Fancy Footwear

I have a friend from California stopping through Rome in a few weeks and she asked me what sort of footwear the Italians were wearing. I made it very clear that as an American, and especially as a Californian wearing flip flops EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR, blending in here simply wasn't an option. Roman women somehow manage to navigate tourists and cobblestones and insane motorinos all while wearing the highest high heels.

And when they're not wearing stilettos, they seem partial to these eyesores:

I think your euro is better spent on gelato and birkenstocks.
