Manolo the Columnist: Cage from Kate Spade

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo

Recent times have not been good to me in the love/life department and I’ve decided it’s time to brush myself off and start anew. I have a summer of many events coming up and would like to look superfabulous to turn the boys heads. I’ve never put the investment into a particularly fabulous shoe and I’m wondering if you have any suggestions.


Manolo says, many of the Manolo’s friends are under the misapprehension that young men pay attention to the shoes of the young ladies.

This is not the case.

Unless the young man is the shoe fetishist, or the differently persuaded fancy lad (who would in no case be interested in you romantically) it is unlikely that any young man would even notice your shoes. Indeed, asked to choose good shoes for their girlfriends, most young men would pick the red plastic stripper shoes, with the lucite platforms, and the six inch spike heels.

And, yet the beautiful, sexy, super fantastic shoes are vitally important, because when you wear the beautiful shoes you feel better about yourself, more confident and self-assured. You stand taller and walk straighter, which is exactly what the boys do respond to. In the other words, most men cannot distinguish between the t-strap and the ankle-strap and yet, if your beautiful shoes make you feel more beautiful, you will be more beautiful to others.

Here is the Cage from Kate Spade, the sexy, sophisticated sandals guaranteed to make you feel good about yourself.
