I am a Jimmy bride, YAY, haahaaahaaa – – I have two pairs of Manolos.  With each pair of designer shoes I own I keep them in their felt bag with tissue in their toe and the plastic stick in them – you know that goes from the back of the shoe into the tissue stuffed toe!?!? 

The other thing is that on the bottoms of the shoes I have the cobbler put a protector so I don’t scuff up the balls of the foot part. It also helps so I don’t slide all over. 

Congrats on your purchase – they’re spectacular Laughing

No Worries – – they don’t come cheap so anything to make them last longer, LOL….And no they don’t look different at all. Naturally we don’t ever sit with the bottoms of our shoes facing anyone so really no one will ever know you have a protector on the bottom.  Its wear and tear will cost you more in the end if you don’t have any protector on the bottom, you know what I mean?

I didn’t know anything about their care until my bff (my NYC bm) told me. She is the one who has shown me all the ropes to luxury shoes, LOL

@hilsy85: IN LOVE WITH THOSE SHOES!!!  Did they come in different colors (I would want a violet/purple pair!) ? Also how tall is the heel on those Manolos? I can only wear a 2inch heal max because I am tall and JUST make the cut off in 2inch heels to not have to pay extra to have the added material on my wedding dressing…

 

everyone else.. i love Manolos (choos, louboutin.. etc.). and need some suggestions for my shoes!! I would love to have a colored show, my wedding colors are purples (lavender and dark grape), so either or a violet! However, I also love the shoes COVERED in bling (in an elegent way) not white/clear ,but a light color like a pale pale silver or perhaps the crystals could match some of the the embellishments crystals on my dress, which are pewter. NOT CLOSE TOE, or a solid back..sling backs are good, or straps..lol

Any suggestions? Oh and max I can have is a 2in heel, because of my height anything more than 2inches would require them to add more material, extra $$. PLEASE help. thanks!

Wow, love the shoes, ladies!  I wore Manolos for our wedding too 🙂  I went with the silver sedarby (a shoe that I always wanted).  I debated buying them for weeks when I decided with all of the money I was paying for everything else… these would be one thing that I could wear during the wedding and still get use out of it after the big day. I stayed under budget with everything except these.  No regrets:

 

 

Great tips, jackie-o!

@splatt11x: Pilotsgirl beat me to it! They do come in purple, and they also come in a kitten heel height, which sounds like it would work perfectly for you!

For an elegant but sparkly shoe, I immediately thought of a Jimmy Choo shoe:

The only thing is, the heel is like 4 inches, so way higher than what you wanted 🙁
