Manolo says, the Manolo he needed to start the Monday with something pretty, and this ankle-strap skimmer from the Marc Jacobs, it is delicate and fresh and imbibes deeply of the essence of spring.

    For very long slender feet!

    the skimmer will not flatter the large traingular flat feets of those of healthy peasant stock. shiloh shall now retire to her thatched cottage to bemoan her lack of arches and shed many tears that hers are not the feet of elegance.

    Awe, how cute! I especially like the blue ones. How comfy!

    I have these, in the ballet flat version. I broke them out for the first time last Friday to much applause.

    Audrey Hepburn is smiling down from heaven. How pretty.

    Where is the arch support in this shoe??? Okay, just shove the orthotics inside, and then the foot. Ouch.

    No arch support? Am I the only one who needs some structure in a shoe? May as well wear a pretty sock and forget the shoe.

    This is the first time I have ever disagreed with you, Manolo. These are pretty objects sans feet, but I don’t think they would hold up (aesthetically) when worn. Have I lost the superfantastic intuition? Buaaaaaaa! I cry.

    I think they are very beautiful (I picked out some choices from this collection, though not these particular ones)–but I agree with Maureen–no arch support! How hard can it be to have some built in? For that price, I would expect more. Still, very pretty to look at…

    Very pretty! I love the blue ones. They are so cute.

    The Annalucia must agree with many of the foregoing comments. Not only is there no arch support (a very bad thing) but so much of the upper is cut away that the foot may very well bulge over the open the sides – like the large-bottomed lady sitting on the small bicycle seat. This is not comfortable; this is not becoming.

    the annalucia speaks with great wisdom.

    I adore these shoes. Very flattering for those of us with long feet and high arches.

    The Ushie, by the time she saves up for the blue ones, they will be long gone…

    Manolo are you feeling well? This shoe doesn’t seem to be the typical superfantastic that you give us.

    These remind me of sleds, actually. :-)

    (Ooh, nice little preview tool when writing a comment.)

    A lesson: read comments before commenting, now I have more to say:

    Shiloh, these do not look like such “archy” shoes. But I understand! Ooh, and that’s been said. :-)

    OMG: Marc Jacobs, the Wizard of the Shoe!! These are unbearably adorable.

    I have them in green and they are VERY comfy. As a matter of fact, I broke them on a day where I walked from sun up to sun down (shopping) and I had absolutely NO complaints. Love,love,love these shoes……How can one complain about arch support if they have never worn them????????

  20. Robyn May 11, 2006 at 11:35 am #

    Feh! The shape of those shoes are for pre-schoolers! They would look adorable on Hello Kitty and that’s it. Even if you have perfectly slim feet and ankles, there would still be no reason to pick them over all the other super fantastic shoes. For the first time, I disagree with my beloved Manolo.

    Miss Tanya-they may have been humoring you, after they figured out how much you dropped on them. But iff you love them, screw everyone else, and enjoy.

    shoe? what shoe? these look like roller skates sans wheels, or cartoon character (think bunnies) shoes! Forget arch supports, how about something I can actually wear?

    She saw something white drip from the tip. A rush of excitement went through her. She knew more was coming. She opened her mouth and kept stroking it, but now that shed seen cum, she was squeezing it harder.

    OK, that should keep you going. Back to work.
