Manolo says, this boot from the Anne Klein, it is sophisticated, elegant, handsome, and oh so sexy. In the short, it is the un-valenki.

    I love it – may go buy it this second. But – no post on Fashion Runway? I can’t believe Santino survived another elimination!!! Though obviously Marla (Darla?) had to go.

    As exciting as the Un-Valenki may be, I hurried in to work this morning to get the Manolo’s take on last night’s Project Runway! Where is it?

    No kidding! Not that the Valenki/Unvalenki question isn’t pretty serious stuff worthy of everyone’s consideration, but what about the near crash-and-burn of Santino last night? Is the Manolo taking time to write a proper thought-provoking essay? We await your wry assessment, master!

    I am glad I am not the only one who is in dire need of a Project Runway recap done as only the Manolo can…
    I am happy to wait, however…I’m sure the end result will be WELL worth it! (read: lots of good belly-laughs at Santino’s expense). =D

    I love I love I love these boots (and others like them), but I have stout athletic Norwegian calves and can never find any that will zip beyond my skinny ankles. Any suggestions?

    Lovely boots!

    OFF TOPIC: The Manolo, he might be interested in the quiz of http://www.quizgalaxy.com/quiz.php?id=73 Which David Hasselhoff are you?

    I humbly suggest to Vida that she search Zappos.com who have as a category within boots “stretch/wide calf.” Many lovely choices there. http://www.zappos.com/n/es/d/722000982/page/1.html

    Somewhere in the boots section, there was a comment from one of Manolo’s regular readers that listed a company that sells all their boots in a range of shoe and calf sizes. I apologize, because I can’t remember exactly where, but I think if you check “boots” and look in the various sets of comments, it’s there. Maybe it was posted by furlagirl?

    Yay! I will look! Thank you. I never knew such things existed because I’m a poor college student, and I never gave thought to paying more than $25 for a pair of shoes, but now that my husband has graduated we will finally be able to afford more than Payless. Woohoo! Giant nonsensical sentence there.

    Vida might also want to peruse the Ann Taylor Loft site. They have a small (but tasteful and on sale!) selection of tall boots with extended calf sizes.

    Yes, J. Crew also carries extended calf sizes, and they are also on sale now.
