Miracle of Miracles: First Day of Manolo Sale Not Total Insanity

Time to indulge your inner Carrie Bradshaw — Manolo Blahnik is having a sale. We stopped by today to check out the crowd, and the place was definitely teeming (but it was a suitably uptown set, not a lot of hair-pulling). The Shoe Gods have slashed prices up to 75 percent off their spring collection of pumps, flats, and sandals marked down to $185 to $600. The Onur pair of red leather cutout flats are $185 (originally $745), the Buc gold sequined high heels are $200 (originally $645), and nude or black Konak high heels are going for a mere $300 (originally $1,195). The selection is ample, but with the masses invading the store like they were today, you’d be lucky to find your size by the end of day two. But for Manolos at fire-sale prices, isn't it worth keeping the faith?

After the jump, ogle some of the remaining stock.
