Editors went apeshit over the colorful pointy-toed pumps in J.Crew's fall 2012 collection, which were produced in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik. But then things got awkward after Blahnik professed to having no idea the partnership even existed. Now a rep from J.Crew confirms that the shoes will not be produced for fall, but they still hope to collaborate in the future.
