Manolo Blahnik Does Driving Shoes
December 05, 2011 | Style & Beauty
To quote the renowned fictional shoe lover (and owner of countless pairs of Manolo Blahniks) Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City, “I’m talking about a woman’s right to shoes.” And with Blahnik’s new colorful collection of driving moccasins ($495)—think pale pink to deep blue to everything in between—choice is exactly what Chicagoans will have. Comfortable and light (the preppy drivers are lined with soft terry cloth—a feature Blahnik is particularly pleased with), they are as at home in town as they are on a weekend getaway, which is why it’s easy to imagine them being on many a wish list this holiday season.
