Personne n'a jamais baissé les yeux sur les souliers rouges de Paul VI ou de Jean Paul II Mais, dès 2005, la presse people a fait des gorges chaudes au sujet des souliers du pape Benoît XVI et les acteurs de la mode se sont émus. Ces souliers se détachent particulièrement sur la blancheur

Nobody has ever lowered one's eyes to red shoes of Pope Paul VI or Pope John Paul II. But, in 2005, the People magazine ridiculed red shoes of Pope Benedict XVI, and the people involved in the fashion events became stirred up. These shoes particularly came into the picture if worn with white Papal clothing, and that issue intrigues more than one observer or TV viewer. Some journalists confirmed that the shoes were made by Prada, and they in fact had been the work of one respectable Milanese boot-maker. However, there has been nothing more traditional than these red shoes, which are called slippers, on the feet of the Roman pontiff. Their use has a long history, having the roots in Antique Rome, and then in Constantinople, at the court of Basileus in the 6. century.
The article reminds us of significance of red color in Papal clothing, from the times of the High Middle Ages. Thereupon, there is a description of practice of wearing red shoes from the beginning of the 2nd millennium. The third part deals with their use in modern times and related changes at the time of Paul VI pontificate, and it ends with the description of the footwear worn by Paul II and Benedict XVI.
