommend you get the canvas trainers with rubber toe cap for the youngest ones, and if they still can’t tie their shoe laces, opt for models with riptape or with no laces.

Now that you know what the advantages are and know what a well-prepared suitcase looks like, only one thing remains to be done, for your children to enjoy themselves!

How to wear sandals?

How to wear sandals?

Different ways to mix and match summer footwear to perfection

Until June 21 it’s not officially summer time, but it is true that over the last couple weeks we have had a few really summery days. It’s time to get out your cool shoes and your sandals can’t stay put away in the shoe closet any longer. Now is the moment for summer footwear and it will be a main feature of all outfits over the coming months, both for kids and grown ups.

But not all shoes are the same and no matter how much of a favourite they are with you or your kids, it doesn’t mean that they go really well with all your clothes. So here we’d like to offer you some tips when it comes to mixing and matching sandals.

A different style for every different look

Do you have the feeling you're constantly changing your look in the summer? To say nothing of changing your kids when they get wet, sweaty or dirty playing. Off to the beach or pool in the morning , a trip or a walk in the afternoon and out to dinner at a special restaurant in the evening. This is a typical day during the summer holidays! Each type of sandal has its perfect moment and here we’ll talk about which is the most suitable for each occasion.

What’s more we’ll show you how it’s possible to have several styles for each family member without overspending. If you are asking yourself where to buy sandals at excellent prices, the answer is really simple: always at Pisamonas! You can be sure that our brand offers the best quality at the best prices and when it comes to summer footwear, we have a wide range of styles for all ages, from babies, to sandals for girls and boys, and even for mums and dads too.

Beach and pool

Let’s start with the most popular activity in summer time: going for a dip in the sea or the pool. You’ve already got the swimsuits, sun cream and sunglasses ready for the kids and grown ups, and now you have to decide which sandals to wear to the beach.. Without a doubt, flip-flops and jelly sandals are the thing. Especially for kids, jelly sandals are the best choice so that they’ll be really comfy and their feet well protected. In addition, this style has been developing over the years and nowadays there are some really trendy designs that go perfectly with a casual look. In fact, jelly sandals have become a must-have item for the summer season and not just for the beach. 

Sandals for Girls

Casual style

It's time to go for a stroll. We recommend going for flat sandals, both for girls and grown ups. Where kids are concerned, it is important that they fit really well around the ankle, to avoid twisting. This style of footwear looks great with skirts and dresses, as well as with shorts, pedal pushers or dungarees. Our recommendation is to go for floral prints or a sailor-style accompanied by footwear in a single colour. If you choose more colourful styles, like ethnic ones, it's best to choose plain fabrics for the clothes to go with them, to allow the footwear to really stand out.

And for kids, the most comfortable option is T-bar style canvas sandals, which go perfectly with shorts and T-shirts. For example, our new rubber toe-capped, T-bar sandals are perfect to combine with denim shorts and a white T-shirt.

Dressing up

For evening wear we recommend sandals with a wedge both for you and your kids, in a classic style that will never let you down: the Menorcan sandal. What’s more, this is a great choice if you want to achieve a matching family look, as we have styles up to size 45. Perfect to mix and match with shorts or trousers and a linen shirt or blouse. 

Roman Sandals

If you want to add a shiny touch to your outfits, this year we have a new design that you’ll just love: Menorcan glitter sandals for both girls and women. You can also go for metallic textures, which are really fashionable right now and will be the icing on the cake of your look. If you combine them with a short dresses in light colour you’ll look just perfect! And which sandals should you wear with long dresses? The outfit combination we like the most is a long, plain dress with Roman sandals. Unbeatable!

What are the fashion trends for Summer 2017?

If you haven’t had the chance to check out the Spring - Summer trends in this type of footwear yet, here are the Top 3.

In first place fringed sandals are still a real must. They are perfect for achieving a boho=chic style look. At Pisamonas, as well as in camel colour, this year they are available in petrol blue and rose pink.

 Fringed Sandals

Esparto soles are in fashion for all types of footwear, and sandals are no exception, with flat sole or with a low platform for older girls and women.

Finally, and in this case for both boys and girls, Bio sandals in all their variations are a must-have item. Although double buckles are the most popular style, a wide range of perfect girls’ Bio sandal styles is also available. 

