Manolo says, normally when one thinks of the cage sandal, one of the shoe trends which has recently swept the field, one thinks of the aggressively urban, Queen Boadicea, lady-warrior-straps-on-her-leather-armor type of shoe, in black or dark brown.
Not our beloved Maestro Manolo Blahnik. For the man of such delicate and whimsical sensibilities, when he hears the words “cage sandal”, he thinks of birds, and of making the dainty bronze containers for your tiny parakeet toes.
Or else, he uses brilliant blue satin to swaddle your lower extremities in Bird of Paradise color!
Ayyy! Such beautiful shoes!
