Carrie Bradshaw, television’s ultimate style icon, nailed it when she famously revealed: “The fact is, sometimes it's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.”
Or how about the memorable episode where she dramatically decaled: “I've spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!”
While that kind of spending might be a tad extreme for most, we will admit to occasionally treating ourselves to a sparkling new pair of soles.
This season the shelves in the UAE malls are bursting with brand new shoes to suit all styles and budgets, from snakeskin stilettos to swingy, fringed mules.
