We are told that this season's Manolo Blahnik sample sale will take place on Thursday, May 12. Vogue editor, André Leon Talley will again preside as Prince Charming and help women choose the right shoe.
Shoppers usually begin to arrive at the sale at 5am but the browsing and buying is limited only to press until about 11am. Shoes range in price from $100 in leather, suede or satin to $300 for lizard boots. Hey, there's a reason why people wait hours. We suggest you go early if you want have a popular shoe size or just wait for the boutique end-of-season sale, which we prefer.
Keep your eyes posted to the site for details about the Christian Louboutin sale. These shoe masters usually schedule their sales within days of each other.
