    I found a size 37.5 open toe pair I have fallen deeply in love with. I normally wear a US size 6W.. or a 6.5 once in a while, depending on the shoe. Do you think there is a chance the MB's would fit me? Thanks!

    Honestly I think it would work out because manolos run a little small but it still might be a little big

    Thanks! OK, I hope they fit! I won them last night and am just waiting for them to get here now! If they don't fit, I had another bidder email me asking for them!

    Here is a picture of them!

    i think manolos run REALLY small... so that should work.

    i know its a bit off topic.. but isnt your shoe supposed to be this one? the heel on your pic looks a bit odd for a MANOLO. chanel girl would know ;)


    i would also like to know more about how MANOLOs size. court shoes, sandals but also flat sandals :unsure:
    tnx :flower:

    is there a picture of the label inside the shoe...the heel is suspicious and that other shoe leyla posted is worrying, but it still looks like high quality shoe in the close-up... you need to see the label inside... if they are authentic, there should be a picture posted

    eBay Auction

    Not sure if I can do this, but I was looking through eBay and came across this auction for a different pair, and if you take a look and scroll down to the picture of a magazine page(it has the animal print jacket and the envelope charm, etc) there is a pair that looks exactly like the Manolos(hopefully) that I got. I tried to zoom in on the article, but I can't right click on the page... it *kinda* looks like it could say something about Manolo Blahnik but I can't really tell.

    sweetie-i hate to be the bearer of bad news...but the auction SAYS that these shoes are made by NYLA...i personally have never heard of NYLA and the manolo box is certainly deceptive, but those are NOT manolos...and they will also probably be way too big for your little 6-6.5 size foot.... :cry: :doh: ...sorry!!!! :flower:

    Yes I thought the heel was a little weird and they look freakishly similar to the Dior shoes the season

    No, they arent fake...they are from 1996, i think. They were really hot then & are still really nice & right with the spectator trend...much better than the new "remake" that leyla posted, you got a great pair of shoes!
