More exotic items in the sale are leopard-print booties, heels, and even shearling lace-ups with stiletto heels.
The "secret" Manolo Blahnik spring sale has become very public, giving folks other than editors and insiders the opportunity to shop some spectacular heels for less. (Though, no surprise, the editors get first dibs on the shoes a bit earlier than the rest of the masses.)
Back in January, Andre Leon Tally served as master of ceremonies for the whole affair, wandering among the shoppers and giving advice on which heels to buy. He'll be back again this year, and frankly, he's a welcome presence at any sale -- all positivity, and sizable enough to stop pretty much any fights over heels that might break out.
The sale kicks off April 29, once again at the Warwick Hotel, so be prepared: Bring lots of cash (though as a tip, there's an ATM right across 6th Avenue), and be prepared to make some fast grabbing.
Manolo Blahnik Sale: Thursday at the Warwick Hotel (54th Street between 5th and 6th), 2nd floor, 11AM-3PM
