Miu Miu for the Fall

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Miu Miu Boots    Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, yes these boots of the Miu Miu with the ethnic flair, they are indeed expensive, but when the ruggedly handsome man with the tousled hair invites you for the ride to the farm in the country to pick out the pumpkins for the carving, do you not wish be properly attired?

  1. Sharron Says:

    Oh, Manolo! I dislike these shoes. It is for two reasons – the beading colour combination, and the pricetag. We must focus our attentions to the other creations of Miu Miu!

  2. jjello Says:

    Oh. My. God. I am having a bootgasm – I LOVE them!

  3. zippy Says:

    The Zippy looked at the knitting/handiwork and found it to be quite average, the boot style seems ordinary, and Zippy agrees with Sharron on the price. Too much for a boot that lacks zip for the Zip! (pun intended…)

  4. SuperMex Says:

    Boots like this, now matter how attractive, discriminate against women with calves, of which I am one. Mooo, and boooo.

  5. Nancy Says:


    This style is all the more super fantastic; look at the sexy lace up front, that fabulous 4″ heel, that lovely embroidery and beadwork! I’m losing sleep gazing adoringly at them. Soon they will be mine…and they will lace lovingly about my calves.

  6. Annalucia Says:

    This boot would be perfect for the Annalucia if she were a Mongol horsewoman who spent her days herding her livestock from the saddle and practicing her archery by shooting wolves who crept too close to the newborn foals, and her evenings spinning wool by hand and singing to the music of the igil and the khomuz. Alas that the Annalucia is not that woman, and the Miu Mius will not do at all.

    Annalucia, don’t forget the fermented mare’s milk….

  8. Wadda Pradda Says:

    Wadda Pradda says the boots by Miu Miu make her cry Miow Miow! Wadda pradda feels the boots would make the calves on the ladies legs look FAT, not Manolo-slim!

  9. Kate Says:

    I hate to disagree with Manolo. In fact, I’m waiting for a tornado to drop a farmhouse on my head, and some badly dressed Midwestern girl to steal my beautiful ruby slippers even as I write this. However, where do suede fall boots make sense? It rains where I am, and that’s just death to suede! Plus, the tops look like macramé potholders in vintage seventies kitchen colors. For this they want more as much as I paid for my new dishwasher? Silly Miu Miu!

  10. catrandom Says:

    I kinda like them….

    I can picture an outfit that would be very cute with these. But I sure don’t love them $1,000 worth. That is, unless the hot pumpkin-carving guy is included.

    “the ride to the farm in the country to pick out the pumpkins for the carving…”

    That reminds me too much of Sally wasting Halloween with Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

  12. Brittany Says:

    Sorry, Manolo. Usually I agree with the shoes you like/dislike, but this time? Nooooooo. Bad, Manolo. Bad. Even without the embroidery, the shape of the boot itself isn’t especially great. I can already imagine the perfect outfit to go with these boots: an appliqued pumpkin vest with a black turtleneck and stirrup pants. And maybe some plastic ghost pins that light up or some black cat dangly earrings to, you know, continue the theme.

    Of course, you can pretty much forget about pumpkin picking with that ruggedly handsome man with the tousled hair.

  13. ChristinaM33 Says:

    I don’t utterly, utterly hate these boots the way some folks seem to, but I do like Nancy’s pair better. There is something about the heel on these that just looks awkward and I don’t like the bead work color/pattern combo. The pattern might work in a different color scheme or the color scheme might work with a different pattern, but with the yellow beads, I see owl eyes and it’s creepy.

  14. judi Says:

    Got to disagree on the Russian peasant boots.

    1. Heel would get stuck in ground of pumpkin patch.
    2. Dirt is hell to get out of suede & embroidery.
    3. Even on sale, price would pay for an entire pumpkin crop for underpriveledged kids.