Have you got a pair in your shoe closet yet? Which style do you like best and how do you prefer to mix and match them?

How should you clean communion shoes to give them a lovely shine?

By Pisamonas 30 May 2017

 Clean Communion Shoes

Dress your children up in special shoes for a special day

We are at the height of the communion season and one of the issues we have always taken into consideration is what to do with our son’s and daughter's shoes once the big day is over. Years ago it was quite common to buy shoes specifically for the event, but that is something that very few people do these days. Why wear Communion shoes for just one day when you can get so much more use out of them? Especially now that there are a lot of very pretty, practical styles to choose from, as you can see in our Special Occasion Collection 2017.

But of course, after the ceremony and the party the shoes will not be as clean as they were and if you’d like your child to wear them again you want them to be as shiny as new. At this point, you shouldn’t lose your cool and make your child to sit in a corner so as not to dirty their shoes! With the following tips we offer you, cleaning their first communion shoes will be as easy as pie.

Tips prior to cleaning Communion footwear

The first thing you must determine clearly before you start cleaning is what material the shoes are made of. For Communions, the most classic shoes are traditionally made of leather, but other materials have strayed to establish a niche in the market, with the aim of promoting the versatility and practicality that we mentioned earlier. Canvas ballerina shoes and bluchers, or suede loafers are just a few examples.

 It is also essential that you always buy top quality products. When using shoe cleaning products, make sure they are made by brands which specialises in footwear care.

Cleaning leather shoes

Let's start with the most traditional communion shoes: leather ballerina shoes and loafers. First of all, you should wipe away any dirt that there may be on the surface, firstly with dry cloth and then with a lightly dampened one. Once this is done, you should let them dry completely before continuing.

 Cleaning Leather Ballerinas

Cleaning suede shoes

Suede is another of the great classics for communion shoes in children’s loafers or bluchers, especially for boys. This is not the first time we have offered tips on how to clean suede shoes, but let's go over them again briefly. It’s much easier than you might imagine. To keep them always in tip-top condition, simply wipe them with a slightly dampened cloth and then brush them with a shoe brush wrapped in an old pair of tights. Make sure you brush evenly over the entire surface.

Leaving canvas shoes like new

Everyone loves canvas because it’s just so comfortable and cool for the warm weather and it’s also because it’s really easy to keep clean. Communion fashions have also succumbed to its charms and we now offer a wide range of styles of footwear made in this material. It’s just perfect to carry on wearing throughout the Spring - Summer season.

 Cleaning Communion Shoes for Boy

How should they be cleaned? There are two basic options. The first is machine washing them on a cold water programme with a short wash and gentle spin. However, it’s not a good idea to overuse this method, as it gradually wears the shoes out.

The second option, which is more recommendable, is hand cleaning. First of all, you should shake the canvas shoes well, to remove any surface dust and dirt.

Then you should use a soft bristle brush to finish off removing any remains of dirt. Once this is done, you should clean the canvas with a sponge dipped in a mixture of water, neutral soap and a little sodium bicarbonate. You need to rub harder in the areas where there are any marks or stains. Afterwards, you should remove any remains of this mixture with a cloth and stuff the shoes with scrunched up newspaper so that they do not lose their shape, and also to help absorb the dampness. Then let them dry in the shade. It’s as simple as that!

How to clean patent leather shoes

Patent leather is a really safe bet when it comes to footwear for dressing up your children on special occasions. Whilst not being the top choice for those taking their first communion, it certainly is a favourite for the smallest guests. We have included it in our collection because we know that when you take your children to this type of special event you also want them to be able to wear their shoes on other occasions. The most popular style in this material are our patent leather Mary Janes

 Cleaning Patent Leather Shoes

For cleaning patent leather shoes, we also recommend that you take a look at a post of ours regarding this from a few months ago. Anyway, we don’t want to keep you waiting any longer, so let’s run through the steps briefly again. First, remove any dust with a soft cloth and then use another cloth to gently wipe the surface with water and soap. After all the soap has been removed and the shoes have been allowed to dry thoroughly, wipe them again with a soft cloth, applying a special product for cleaning patent leather.

