Giuseppe Zanotti Ornamented Sandals for the Monday

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back at your desk, doing that thing that you do, so that the people that you love can enjoy the comfortable standard of living typical of the Americans of your class.

Sadly, this article has you convinced that the people of your class, the sort of well-educated, aspirational middle, no longer care about dance as the art form.

This makes you sad, not merely because you have long been (to the chagrin of your husband) the balletomane, but also because you know how hard the young dancers work to achieve excellence, and now more of them are having their hopes dashed. (Just as you had your own twin hopes of becoming the prima ballerina/large animal veterinarian crushed when you took your first organic chemistry course.)

And this reminds you that we live in the era of cheap and juvenile entertainments, of endless comic book super hero movies and senseless reality television shows. And although you do not wish to be the curmudgeoness, you long for the return of the middlebrow culture, which seemed to disappear about ten minutes after you achieved adulthood.

Do young people, college students, discuss books and movies and music with the same fearful earnestness that was so common in your youth?

Is it possible to fully consider Proust in 140 characters or less?

Ayyyy! And now you realize that you are ranting in your brain, upset that you were cheated out of your chance live in the world in which being the adult was cool. In the stead, you have arrived at the one moment in history when callow youth and their callow enthusiasms have become the highest aspirations of mankind.


Well, at least our society has excelled in providing us with magnificent shoes.

Maestro, musical accompaniment, if you please..

The Manolo sings…

I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in paris, chestnuts in blossom
Holiday tables under the trees
April in Paris, this is a feeling
That no one can ever reprise

I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris
Whom can I run to
What have you done to my heart


Giuseppe Zanotti Speaks!

Manolo says, from the Manolo’s friends at Net-a-Porter comes this interview with the amusingly charming Giuseppe Zanotti.

Maybe is my opinion. But..I…after twenty-eight years around this woman universe, I think I study more the woman than the shoes. Is not so important for me, for myself, to see shoes around the world. I don’t like to see other shoes from other designer.

I like to see woman. Because I understand more from the woman. You know, the woman, the walk, the talk, the woman…movimenti… dance. She’s like a dance. She is a beautiful wild animal when the woman walk. She’s beautiful. She’s like a panther, no?

The Manolo agrees! She is the beautiful wild animal when the woman walk!

Giuseppe Zanotti: From Sublime to Ridiculous?

Manolo says, compare and contrast the following two shoes from Giuseppe Zanotti.

Manolo says, when the Manolo’s shoe-obsessed friend Wayne pointed out these two Giuseppe Zanotti shoes to the Manolo, the Manolo’s initial reaction was to laud the first for it’s combination of classical beauty and sublime construction, while deploring the second for its irrational science-fictiony exuberance.

And yet…the longer the Manolo considers the second shoe, the more he has reconciled himself to its over-the-topness. Indeed, the Manolo now believes that the right rock-n-roll girl could make this shoe work for her in the right conditions with the exact right attitude and outfit. Everyone else should select the first, which is undeniably beautiful.

Of the course, the real question is how can two such very different shoes, which share almost nothing in the way of aesthetic vision, be produced by the same designer?

The answer is, that they are not. There are clearly two different designers at work in the Zanotti atelier.

Manolo the Columnist

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

Dear Manolo,

I like a woman who has beautiful feet but unexciting taste in shoes. So I had the great idea to buy her a pair of heels as a gift, and I need your help. I’m looking for something hot and sexy to make other men jealous, but of course with her comfort in mind. What do you think?


Manolo says, generally, the Manolo counsels against the man giving shoes to the woman as the surprise gift, mainly because of the problem of sizing.

However, in this case, it is clear that the Manolo’s friend has closely studied the shapely sexy feets of his fine, fine lady, and thus is probably well acquainted with their needs.

Sadly, even with that, the Manolo’s friend is somewhat deluded if he thinks the Manolo, the mere mortal man, can find him the super-sexy-hot comfort shoe. Such miraculous holy relics exist only in the medieval fantasy world of valiant Arthurian knights in service to chaste maidens. And, like the Holy Grail, this will-o-the-wisp will always be just beyond the grasp of all but the purest-hearted

Still, as Sir Percival can tell you, sometimes the quest for perfection is everything.

Look, here is the E90341 from Guiseppe Zanotti, the costly but exceedingly beautiful crystal and patent leather sandal. Is it comfortable? Who knows! Is it sexy? Yes, emphatically!
