High heel obsession

One of the things I was surprised to see in Skopje (the capital of the Republic of Macedonia) was an obsession with high heels. Almost every woman was wearing them. I have a strong feeling that those few maladjusted ladies without high heels must have been tourists.

There is even a metal statue set up in the city centre representing the beauty of local women. At least I saw it like that. If someone has a better explanation, please do let me know.

Despite the time of year (middle of winter) and quite low temperatures the majority of women were also wearing very short skirts or at least some kind of tights and had obviously spent quite some time in front of a mirror.

The male part of our expedition didn't mind the situation. Even our female companions were impressed by what they saw. In fact M. was so thrilled with the whole thing that just had to buy a pair of fancy high heel shoes herself.
I must say I didn't have anything against it. It was not a very cheap thing but definitely a good choice anyway.

Interesting (and presumably fairly modern) statue. Hope you're enjoying the trip.

I think I'm experiencing shoe lust. I want those shoes.

Thanks for getting back to me man. I keep all my links on a link page so I guess we will have to postpone our agreement till a later date possibly.

Thanks for getting back to me anyway.

There are really lots of similar statues all over the city centre. Some of them must have felt quite threatened by our presence. ;)

No problem. Welcome back any time.
