This was my first trip to NY and hopefully not my last! The Manolo shop itself was a little hard to find at first as the store front is very unassuming (it's directly across the road from the modern art museum - I think that was the museum! Too busy admiring the shoes!) We looked for it on a Sunday, but unfortunately it's closed on Sundays. So I was there first thing on the Monday! Absolutely gorgeous shoes. Some are very pricey. Luckily it was my birthday coming up so my partner bought me 2 pairs!! Can't wait to wear them. I wish they had had a sale on. Staff at the store were very attentive and polite. Do not miss a visit to Blahnik, even if only to look. Superb all round.

My 1st trip to NY and Manolo - it had to be done & I wasn't dissapointed! I now have my 1st (!) pair of Manolos & they're fabulous. The service was excellent & the whole experience was a treat! If only I could have timed my visit with a sale I could have had more than one pair!
The Highlight of My Weekend

This was my 3rd visit to New York but my 1st visit to Manolo Blahnik, and what a visit it was. Luckily for me they had a sale on so I managed to purchase 3 pairs of shoes for the price of one. The service was unlike any other, absolutely fabulous, the staff were all friendly and attentive, I definitely didn't want to leave. If you love shoes then this is the shoe store to beat all the rest, the most beautiful shoes in the world reside at Manolo Blahnik. Every woman should own a pair and you feel like a princess after visiting the store. A must for all shoe lovers out there!
WOW-a shoe-lovers absolute dream!

If you adore shoes and appreciate the artwork and beauty of them then this is the store for you. If not, then don't even bother as you will never be willing to pay these prices. I, however, was willing and am looking forward to returning for the great service and designs I found there.
The best shoes in the world!

This is one of the main reason for visiting New York. Shopping and Shoes! The shop was a little difficult to find, just another average storefront, but behind that front lay a beautiful array of shoes. Perfectly hand crafted and displayed. The variety, colours, sizes and shapes, you could spend hours and tens of thousands of dollars, and it just took your breath away. The staff were welcoming and let you browse around the store at your leisure, unlike other stores, there was no persistent assistants pushing for a sale. Well in a shop like that there is no need to sell, the shoes do it all for you. Itís a must to visit this shop, even if its to look, trust me, if you donít buy shoes from here, youíll be comparing every shoe you see to them for the rest of your life!
