Yes, make all the jokes you want about shoe and fashion addicts...Then, the inevitable lack of surprise about drugs in the fashion industry... I must say that this story in the NY Post was amusing:
A smuggling ring out of Columbia and Spain were caught trafficking cocaine packages worth about $70 000 each (about $630 000 total) into Spain. They used mules (ha!) to ferry the drug that had been mixed into a paste, then molded into designer stilettos and painted to resemble Manolo Blahnik shoes. Each pair of these knock-offs actually cost about a hundred times the cost of the real thing (that's a reversal...)
Was it a particularly style savvy drug cop that spotted these fakes? Or was some fashionista caught shoving a high heel up her nose? See the full story here.
