The Pope Emeritus New Shoes And The Mexican Man Who Makes Them,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]
As Pope Benedict XVI left the Vatican and his papacy,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], he slipped out of his trademark red shoes and put on a pair of Mexican leather loafers. The shoes,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], actually three pairs,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], two burgundy and one brown,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], were a gift to the Pope during his trip last year to Mexico.
Armando Martin Dueñas is who made the pope's new favorite footwear. Martin Dueñas hails from the Mexican city of Leon,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], which has a 400-year history of shoe making. His great grandfather started the family tradition. But they've never received so much attention as they have this week. Tuesday the Vatican's spokesman said the pope would forgo wearing red papal shoes and spend his golden years in Mexican shoes.
The red shoes,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], by the way,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], is a tradition that dates back to 1566,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], when St. Pope Pius V,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], a White Dominican, The pope's cap, cape and shoes are the only bits of red left from the pre-1566 days.
Since the former pope moves to his new role as Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], he has to leave the red shoes behind. That's where Martin Dueñas' shoes come in. They are burgundy.
Martin says since the Vatican's announcement, his phone has been ringing off the hook.
When I reached him at his family's factory in Leon,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], he had just hung up with Fox News and had CNN waiting on the other line. Martin Dueñas said he's filled with great satisfaction that the pope enjoys his shoes so much. He said it's quite the honor.
Martin Dueñas' factory only makes about a thousand pairs a month,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], hand crafted from the skin of neo-natal lambs. And despite the fame he is enjoying now,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], a spokesman for the company says there are no plans to speed up production or ever outsource manufacturing from Mexico.
Anyone wanting to purchase a pair of the pontiff-preferred shoes has to call the factory directly. Jose Luis Rocha,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], Martin's longtime friend and business partner says it's too bad the pope couldn't have made his shoe preference public just two weeks later.相关的主题文章:
