  • Description

    FOREIGN BUYERS FLOCKED TO THE 25TH SHOE FAIR AT VIGEVANO, ITALY, SEPT 19-20. LAST YEAR'S SHOW BROUGHT FOREIGN ORDERS TOTALLING MORE THAN GBP40 MILLION. SHOES ARE ITALY'S THIRD LARGEST EXPORT COMMODITY.

    THE SHOES ON DISPLAY RANGE FROM THE FANTASTIC TO THE PRACTICAL, THE EXCLUSIVE TO THE ECONOMICAL, THE RICH TO THE POOR. AMONG THE MANY NOVELTIES SHOWN ARE LADIES SHOES MADE ENTIRELY - UPPER AND SOLE - FROM ROCK PYTHON SKIN. THE MEN'S DISPLAY FEATURES SHOES MADE FROM "DINOSAUR" SKIN. THESE NO DOUBT WOULD BE A LITTLE EXCLUSIVE.

    A MANUFACTURER OF BABY SHOES HAS PRODUCED A BOOT OF VERY SOFT LEATHER WITH A NOVELTY IN THE SOLE. A PLEASANT SOUND EMITS WHEN THE WEARER'S FOOT TOUCHES THE GROUND. IT IS CLAIMED THAT THIS WILL ENCOURAGE 'BABY' TO TAKE HIS FIRST STEPS, AND WILL ALSO ENABLE 'MOTHER' TO KNOW WHEN HER OFFSPRING IS WANDERING AWAY."
