Kneel Before Blahnik Caged Sandal!

Manolo Blahnik Caged Sandal

Manolo says, happily!

Indeed, the humble shoeblogger kneels ecstatically, because once again the Maestro Manolo Blahnik proves that he deserves our devout worship.

    these are beautiful. He is truly the maestro. I can’t say I see too many cage shoes I like. But these are so exquisite. They are just so well balanced and delicate, and look like they would enhance the beauty of the foot, and not try and overwhelm it.

    They remind me of the top of Hostess cupcakes. This is a good thing.

    That’s just art. Plain art. I was reading Vanity Fair’s article on Christian Louboutin yesterday, and while he is indeed very talented, the article called him the new Manolo Blahnik. I must respectfully disagree. Exhibit A.

    That is the most interesting slingback I’ve ever seen, and I agree it’s absolutely beautiful. However, I wonder about the “end” of the curls, the two little bits that drift off to space…when this shoe is on the foot, how do they look? Do they lie against the foot, giving your ankle a hug with every step (and if so, do they poke into the foot?), or do they stick out like little devil horns? I’m certain the Maestro has considered that, but I’d really like to see them being worn.

    So beautiful! I’m not a cage-shoe fan, but these delicate things suit me fine. Fortunately for my wallet, they’re sold out of my size.

    Oooh! All those curlicues remind me of pasta–in a yummy, good carbs way. Remember the scene in The Gold Rush where Chaplin twirls his shoe laces around his fork? You could almost do that with these.

    Fabu. That’s all. Just Fabu.
