SHOESday: the Manolos

Longtime readers might recall these...but they are so good they bear repeating!
My one and only pair of Manolos - you can read the purchase story here.

Today, focusing on the little details:
This is the inside of the heel cup - that's a little strip of elastic you can see, it helps hold the shoe on the foot - perfect!
And the heel - such a thin elegant heel, but perfectly balanced. These really are very very comfortable shoes, for a high-heeled shoe. And the textured leather - these touches all make a simple black shoe so much more!

Goodness me. what wouldn't they go with? Just about everything. I'm intrigued by the elastic. Where do you put it?

It's just a little strip that is sewn inside the heel cup (ie at either end of the strip) - you don't put it anywhere, it just helps cup your heel (hope that makes sense!)

Gorgeous shoes.
If only I could make a tea cosy to match. What a perfect world that would be.
Stalk, stalk, stalk.

Very very elegant. Better hide those ones from EE and RR as they may just fancy them or you could just dontate them to me as I now know we are the same size. Oh to dream per-chance to have as ones own

I think one of the reasons women are willing to pay so much for manolos is that they are comfortable. At least that's what I've heard, not owning any myself.

you've started something now - my DD is posting shoesday photos as well and started with her fave red ones last week. Red Shoes ! Maybe a coincidence, maybe not.
This week it's her goth boots.

....Damn.... Just, damn. Look at those shoes, they are beyond great. Sexy, classy, elegant, and just a little naughty looking. Perfect for, well, anything.
