Prada Linea Rossa T-Strap Sandal

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Vernice Linea Rossa Silver Sandal from Prada    Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, it is odd, but when the Manolo looks at this beautiful Prada Linea Rossa t-strap sandal the first word that leaps into his mind is “honesty”.

Yes, this shoe is beautiful, but it is not frivolous. It does not try to beguile you with false charm and needless frippery. It simply stands there before you, unadorned, possessed only of the natural beauty of its clean lines.

It is like the handsome woman in the full-bloom of middle age, demanding that you judge her not by the shallow and popular standards of our day, but by that which is eternal and unchanging. That there are many who will not recognize her beauty does nothing to diminish it.

    Suddenly, I feel much happier. Thank you, Manolo, I needed that today.




  2. Heelcandy Says:

    Now that is one classy shoe. I even hesitate to call it a shoe, because it’s more of a work of art. If this shoe doesn’t make you fall in love with Prada nothing will. Where’s my black dress! =).




  3. KateriBella Says:

    I am in love…the heel is wide enough to offset my clumsiness in anything higher than a kitten heel. However, I can’t link to it…such is the KateriBella’s luck today. Probably out of my expense budget and not in my size. *sigh*

    The Annalucia went to visit the site, and was taken with a fit of the giggles upon reading the following:

    DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, A CUSTOMER MAY ORDER NO MORE THAN THREE UNITS OF THESE ITEMS EVERY THIRTY DAYS.

    as it has given her the mental picture of someone ordering three of the lovely shoes, and she could not help but wonder what one would do with the odd one. Alas, the price tag of three hundred and fifty of the American dollar would make the shoe unattainable even if the heel height of the four inches did not already render it unwearable.

    And the Annalucia has the black silk dinner dress with which it would look so well…

    thank you, the Manolo… the rest of my weekend shall now be of the superfabulosity as i go from the film festival to the dinner to the theatre… knowing that *someone* out there is able to appreciate my classic-ness.

    oh… and the shoes? to die for.
