Standing firm is essential in my career

Carmen Knor has her feet firmly on the ground

‘Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world,’ Bette Midler once said...

My name is Carmen Knor, and in 2011, I was chosen to be Miss Austria. I originally graduated in tourism and marketing from Bad Ischl. Nowadays, I am a self-employed entrepreneur and life coach, and since 2016 I’ve been mother to little Enzo, of whom I’m very, very proud! 

Friends often ask, ‘Why do you love Högl shoes so much?’ My answer is simple: because Högl shoes are the perfect match for my personality!

These black thigh boots with studs on the heels have become a permanent feature in my everyday outfits. I love the way the boots just scream glam rock attitude!  

I like wearing trendy heels to the Opera Ball and the many other elegant events I’m often invited to. When I wear them, I not only feel super feminine, but I also find they give me great support in my day-to-day work. During interviews or presentations, I often need to stand for long periods of time, and comfortable shoes help me stand firm, a quality that I frequently need to demonstrate ;)

‘Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world!’


Every so often, reporters compliment me on my down-to-earth approach. This makes me really happy, as being genuine and open with people is so important to me. But I can only manage this when I feel good in my own skin, and a big part of this means wearing the right outfit, with a pair of shoes to match!

I’m often in the public eye and always find that getting my look right gives me the self-confidence I need to reveal my true self. It all comes back to my motto in life: ‘Mens sana in corpore sano!’, which means ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’.

And another saying, that the actress Bette Midler once came up with, guides me through life: ‘Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world!’ So my chances of conquering the world should be pretty good, seeing as for every occasion I have the right, comfortable shoes thanks to Högl!

Wishing you all the best,

Carmen Knor (née Stamboli)
