It's all about the shoes.
As Benedict XVI spends his final hours as pope, Mexican media are focused on the pontiff's footwear.
The Vatican said this week that Benedict would abandon his signature ruby red shoes in retirement and wear a comfortable brown pair he was given in the city of Leon when he visited Mexico last year. Leon is a renowned shoemaking center.
Today's headlines in Mexico include: "Benedict XVI will keep using Mexican shoes," and "Benedict XVI loves his shoes from Mexican craftsmen."
