I tried on some Manolos this past weekend and I feel in love. They didn’t have my size and I have been searching for them online ever since. If I am not able to find them at NM, Saks, etc., and have to use ebay, how can I tell if they are real?

I’m not sure! I would check the sellers reviews and make sure they’re legit.

Thanks! It seems like I may have to pic another shoe because I can’t find my size on e-bay either. (And the 9.5 is on back order) Ioffer had my size but I doubt they are real since they are only $90.

1. Please tell me you meant for your subject to be a Nelly reference because that would be amazing.
2. Those look EXACTLY like the Manolos that were taken from the party on Sex and the City when Carrie had to leave her shoes in a pile at the door and was forced to walk home in old sneakers. And then her shoes never turned up. So she told her friend she was getting married to herself and registered at Manolo Blahnik and only registered for those shoes. It could just be that they’re from many seasons ago so they aren’t terribly plentiful anymore.
Please excuse how heavily-laden with pop culture references this post was.

I buy Manolos and Louboutins off Ebay! Haha, I’m awesome.
Always make sure they have a picture of the actual shoe. Ask them to take one if they don’t have one up. Check feedback – actually read it, make sure it’s not just buyer or unrelated feedback.
Check what country they’re from. Not to sound brash or to stereotype, but a lot of the sellers from China and a few other countries are touting “Manolos” that are really poorly made replicas.
It’s also helpful to check their return policy just in case they’re not represented correctly or don’t fit.

I don’t think you’d be able to tell until you get to see it in person. I’d rock a knock off though, if they were made well and if they passed as the real thing. No one would ever know and you’ve have some extra money in your pocket!
