Botkier Francis Sandal on the Sale

Francis Flat Sandals from Botkier

Manolo says, yes it is the darkest and gloomiest part of the year, when you feel like going back to the bed, pulling the cover over the head, and setting the alarm for April.

And because of this, how can one possibly consider buying the colorful, frisky, vernal sandals from Botkier?

But, the Manolo asks, not rhetorically, will the spring not arrive at its appointed time? And will you not then be needing the colorful, frisky, vernal sandals from Botkier?

And so, thus, would it not be the good time to buy such feetwear, when it is out of the season, and the prices are low?

How low?

This low: the reduction of $85 of the American dollars, almost 45% off of the regular price!

Spring: It is not as far away as you think.


Manolo the Columnist: Tina from Botkier

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

Dear Manolo,

My fortieth birthday is approaching at the end of next week, and I’m beginning to suspect that my husband is going to throw a surprise party for me. At least that’s what I hope he’s doing with all of the furtive phone calls and skulking about. Anyhoo, this means that I’m going to have to wear makeup and good clothes pretty much 24/7 until the event comes off. Can you recommend some festive shoes that aren’t too obvious?

Manolo says, ayyyyy! The Manolo loves the surprise parties! One minute you are minding your own business, accompanying the loved one to his home for the “simple dinner”, and the next, people are leaping at you from behind couches.

Of the course, this letter sounds like the obverse of the set up for the episode of every domestic sitcom ever made, in which Lucy suspects that Ricky is having the affair, and ends up wrecking her surprise party with the hilarious hi-jinks.

In this version, however, Lucy suspects that Ricky is organizing the surprise party, but he is really having the affair with Ethel Mertz, which Lucy wrecks with the hilarious, and fatal hi-jinks. Final scene: Lucy being led off to the gas chamber by the priest, played by special guest star Red Skelton.

Look! Here is the Tina from Botkier, the celebratory leopard-print peep-toe that Lucy would have favored if she had received the last minute pardon from the governor, as played by Milton Berle.

The Lulu from Botkier

Lulu Sandals from Botkier

Manolo says, here is the Lulu from Botkier, the flat sandal that embodies two of the lesser trends of the season, both of which the Manolo approves: the easy entry zipper in the back, to help us deal with the recent spate of complex, torus-and-klein-bottle shoes, and the airy mesh panel, which is perhaps the first reasonable step away from the complex, torus-and-klein-bottle shoes.

Manolo says, the weather has finally turned warm, and that impeccably dressed man who looks vaguely like Derek Jeter has finally, after much hinting on your part, asked you to accompany him to dinner and the concert of jazz trombone at Carnegie Hall.

And while you have your doubts about the concert, this despite his assurances that it will be “off the hook”, you have no doubts about what shoes you will wear: these sleek and streamlined metallic wedge sandals from Botkier.

With luck, the post-concert evening will turn chilly, and he will offer you his coat.
