Now that the raincoaster has been suborned, sweet-talked and seduced by the flashy Manolo, there is no way she would be interested in the following.
High heels failed to stop a 24-year-old woman from sprinting the 100 metres in a creditable 14.7 seconds to take first prize and a large shopping voucher in the annual Berlin Stiletto Run on Saturday.
The event, one of the highlights of the Global Fashion Festival, was electronically timed.
The stiletto heels had to be at least 7 centimeters (2.75 inches) high and no more than 1.5 centimeters (0.6 inches) wide at the tip.
Hey, 14.7 seconds for a 100 metres is a pretty good pace – but to do it in stilettos? That is great going.
Denise Hanitzsch, a resident of the German capital, edged out 99 other competitors to take the prize of 10,000 euros.
“I have to run around every day with high heels on, and I’ve always been a good runner,” Hanitzsch told the German tabloid Bild.
Asked about her technique, Hanitzsch said: “Make your strides as big as possible and never let your foot roll back onto the heel.”
Asked how she would spend her prize — a €10,000 ($13,500) gift certificate for Berlin’s upscale KaDeWe department store — Hanitzsch told Bild: “On shoes! What else?”
