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 $995 making them a fictional purchase for most of us shoe addicts who are living on a budget. What a bummer!

Dune Breanna Jewelled Square Brooch Pointed Toe Satin Pumps
Update (08/05/2017): I think I might have spotted my favorite Hangisi dupes yet! They’re by Dune, cost $140 and also come in a beautiful white satin. Love, love, looooove! Prior to posting this dupe find, I made sure to order these gorgeous heels for myself before you guys could snag them up for yourself. Now I’m impatiently waiting for them to arrive at my doorstep. Will keep you posted how I like them in person! By the way, Betti is another great Hangisi dupe with a mid-height heel available in various colors and uppers like black and red and suede or patent leather.

River Island Satin Rhinestone Bow Pumps
Update (08/05/2017): Also really like these bow-adorned blue satin pumps I discovered at River Island which would also double as a great Manolo Blahnik Hangisi look for less alternative. They cost $50 (sale price, down from $96), so they’re 95% cheaper than the real deal which I think is a totally awesome steal deal!

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.

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 several of the other Hangisi alternatives. 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.

Badgley Mischka Nichole Embellished Satin Pumps
Update (06/12/2016): Badgley Mischka’s Nichole isn’t available in cobalt blue satin (yet!), but otherwise it’s an almost spot-on dupe of Manolo Blahnik’s Hangisi Pumps, don’t you agree? Available for $215 in either magenta satin or gold or silver metallic.

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 look for less alternative, again by RSVP. Available in 4 different colors: black, bronze, cobalt blue and silver satin. If you’re looking a higher heel, check out Simone 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! If you missed out on the Martinez Valero heels or just couldn’t justify the $160 price tag, these satin pumps 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 dupes, but the blue satin and the vamp embellishment reminded me of the designer version above and since these here resemble the Sedaraby pumps by Blahnik famously worn by Carrie Bradshaw a lot, I thought I would 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-alikes, I guarantee you, they will be gone in a minute!
