The Spanish Say….

Another Spanish “shoe-centric” expression with a visual interpretation by our wonderful illustrator Sasha Naumov.


“Saber alguien dónde le aprieta el zapato” means literally: “to know where somebody’s shoe pinches”. That means to know the real cause of someone’s trouble or worry. We might try to cover it up, but the painful truth always comes out.
