Manolo says, despite the misadventures with the Tupperwear, the shoes of the Cynthia Rowley they are usually worth the wearing.

For the example, the Manolo he saw yesterday this shoe in the black on the foot of the super fantastic girl in the cashmere sweater and the a-line skirt. It was the smart retro look, one that would stand out at the office, yet still be perfectly demure.

    Oh yes, I definately agree! While super pointy-toed shoes may be the classic look, I myself am more of a round-toe kind of girl. They ooze sophistication and are a heck of a lot more comfortable than trying to squeeze your toes into a shoe that could also be used as a weapon! We here at Shoebuy found that our customers feel the same way; our round-toe shoes are incredibly popular!

    These shoes, I think I could wear. I’m a plain Jane when it comes to foot gear, and the rhinestone (or diamond dripping) luxury shoes I tend to only be willing to wear if I was paid to.

    *Likes the black ones best, but might wear the red if she was being shocking.*

    Oh, now *those* are happenin’ shoes. Very Anne. Whew. I was deeply concerned after the acrylic sole nightmare.

    beautiful shoes, but I suspect tragically unsuitable for those of us with slightly thicker ankles.

    Now that’s more like it.

    This is my kind of zapato (I’m partial to straps) and I love the heel — it’s a gorgeous variation on those high-heeled Mary Janes with the chunky heels that were so popular with the faux-Goths several years back.

    Oh yes, the Queer Eye Carson he has the impeccable taste.

    O,yes indeed, we are seeing the smart sharp side of Miss Cynthia. Very nice heels they are too, thank you. The Zip must have a black pair to begin a ‘new’ basic wardrobe if such exists.

    Sigh. The Mme laVie, she does not care for the shoes of the Mary Jane variety. She is saddened that she doesn’t find delight in something that seems to be so fun for others. Happily, however, these days fashion trends are inclusive enough for everyone to enjoy the shoes that delight them the most. These are indeed wonderous times.

    Thank you, Manolo, for the slicing rebuttal to Carson’s judgement of the red shoes. Although I do find him entertaining on the show, when he said that, it just made me sad, because I love red shoes. And I don’t believe I am a whore.

    If you happen to read this, I have a question for you. I am a girl who works as an accountant for an auction house that sells off industrial equipment. Therefore, oftentimes, I have to go to dirty, oily factories and walk around on broken-up concrete floors. I also feel compelled to dress up for these auction days. Does wearing an expensive shoe usually mean more comfort? Walking around for 5 hours straight on concrete in heels can be very unforgiving. Are pricier shoes worth the extra cost in terms of comfort and wearability?

    It is the Texasexile’s opinion that every woman should have a pair of red shoes.