So what do you think our tips for cleaning Communion shoes?

Decorating your children’s rooms? Check out our tips!

By Pisamonas 17 May 2017

Ideas for decorating children's rooms

We’d like to offer you some ideas for decorating children's rooms

 

Whether you are preparing for the arrival of a new member of the family, you are moving home or if you simply want to give a new look to your home, today we would like to offer you some ideas on decorating rooms for little ones.

It is clear that in decoration terms nothing is set on stone and something that is a must for your friend, you would not even consider. For this reason, we would merely like  to offer you some suggestions to bear in mind and which may a good starting point if you’re not sure how to get going.

Up to what age should you decorate children’s rooms?

The first thing that you should keep in mind is that it is your child's room and not yours, as they are sure to remind you on more than one occasion, so don't forget it;) What are we trying to say here? Your kids will spend a great amount time in their rooms so it’s very important that you create a space that they feel is their own and in which they feel really comfortable. When they are no longer babies, they start to know what colours and patterns they like most, and the finishing touches that they want to be included in the decoration of their rooms. In addition to comfort, another reason to take their opinions into account is that if you like their rooms, they will take better care of them and keep them clean and tidy.

As they grow up their personalities develop and they start to know what they want and what has no place in their rooms, until they reach the teenage years, when they won’t care less about your opinions on decoration issues. But until that time, there are many ways of creating beautiful rooms for babies or children, which are to your taste and where they will be comfortable. Let's have a look at what aspects you should bear in mind!

Decoration in babies’ rooms

The two keys to decorating rooms for babies are comfort and stimulation of the senses.

All furniture should be designed initially to ensure the comfort of the little one and the parents too. If there is one item that immediately comes to mind when we think of a baby's room, it is the crib. After the first few months, when they usually sleep in your room, it will be time to move the crib to their own room. The most important thing when choosing the place to put it is that there are no dangerous elements within reach, such as the strings of a blind.

In addition, other furniture such as the changing table or the wardrobe should be laid out in such a way that makes your lives easier and so that everything easily accessible for you

As regards stimulating their senses, particularly during the first 6 months, babies are discovering a whole range of new sensations. So it is very important to stimulate their senses with sounds and colours that can be include in the decoration. Although it seems that all they do is eat, sleep and cry, small details like the moment of waking up can be very stimulating. Therefore, we recommend using bright colours in the room and in all its decorative elements. Small details like carousels with light and sound or a small crib mirror will help stimulate their senses.

Tips for decorating children's rooms

The phrase "less is more" should always be kept in mind when decorating your children's rooms. As we have already mentioned, it is very important that they feel really comfortable and if they do not have enough space because there is too much "junk" in their room, they will want to spend less time in that space. What’s more, you should evaluate other aspects such as the following:

Colours: We recommend always using bright colours but not too overpowering, with pastel colours being ideal. This will create a fun, relaxed atmosphere for your children.

Walls: Thanks to the murals and vinyl that have become so fashionable in recent years, walls can be the distinguishing touch when establishing the decoration of a Children’s Room. Following our initial advice, choose designs that you know your kids are going to like and that suit their personality.

Furniture: It is important to have a piece of furniture for each thing, a wardrobe for the clothes, a shoe cupboard for all their Pisamonas Footwear, a toy box, shelves for books ... the organization is key factor in any room, but more so in your children’s rooms, so that they get used from being small to their things being tidy and to everything having its own place.

Layout: It’s important to lay out the space of your children's bedrooms well. If you do not have a playroom, we recommend creating a space inside their room designed for this. The most important thing is that there is very clear separation of the rest area with the bed, from the leisure area, with all their toys. 

Lighting: in children's rooms, it is essential that there is plenty of natural light to favour relaxation in this space.

In terms of styles of decoration, it is clear that everyone has their preferences, but this season we are going for a nautical style for children’s rooms, just like in the photo. The shades of blue, the colours of the sea and the sky, with finishing touches of rope and wicker are a winning combination.

We hope that these few tips will be of help to you to create rooms for your kids where they can be comfortable and have fun every day.

The most viewed on Instagram Pisamonas. Our top photos with the most likes!

