I Spy: Manolos at 75% Off

By ManhattanMataHari

The Blahnik boutique’s final cut is one of our favorite sales of the season – you can get their drool worthy shoes at just a hint above sample sale prices without the fray. Even though their final 75% markdown started on Monday, there are still plenty of popular styles left. As per usual, the prices are marked by colored dots ranging from $225 to $375 and available sizes are marked on the bottom of each sole.

Flats, sandals, moccasins and even a pair of $625 basic nude patent Lisa pumps  are a budget friendly $225. We were also surprised to find many iterations of Carrie Bradshaw’s favorite Mary Janes at this price point in various tweeds and leathers, as well as some seriously head-turning glitter D’Orsays. All of the crystal embellished pumps and flats are $275 and the same goes for the fun Oxford style booties and pumps. Regular booties are all $325 while high boots are the most expensive (aside from the alligator collection) at $375. We were surprised to find so many basic colors and styles of boots available. Alligator pumps, sling backs and one sole short boot style all range from $1000 to $3000 (priced as marked) and many seem familiar from the last sale.

There are still lots left to choose from and the prices are certainly right. Our favorite picks were the black or beige pony fur chunky pumps that are a steal at $225 and the gore-tex quilted over-the-knee black boots for $375. Be sure to avoid dropping by between 2pm and 3pm since the boutique is often closed to restock.
