Britain's Queen Elizabeth has a 'small footed person' on staff to break in her new shoes and we're a little bit jealous
It's a job so ridiculous, you'd might think it's made up, but there is no job too big or too small within a royal household.
Britain's Queen Elizabeth recently hired a "small footed person" to break in her new shoes for her in order to avoid blisters, cuts or any of the other delights that come from wearing a new pair of shoes.
According to the Evening Standard, the 90-year-old monarch recently hired someone to break in her shoes for her, although it's believed this was a recently vacated position and not one recently created.
Designer Stewart Parvin, who has worked with Queen Elizabeth for 11 years said the staff member breaks in shoes while wearing a pair of beige cotton ankle socks and walk only on carpet while stomping around Buckingham Palace.
"The shoes have to be immediately comfortable … she does get someone to wear them. The Queen can never say ‘I’m uncomfortable, I can’t walk any more," he said.
"She has the right to have someone wear them in."
As do we.
