When Carrie Bradshaw, the main character on HBO’s popular series “Sex and the City”, begged a mugger not to take her Manolos, a love affair was born. The high end shoe maker, who is responsible for the design and prototype of every shoe that bears his name, and his 30 year old company is THE shoe of record for those who want (and can) be fabulous in 3+ inch stilettos (Manolo does make flats and lower heeled mules). The shoes, made of silk, lace, satin and other nice materials, cost upwards of $300. Blahnik is solely responsible for the design and prototype of every shoe that bears his name. Can’t afford the 300+ price tag? Save up to 80% off the retail price of a pair of Manolo’s by shopping at the Saks Fifth Avenue or Neiman Marcus Outlet stores.
