"The quietest revolution in fashion is Forecast, our new shoe by the incomparable André Perugia. Indeed, so gentle are the changes there is no shout for attention nor shok to the eye... yet what is so peacefully accomplished is the complete new triumph of proportion and grace. We can tell you about the lovely ovalling of the toe, how the heel is balanced to a hairsbreadth, that the fit across the foot is soft and thin as silk ... But as you walk in this shoe and see how tranquilly it steps free of excess and exaggeration, you'll discover for yourself that, short of custom shoemaking, there's nothing in the world like Forecast. In black after beautiful black each lined with a pale, delicious kidskin and made with infinite care in France. $39,95"

And here's the shoe, labelled Perugia Boutique, 2 Rue de la Paix, Paris
