Hello! I am looking for a very specific pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes for my wedding – Hot pink Rinuccia’s. They are an older style and I was able to find them on two different websites. I can’t tell if they are trustworthy/reliable… but I LOVE these shoes!
Can anyone tell me if they’ve had experience with http://www.outletsus.com or http://www.karmenshoes.com
They both look a little sketchy, but they both have the exact shoes that I want! Any help is appreciated!!

The 2nd one looks better than the first. But since neither have phone numbers an only allow contact via e-mail I’d be wary.

If something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
I suggest that any website claiming to have an older style that no one else has, probably is selling replicas, not originals.

@julies1949: Oh I’m sure they are all replicas. Unless they are an authorized dealer by the brand they are usually selling replicas.

You will be buying fakes. Check out shopstyle.com which will link you to credible websites that sell the shoes.
I would start making friends w/ the Sales people @ Barney’s, Saks, and Neiman so you can find out in advance any Sales. That’s how I’ve been able to pickup my shoes.

I have the shoes for sale in a size 36.5 or 6.5. I purchased them from Barneys in Dallas. Only wore them around the house before the wedding to break them in and for 4 hours at the wedding, so they are in great condition. I also had a rubber sole added to the bottom of the shoes at a high end shoe cobbler to make the shoe more sturdy and less slippery. These shoes are SOLD OUT, so very hard to find!
Here are pics of the actual shoes, they come in the original box and dust bag as well. Let me know if you have any other questions =)
