I have good and bad news for our readers today.
The bad news is that according to the World Meteorological Organization, the ice in the North Pole is melting at a rapid rate. This news was revealed at a climate change conference which is being held right here in our sunny province of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Some of the famous faces in attendance include Angelina Jolie and Leonardo di Caprio.
According to the UK's Met Office in Hadley Center, the polar ice may melt away completely during the northern summers in a mere 50 years from now.
This is problematic for our dear friends, the Clauses. But the good news is that we'll be seeing a lot more of them, as they will have to move their operation further south.
That is why they turned to ITSDF for some practical advice on suitable shoes to wear on the warmer side and we were happy to oblige.
Mrs. Claus is very much looking forward to flashing a bit more skin and since she always aims to please, we thought this beautiful pair of nubuck pleasers would suit her perfectly. Also, the heels are not too high, so she should get used to it pretty quickly after years of wearing those heavy snow-boots.
She also loved this pair.
At first Mr. Claus was against change. He loves his boots and he's
not so big into change, but when he saw this beautiful pair of shoes, he grabbed them right away and he adores them.
I must say, it makes him look about 40 years younger...
He also decided to get a few new bags to put the gifts in.
The elves also had to be kitted out with some new footwear too and we thought these are ideal. They are fashionable (something those guys needed - if you know what I mean ;-) )
What do you think about our selections? Anything we missed?
