The Pope Never Owned Prada Loafers
Well, they’re not exactly Prada. We’ve been told that the Pope wears red Prada loaders, but apparently, that’s been a misreport for many, many years.
“We have said for years ever since we watched this Pope be elected in 2005, that he was wearing red Prada shoes. I’m afraid we’ve been wrong.” Said CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
New York’s Monsignor Kevin Irwin clarified by saying “They are red shoes given to him because Constantine gave him the privileges of being an emperor and he allowed him to wear red shoes and a red cape. But frankly the Papal shoemaker is up the block. And it’s not Prada. So the devil may have worn Prada, but not this Pope.”
Funny, I guess. I really wished he could have been wearing Prada loafers this whole time.
