The Pope Wore Prada

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires has been named the 226th Pope of the Catholic Church, taking the name Pope Frances.


As his predecessor, Pope Benedict turns in his red Prada slip-ons and shuts down his Twitter account, “@Pontifex” in preparation for his departure, Cardinal Bergoglio will be finding his way around his new town, and thinking about how to make his mark as the new Pontiff.  Once the smoke clears (pun intended) he will need to make some stylistic choices to get this Popedom started.

In honor of the momentous occasion, we have gathered some of the season’s fiercest red shoes for his perusal.


These skull embossed patent leather Alexander McQueen slippers would lend an edgy vibe to the traditional Cossack look.


Nothing screams Italian like a horse bit loafer, and these Gucci patent ones will have him blending in with the locals in no time.


Fashion duo Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2, have created a classic wingtip in rich red. A manly choice.


Perhaps he will choose the iconic Tod’s driving moc, which is perfect for cruising around town in the Popemobile.


For the modern Pope on the go, these DC skateboard shoes are just the thing, offering both comfort and a sense of urban cool.

We’re sure whatever he chooses will be historic. Best of Luck Francis! Glad we could help.

    You idiots are so boring. Benedict PP. XVI did not wear Prada; he had a separate and individual shoemaker. Asshole.

      There are conflicting reports on the internet. Yes, many credit shoemaker Adriano Stefanelli or Antonio Arellano and recently Mexican cobbler Armando Martin Duenas. The information is varied and unclear. However, this article was written in great fun, and not intended to explore the history of papal shoemaking. Lighten up and enjoy it.
      THank you for posting!

    Right here is the perfect blog for everyone who would like to understand this topic.

    You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not
    that I personally would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that has been written about for many
    years. Excellent stuff, just great!
