By now you’ve seen our post about the new Pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio and our recommendations for his Papal footwear. But for a moment, let’s just imagine that the Catholic Church displayed some unique open-mindedness, and the new Pope is a woman!
Now we can really look at shoes, y’all!!
Chances are, she wants a little height. I mean, those flowing robes can swallow up a petite girl. Perhaps she might rock some Valentino stilettos, with very Papal gold studded heels.
We all know that Popes prefer Prada, so these high platform sandals with a cut out wedge could work well for summer, provided there is a pedicurist at the Vatican.
Snakeskin Loubies are a status symbol and our Pope-ess might love the elegance of this sky-high heeled, peep toe pumps with a hidden platform. Christian Loubitan’s signature red soles are said to be good for a women’s soul, so we say “hallelujah” for this choice!
Brian Atwood’s strappy zip front sandal could be a great way for the Popette to feel feminine and dare we say it, sexy. It’s the equivalent of wearing silk and lace lingerie under a conservative business suit… it’s a guilty pleasure only she knows about. Those vestments are pretty long, and hey, your secret is safe with us, girlfriend.
Sometimes a girl needs comfort, and these Tory Burch ballerinas are iconic these days. The gold logo on the front kind of resembles a cross, doesn’t it?
These shoe choices may not be needed now (although nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors) but it’s fun to dream. We are looking forward to the day that pink smoke blows from the Vatican chimneys, symbolizing the election of the first female Pope.
