Let's forget about Mr. Manolo Blahnik for just a minute. That sounds blasphemous, we know, but it turns out that two pairs of the hottest "It" shoes worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the Sex and the City movie were not designed by him. You see them here: the $790 python gladiator sandal (left) by Christian Dior (which was spray-painted for the movie) and the $795 triple-strap python studded heel by Proenza Schouler. British Vogue reports that there's already a waiting list for the shoes in the U.K., so we called around town to find out if they shared the same fate on this side of the pond. Sadly, they do — but that doesn't mean you can't get them.
The Dior sandals will be available at Jeffrey and the Dior boutique on 57th Street. They're not in stock at either location, but the waiting lists are building. The Dior boutique expects a shipment within a couple of weeks, and eight people are already signed up for 'em. You can get on that list too by calling the Dior store. Or you can settle for the black leather or metallic varieties, which are currently in stock. Jeffrey is also waiting on a shipment of the python Diors. They expect eleven pairs to arrive within a couple of weeks as well, and they have already started a waiting list. They were unable to tell us how many names were on the list, but if you're the twelfth person to sign up, you might not get the goods — so call soon.
We were only able to locate one pair of the Proenza heels, in a size 38.5, at the Intermix at Madison Avenue. The sales associates said the shoe has been stocked for some time and doubted more shipments will arrive. So if you want that last pair, say a prayer, drop what you're doing, and get thee to Madison Avenue.
