Did you know that:
- 43 million Americans seek help for foot problems each year;
- 200,000 people in the UK are treated for footwear-related injuries;
- Christian Louboutin's signature red-soled shoes purposely leave behind an rose-colored imprint;
- Louboutin calls them 'follow me' shoes. (I love them even more now.)
I found these juicy tidbits as well as other fascinating facts in a new, scrumptious coffee table book entitled "Shoes: What Every Woman Should Know" by Stephanie Pedersen. I laughed when I saw that "Shoes" is described as a self-help book on the back cover. Not sure what to make of that one but every shoe aficionado should buy this book anyway.
