Manolo says, maybe, possibly, if you were nine years old and playing the role of Belle in the production of “Beauty and the Beast.”

And yet, even as the Manolo mocks, he cannot deny that the shoe is made with beautiful materials, and is impeccably finished, even if it excessively childish.

    I love and loathe. I do see the Princess/RenFes look. *Love* Red* Shoes* But the handle thingy is off putting….

    Go Mariah. You know these have her name all over them.

    I’m so getting these. Are you kidding me?

    When I ROCK them you will be totally changing your tune. ; )

    Plus, I think Alice in Wonderland rather the Beauty & the Beast.

    I LOVE these. I desperately want them…I feel like they are one of those pairs of shoes that is absolutely essential to a fabulous collection, even if they are completely impractical and will probably only be worn once or twice.

    Alas, my husband has forbidden me to spend $700 on any pair of shoes until we are both done with graduate school. *sigh*. I will love them from afar.

    You know, without the handle thingy, I could totally fall in love with these. But that too-literal-minded handle pushes them over the line from extreme-but-fab to just kind of goofy.

    But still, that swirly effect under the buckle — seriously nice!

    I think I could fall in love with these . . . if they didn’t have the hooker-esque platforms!

    Is it just me or do these scream “carnival” or “circus?” I feel like they might have been inspired by a gilded carousel or something.

    LOL – now that you mention it, I totally see the resemblance. They are lovely to look at, but not my cup of tea.

    And you can also store them in your closet on cup hooks!

    With the handle they look too much like something that belongs on a shelf next to my mother’s teacups…yes she collects them… but take it off and they’re fair game! And dare I say it, even hot!

    I agree with Poochie, totally Alice in Wonderland and I love them! Alas, I cannot wear them due to my soccer playing days, broken ankles with torn ligaments leaves me at no more than a 2 inch heel, if only I had known then what I know now, Platforms Are HOT!!

    Pretty and whimscial, but definitely “costume”.

  13. Gigi March 20, 2008 at 12:34 pm #

    I would wear these in a red-hot minute but for the little handle and the swirly paint detail on the heel. I adore a platform shoe – height plus comfort!

  14. Poochie March 20, 2008 at 1:44 pm #

    I’ll let you know when these wing their way to me. I’m sure to put up my outfit for them as I will be wearing them the very next day. I don’t think they will arrive until the middle of April sometime.

    You all, of course, are welcome to come on by and see if you luuuvvvv them or hate them.

    : )

    Hmmmm. I am on the fence. I admire the workmanship but my shoe loving heart did not skip a beat.

    I absolutely adore these shoes!! But I know the price tag will keep me from ever getting them. But they are gorgeous!

    Well as usual we have the suggestion that anything with a platform belongs to hookers! You Americans and your prudishness! Still I don’t suppose that we can expect much else since the Founding Fathers were Puritans. Hookers wear high-heels and platforms because they need to attract customers. Platforms simply means that the heel can be higher and the higher (or should I say longer!) the heel the sexier the shoe; high-heels are sexy, get it?!

    Childish or not, these certainly cause a stir in the loins and I’d love to know what those metal scrolled handles feel like on the back of my thighs!

    I love these shoes. They’re beautiful AND humorous!

    Have them in cream! :)
    The handle does look a little childish but hip hip hooray it comes off! =D
