Hansa, you're welcome.
I think your Manolos are this style: Textmo; and they are lovely.

Blahnik's shoes have a proportion that you will not in any other shoe.
Not even in Louboutin. You can see that in the second picture of #50 where you have a pair of Blahnik and a pair of Atwood.

Yes he is very different from Louboutin and Atwood. Maybe a bit closer to Jimmy Choo. I read in an interview that he never liked platforms and he will never make any.

That's true. Here's how he puts it in NYT:

''But Mr. Blahnik said he cannot account for the tastes of his customers, especially given the general direction of footwear design. He is particularly appalled by the popularity of platforms.
“I’ve never seen such ugly shoes in my life,” he said. “I thought they were démodé in the 1980s. They are getting absolutely funkier and horrid now. I don’t do shoes for fashion, really. I do what I want to do.”
''

I personally agree with him and that's why I like his shoes so much.
