Inside Manolo's Final Summer Markdown

If you are debating if you should pop over to Manolo Blahnik's mid-town boutique to scope out their final sale-- don't debate, just go! This sale is the best sale ever hosted at the Manolo store.


All shoes are priced at either $195 or $295. That includes an array of Hangisi shoes. With prices like these and an amazing selection to match, it's no surprise that 54th Street was the place to be today.

You can click here to see pictures from inside the sale or shop from the assortment we curated above. As a matter of fact, RueLaLa is hosting an amazing Manolo sale with discounts ranging from 40% to 60% off and there are lots of Hangisi, Fabiona, and Lurum styles.

The historical sale is tied to an announcement, in April, that Manolo's U.S. partner George Malkemus would not be renewing his licensing agreement with the parent company after a 37-year relationship. The corporate shift is the root of the abundance of Blahnik sale merchandise. You can read more insights over here.

Lines at the sale grew quickly as word got out about the amazing prices and assortment. At the end of the day, there were so many shoppers waiting to get into the sale that they were given "come back" cards with numbers for priority entry on Tuesday.

Afternoon shoppers reported that almost all sizes of Hangisi flats were sold out and the heel assortment wasn't much better. Those who wear a 40 and 41 will have the most luck. We've received conflicting reports about restocking. We will update this post as soon as more information is confirmed.

During busy markdown periods, phones are not usually answered at the boutique and sale merchandise is not shopped. This sale is only at the NYC Manolo boutique and discounts are not available online,

A few pointers for Manolo's final markdown: Shoppers shouldn't hoard display shoes, you should be loyal to one salesperson (they work on commission) and try to be in and out quickly because there is a one-out-one-in policy when the store is crowded. There are usually only about 15 to 20 shoppers permitted in the store at one time.

This final markdown sale is scheduled to run for about three weeks or until all the inventory is sold. At that time, Manolo employees take a vacation and the boutique reopens with the Fall season's merchandise.