By Pisamonas 26 April 2017

We are celebrating! 20 months and 20,000 followers! Who would have thought it... it’s just a little over a year and a half since we set up our Pisamonas profile on Instagram with all the excitement in the world. Today we want to remember the best moments of those 20 months on the social network of the moment.

Mary Janes for girls: we answer the 15 most frequently asked questions about them!

By Pisamonas 20 April 2017

Mary Janes and Ballet Pumps Pisamonas

Today we bring you a run through of the most frequently asked questions about one of the most famous styles of girls’ shoes. Are you ready? Here we go!

What does the term mean? What are Mary Janes?

They are girls' shoes, similar to ballerina shoes but with a strap that crosses the instep and they have a buckle, velcro or button fastening. One of the most popular types of shoes worn by girls.

Who was Mary Jane?

Its name is due to the unfortunate Queen Mary of the Mercedes of Orleans, popularly known as Mary Jane. She and her cousin Alfonso XII fell in love and were married in 1878, but sadly she fell ill and she died five months later. At the time of her death a popular song as dedicated to the King which spoke of the shoes she wore... and they have kept her name ever since.

What is the difference between Mary Janes and Ballerina shoes?

Ballerina shoes have an open instep, while with Mary Janes it is crossed by a strap or lattice.

Where should I buy Mary Janes online?

The very best online children's shoe store where you can get hold of these popular girls’ shoes is Pisamonas. You will find a wide variety of styles, for babies to women and for girls, with styles for all ages.

Where should I buy Girls’ Mary Janes in Madrid?

Well at Pisamonas too of course! Come to our flagship store in the north ofMadridand you and your daughter can try on your favourite shoes on the spot!

What about in Valencia, Bilbao and Seville?

In 2017 our online children's shoe store has gone a step further and we have arrived in these cities. We have opened new stores so you can have a more personal experience, collect your orders, make enquiries and carry out transactions at the store.

Do you have styles for women too?

Of course! Although this is a very popular type of footwear for girls, lately they have become fashionable with top brands and designers too, and they have produced versions of Mary Janes with heels and for women.

What about for communions?

The communion Mary Janes which are available at our online store are a guaranteed success. They are available in pastel shades, classic white, nude or rosewood pink… In light fabrics, classic leather and the most in trendy material, sparkling with glitter, you will find the style that best matches that beautiful communion dress that you have chosen. Check them out!

What are the differences between summer and winter versions?

The main difference lies in the material used. In summer it is common to wear canvas versions, which are fresh and soft, can be machine washed and will stand up to all your holiday activities. And in winter serratex and suede are more popular to wrap up warm. We have girls’ Mary Janes in leather and in patent leather, as a shoe for more dressed up occasions and for any time of the year.

How to mix and match Mary Janes?

The best combination is with matching tights. At Pisamonas we have more than 30 colours of Cóndor tights to mix and match, which will be a definite hit. They are just perfect with dresses, skirts or trousers. Put the finishing touch your daughter’s look with these shoes and accessories so she will be the envy of the class.

What are T band Mary Janes?

They are the latest fashion! Follow the most up to the minute fashion trend and get a pair of the new T band style Mary Janes. With a strap over the instep and another that fits around the ankle, they are just perfect.

Are they available with reinforced toes?

So your daughter is always on the go, right? If you're tired of scuffed leather on the toes of her shoes from playing in the park because she uses them to brake when riding her bike, we have the answer! Try out our style of Mary Janes with reinforced toe cap, just so practical for the Summer.

Which shoes should I choose for a Christening?

If you have had a baby girl and are getting ready for her Christening, she will look just perfect with our Mary Janes without soles, or rather with very soft soles. Perfect shoes for pre-toddlers, they are just so soft and elegant!

Which are the most frequently used materials?

They are available in patent leather, velvet, canvas, towelling for home wear and leather for more formal occasions. They also come in linen which is ideal for Spring and suede, perfect for the Autumn.

Are they worn outside Spain?

Yes, of course they are! Since Christian Louboutin, Prada and Yves Saint Laurent designed their own Mary Janes and Sarah Jessica Parker sighed over the Manolo Blahnik version in Sex and the City, this type of shoe has become a fashion icon which is recognised around the world.

So have your daughters got theirs yet?
