There is a quiet confidence that comes from brandishing top-of-the-line footwear. One can never underestimate the effect on one’s gait when wearing an imposing Gucci stiletto, or one’s posture when flaunting a patent leather Lanvin pump.
It’s no coincidence that most high-powered women seem to be wearing the best shoes. It’s not that they are in positions to afford it. It’s that they have the self-esteem to believe they deserve it. Power begets power. Confidence begets confidence. Believe that you have earned the right to wear the best, and others will believe it too.
