Miu Miu Vernice Pop Pump for the Monday

Vernice Pop Pump by Miu Miu   Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, it is again Monday, and you are back at your desk, dealing with the petty demands of the working day.

Still, buried beneath your professional and business-like exterior, lies the softly beating heart of the free-spirited romantic, the sort of girl who would wear these red Miu Miu Vernice Pop Pumps with Harris tweeds and the felt cloche. This look is inappropriate for your office, faintly ridiculous, and somewhat anachronistic, and yet also completely adorable, and likely to attract the admiring gaze of poetic men.

    Without that strange, salmon-colored (on my monitor) inset, I’d love these to pieces. As it is, they veer ever-so-slightly over the line into clown shoes.

    Perhaps this color is more to the Bridey’s taste…

    I find myself strangely drawn to them, even though they at first reminded me of bowling shoes. I think I like them.

    They are fabulous, and I would wear them – if the heel was lower. O Manolo, is there anyone making the most outstanding shoes for those of us whose feets cannot stand heels above 2.5″?

    These lovelies were on display at my local Saks. They are truly beautiful. I am praying that they have my size when they go on sale.

    Love these! But Saks has only one size in each color left. Did the Manolo incite a stampede?

    I have shoes in this same bojangles style, though in a more muted black and crocodile. They are just precious!

    I love these shoes…and Bottega Veneta has a bag that matches!

    Indeed, the somewhat more subdued colors are more my taste, good Manolo. That second version is stunning; I want! I even have a skirt that would be perfect with these….

    Indeed the second pair is more to my taste, good Manolo. And I have a skirt that would be perfect with the shades-of-brown version…. I want!

    Hmm… I almost really like them, but I wonder if I’m the only person who does not like those thick heels – they look out of proportion. A sleek stiletto would better suit this shoe, in my opinion.

    To the Tracy: You are not the only person who does not like the thick heels. I don’t care for them, either.

    I’m a sucker for spectaror/wingtips. They look very 1944-on-hallucinogens.

    The stiletto would not work because of the menswear styling and bold color blocking of the shoe. It is all about proportion and keeping within the story, and this story is substantial. It needs a substantial heel.

    (incidentally, these are my favorite shoes of Fall/Winter 2007)
