dgie THANKS!!! I am going to call them now. But I don't know the model name? Do you have any clue? Did you notice how much they were?

lena Maybe we both should get a pair

maricris Maybe Manolo's are like tattoos. Once you get one, you have to get another and then another!

I didn't look for the model name but I think they were $630. There weren't any others like them, so it shouldn't be too hard to describe them.

Leyla, if it helps, I wear the exact same size in Manolos and Choos. They fit me exactly the same.

dgie, tnx for the info.
i called neimans today and the lady said that a 38 and a 38.5 = a US 8
a 37 and a 37.5 = a US 7.5

i just didnt see how that made sense.

its so confusing.. im between going for an 8 or 8.5. now im considering just the 8

Leyla I haven't had a chance to try Manolo's here b/c we don't have any store that sells them. So I am in the same boat as you are.

Here is a picture. But this is in pink which are so much uglier. I like and want th silver ones
Silver Manolos

630!!!!!!?!?!?!?!??!? Carrie paid $450 for them..uhh! what a rip off!

I hate to rain on the parade here, but what is so special about Manolos and why are they so damned expensive?

I have seen few styles that I might consider investing in. But for the price, I much prefer Jimmy Choos, Via Spiga, Dior, Gucci, even Steve Madden.

they are actually done much better than some other brands.. (one likes to believe)
.. lets not deny that one pays most for the label itself..

but just like CHOO (which is probs the only shoes i wear all the time when i go out) they got cushioned soles (which makes a HUUUUUGE difference... )and i personally prefer such shoes to any DIOR or GUCCI.

my best friend is a couture shoe designer who learned at the same school as Choo and she told me what the difference is between a Manolo for instance and a Gucci.
all i can remember of the steps she showed me is that manolos are a tad bit more complex.

but overall, i like manolos because they are just classics, timeless, sexy

Well thank you for explaining, Leyla. At least there is engineering involved and not all design or label. Maybe I need to get myself more acquainted with them....or maybe not since there is that chance I'll be hooked to the point of no return!
