Real vs. Steal – Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps

by Irina on February 2, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 2, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

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!

UPDATE (02/02/2014): Stumbled upon yet another Manolo Blahnik pump dupe from the Sex and the City movie. Check out this lovely cobalt blue satin pump by Audrey Brooke. Also available in ivory satin.

Aren’t these Nina shoes absolutely lovely? Price? $69.99 (sale price!) and available in 9 beautiful colors: cobalt, green, yellow, black, champagne, tiffany blue, fuchsia, ivory and silver.

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 knockoffs 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 knockoffs while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast. RSVP also has a flat heeled version of the Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes called “Cassiecj” ($99) which looks exactly like the Martinez Valero version except with a low heel.

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!

    Hi u still selling them?

  • Aaliyah21215

    That is ridiculous that the price inflated like that. That’s the reason why I would never purchase a thing from some of these high prolific designers.
