Manolo the Columnist: Demi from Coach

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

Dear Manolo,

Can you recommend a pair of office-suitable flats for the impoverished working girl who’s just started her first job?


Manolo says, as always the Manolo gives the same advice, to not purchase the cheap shoes of suffering and pain, made from the dubious petroleum-and-asbestos-based products that is advertised as being “leather-like”, but to save the moneys and invest them in the high quality shoes of great comfort and super fantasticness. For it is the well-known fact that beautiful shoes that are well-made and fit properly will make you stand up straighter and feel more confident, which will, in the turn, make your bosses recognize you as someone with whom to be reckoned.

And yet, how well the Manolo knows what it is like to be the impoverished young working person. Indeed, when the Manolo began his career in the shoe industry, so many years ago, as the eleven-year-old Second Assistant Shoeshine Boy in the shop of the Mercurio Albornoz y Bahamonde, he was paid in empty aluminum cans, lunchroom leftovers, and whatever spare change fell from the pockets of the customers. (Oh, you should have seen the magnificent scramble whenever the 100-peseta coin struck the ground!)

Thus, the Manolo sympathizes with his friends who find themselves working for The Man for wages that would not support the pigeon who lived rough in the park. Here is the Demi from Coach, the two-toned ballet flat which is on the sale for $99!

Manolo says, this beautiful, simple, rich-looking wedge, it is on the sale at the Gotham City Online, the sad part is that it is only available in the limited sizes.


Mules from the Coach

Manolo says, here are a the pairs of the mules from the Coach. Both of them, they show the sort of restrained styling and the subtle detailing that makes the Coach very much worth the wearing. And the colors they have the richness and depth that can only be achieved by those who take the time to prepare the leather properly.

From the time to the time you will hear the Manolo complain about the shoes made in the China, and why he prefers the shoes of the Italians. These colors and this leather, and the masterful way the shoes they are assembled, these are the reasons why.

Manolo says, these summery sandals from the Coach, they are on the sale at the Gotham City Online, all are selling for under the $100 of the American dollars.


The Wedges

Manolo says, that one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

I, like everyone and her sister, am looking for a pair of wedge sandals to wear this spring and summer that won’t make my delicate little feet look like the Queen Mary I & II. I don’t much go for espadrilles; they get so ratty and stinky after the first rainfall. But I do really, really like wedges with cork heels. And I’d be especially excited if you knew of any done up in metallic or beige leather, and positively orgasmic if they also had an ankle strap. Oh, and since these shoes are so trendy, I’d like to stay under $100. Yes, I’m also a picky eater.

Manolo says, the wedges they are indeed “in” this season. Here are the pair of the wedges from the Anne Klein that are slightly more than $100 American dollars, but are indeed most pleasing to the Manolo.

If these they are not to your liking than perhaps you be would more interested in these shoes from the Coach.

Manolo says, these shoes from the Coach, they have a charming simplicity that the Manolo finds appealing.
