Finally, first shoes specifically design for woman elegance appeared on the stage of history in 1533. Catherine Medici, the dearie daughter of famous Medici family, was about the marry with an extremely ostentatious wedding. Sadly, she was only 14 years old kid. Naturally, she was petite and unnoticeable. The possibility of losing the attention inside the all those glamours on her wedding day made her think.
