Manolo Blahnik

Update: This post has been updated on February 19, 2017. Scroll down to see the new adds.

I know you’re going to love this! Remember the gorgeous blue Cinderella-like Manolos Carrie wore at the end of the Sex and the City Movie? Yeah, I couldn’t get them out of my head either. The classic design and the bold blue hue make them great contenders for your favorite formal footwear.

Sex and the City Loves Manolo Blahnik

In the movie Carrie said they cost $525, but due to the vast demand retailers almost doubled the price to an outrageous $965 making them a fictional purchase for most of us shoe addicts who are living on a budget. What a bummer!

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Windsor” Embellished Satin Pumps

Update (02/19/2017): Apparently one dupe was not enough, so Sarah Jessica Parker came up with a second Manolo Blahnik inspired version of her movie wedding heels for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. “Windsor” is far from being a steal at $585, but at least it’s approximately the same price as the one mentioned in the movie. Also available in silver grey satin.

You can order them in 32 (!) different colors and 3 heel height variations (6, 8 and 10cm) including a flat version! I just looooove how customizable these are, especially for the price of $99! This one is my personal favorite so far!

EKS “Kricoa” Satin High Heel Pumps

Update (02/07/2017): If you’re not quite ready to invest $100 in a high quality dupe, you might want to consider these Manolo Blahnik look-alikes by EKS instead which cost half as much as the Kaitlyn Pan version. I wouldn’t expect the highest quality or longevity from these shoes, but according to the reviews buyers seemed to be quite happy with their Hangisi dupes, so they might be worth a try. Available in blue, black, rose pink and yellow satin.

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Maddalena” Pointy Toe Satin Pumps

Update (01/21/2015): So basically Sarah Jessica Parker decided to dupe Manolo Blahnik’s highly popular “Something Blue” pump for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. The very same shoe which she has worn in the above mentioned Sex and the City movie. And she put a price tag of $545 on it, too. I don’t think her “good friend” Manolo will be too pleased finding out about this.

RSVP “Sincere” Satin Pumps

Update (06/14/2012): Found yet another pair of Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, again by RSVP. Available in 4 different colors: black, bronze, cobalt blue and silver satin. If you’re looking a higher heel, check out “Simonecj” by RSVP which isn’t quite as spot-on as “Sincere” but has a disctinctly higher heel.

RSVP “Zaza” Blue Satin Pumps

Update (09/23/2009): Stumbled upon these awesome Manolo Blahnik look-alikes by RSVP today. Look what I found! If you missed out on the Martinez Valero heels or just couldn’t justify the $160 price tag, these satin pumps by RSVP look almost identical, but are $60 cheaper. Available in blue, black, ivory and white. Grab these Hangisi dupes while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast.

Shiekh Mitzy Hachi-200 Satin Pumps

Update (09/23/2009): And here’s another alternative to the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps. I know these satin pumps by Shiekh aren’t exactly knockoffs, but the blue satin and the vamp embellishment reminded me of the Manolo Blahniks above and since these here resemble the Sedaraby pumps by Blahnik famously worn by Carrie Bradshaw a lot, I thought I just put them here as a budget-friendly alternative for under $50. Also available in pink and black satin!

Martinez Valero “Zenith” Blue Satin Pumps

Do not despair however! Because Martinez Valero has finally heard our prayers! He came up with an almost identical pair of his own blue satin pumps which also have the vamp embellishment, but cost only about 1/10 of the original Manolos. So if you are in need of beautiful yet affordable bridal shoes, these here might be your best bet. But hurry, once the masses get wind of these Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, I guarantee you, they will be gone in a minute!

To this date Manolo Blahnik‘s “Hangisi” Cobalt Blue Satin Pumps are still one of the most requested shoes for a Real vs. Steal post on this blog. Our inbox is filled with emails from women who asked us to find a budget-friendly alternative to Carrie Bradshaw’s beautifully blue Manolos in the 2008 Sex and the City movie. And while there are quite a few wonderful Hangisi look-alikes out there, many of them run either on the rather expensive side or are simply not available anymore, so I was super happy when I came across these vivid blue satin heels by ASOS because they’re the perfect blank canvas for a DIY Manolo Blahnik Hangisi shoe project. All you need – besides the ASOS shoes, of course – is a pair of sparkly shoe clips and you’re good to go! I happened to find a really cute version by this brand called Absolutely Audrey for $22.95 which will give you a very similar look to the Manolo Blahniks. The total price for this super basic DIY amounts to a little over $90 which is less than 1/10 of the real deal’s price. Now that’s what I call a real steal deal!

When I first saw the “Bellantomod” Lace-Up Back Open-Toe Booties by Manolo Blahnik, I couldn’t really believe that these are supposed to be Manolos because the designer usually goes for a more elegant and timeless style direction. This high heel though screamed Tom Ford or Gucci to me. It’s a very sexy and stylish shoe; I love the lacing detail in the open back of this so-called “shootie”. As you can see from the pictures below, Vicky B. is also a fan. And who can blame her? However, not everyone of us has VB’s shopping budget, so we came up with a list of possible Manolo alternatives for you.

Et voilà, bebe to the rescue! Being a pretty much spot-on dupe of the Manolos, the “Matison” is just as sexy as the real deal and with a price tag of $139, you won’t have to break the bank in order to afford it. But you better be fast because some sizes are beginning to sell out already.

Another budget-friendly alternative and currently on sale, too, are these stylish heels from Chinese Laundry. They’re not a 1:1 dupe or anything, but they’ll still give you the same sexy look. Make sure to check out the insanely gorgeous cobalt blue suede version which is my absolute favorite!

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?

I’m such a fan of tortoise! Like big time! I have so many tortoise sunglasses at home, but tortoise shoes? Nope. So naturally, when I first spotted these gorgeous tortoise pointed toe stilletos by footwear designer legend Manolo Blahnik I instantly fell in love. And I guess I’m not the only as model Miranda Kerr seems to love her tortoise Blahnik heels just as much and has worn them quite often already.

Diane von Furstenberg “Bethany” Tortoise Patent Dress Pumps

The Manolos are admittedly not the priciest pair of designer shoes we’ve ever featured on this blog, but if you can save half the price, why not? These tortoise pumps by Diane von Furstenberg are not exactly wallet-friendly at $325, but they do look super similar to the Blahnik heels and are still a good $270 cheaper. So which of the shoes would be your pick?
