Those are divine! I think navy blue would look good with that kind of red as well.

I agree I think red can go with just about anything (though maybe not yellow unless you are going as mcdonalds chic). Nude or gold if classic color combo when paired with red or purple which is a bit more daring but can look GREAT with red as well if you have the right shade.

Thanks everyone!

I love the idea of the red croc too, if you couldn't tell it's my favourite colour.

Red Sole - Those blue pumps are gorgeous. I haven't seen them anywhere unfortunately. I s'pose there's always special ordering as a last resort, the only thing that keeps me sane if I can't find a pair that I badly want.

Could somebody please enlighten me as to how these 2 Manolo styles run sizing-wise? Are they wide up-front...or narrow? I'm usually a 36 in Louboutin (and have fairly narrow feet) -- don't own any Manolo's yet....but tried on some 4-inch ones once before and the 35.5-36 fit me.

Should I go with 36 or 35.5 in these?


(source: ebay)

And how about these?....same style except with ankle-strap. Didi these sandals come in a 4-inch heel, or just the 3.5 inch? And is sizing the same as the above slide?





(source: ebay)

TIA!

hey! I have the top ones. I am a 39 in Manolo Blahnik pumps...and 38.5 in most sandals...and in NORMAL CL shoes which there aren't really any normal sized Louboutins anymore.....I am a 39.

I got the 39 in those. The ankle strap ones...I would be a 39.

Shopping247 has the ankle ones.....most stores got the 3.5 inch in the second pic...but the boutique did it in 4....

they are GREAT shoes.

I would have them measure the insole for you!

Thanks, guccigal! The tiger stingray print really caught my eye the first time I saw them last year, in the Bergdorf catalog....but as usual 3-3.5 inches just don't do it for me. I love that print. Was reading Harper's Bazaar the Nov. or Dec. issue and saw a photo of Gayle King wearing those....I got up and knew I had to track them down!

Normally I am not too big a fan of how Manolo does animal prints/exotics/etc. -- but the way he did animal prints on several shoes amazes me. The tiger stingray above is one of them. There's the leopard print Arsenia, and then the leopard print VELVET Sedaraby (a really unique leopard print, almost like white on black). Any chance the leopard print Arsenia or the leopard print velvet Sedaraby (in 4") can still be purchased from boutiques (without special-ordering and the 20% markup)?

I have the leopard print arsenia....I loved them so much I got the white aresenia special ordered.

but basically...your best bet is to stalk ebay to find them.....stores dont have them...maybe one day to repeat but they are shelf stock or anything.

I nabbed a pair of the Marie-Antoinette style shoes. Sophia Copala wouldn't let Manolo Blahnik order many...like 1-2 of each per style.....and one came in today in size 39.5 and my SA is sending to me.

they are friggin expensive but amazing. Also.....Sophia wouldnt let any special orders be made.....

does anyone have a pic of the movie shoes?
