Apologies if you’re sick of me! I am adding to my blue shoe possibilities and just wanted some input. I have not yet found a pair that is as beautiful in color as the Manolos but my hunt continues!
I started out by swooning over these beauties (still am):
After I dealt with the fact that I just can’t spend that kind of money on them, I purchased these Menbur shoes:
The above are cute, but I’m concerned that the bow is too loud (keep scrolling for pictures). So this week, I’ve purchased the following two pairs…
Nina Elke in True Blue:
Glint Avalon (since Badgley just won’t make these guys in a darker blue without being dyed):
The last pair are still on their way to me (I tried them on in a black and had nordstroms order them for me), but I have pics of the other two. They’re giant pics, and the one of them on my feet is so blurry, sorry about that!
And of course, here is my dress.
Which pair would you choose out of these? Do you have other suggestions? I’d love to hear them if you’re not sick of me yet! Thanks ladies!

please pm me a real life pic of the nordstrom shoes when you get them! i was considering them too, but i wasn’t sure of the actual color. i’m going for more of a royal blue.

@kitzy: Yeah, I am too. I just love royal blue. My bridesmaid’s dresses are cobalt blue with a navy blue sash, so I thought it’d be okay to extend into the navys. But the royals/cobalts are still my first love. Do you have the Laelas in your possession? (Looking at your icon) I’ve wanted those pretty badly too! I’ll keep you posted, the glints should be here in a couple days!

Oh man! I missed the part about the first ones being so expensive! I like the royal blue. Hope you find some lovely ones. My maids will be in cobalt blue too. I’ve been searching for the perfect blue shoe for some time.

I love the Glint shoes, mostly because I love love love the Badgley Mischka ones, but I’m looking for more of a pump, not a sandal. How comfy are the Menbur’s? Another bee was saying how they are soooooo comfortable!

I love the Nina’s–it’s all about the buckle!

@LinzyJo: Yeah, it’s too bad those shoes are Manolos and $775! Beautiful, right? We will stay the course and find our beautiful cobalt shoes! Let me know if you find success anywhere – definitely, stay in touch!
@Bostonsmom: The Menburs are actually quite comfortable. The support in them are very good and they run true to size. My hesitance with this particular pair have to do with the sheer size of the bow – I’m afraid the bow will get caught on my dress or something to that extent.
@lifegavemelimes: Thanks! I ordered the Ninas on a whim (with the endless.com 25% off sale going on) thinking that I’d turn around and send them back since they’re navy blue, but Im loving the way they make my feet look. Certainly a contender!

@pengoala: I was just going to say that they might snag the underside of your dress. That would be my exact fear. Especially while kicking up your feet and dancing! Look wise, they beat the Ninas, but the Ninas are gorgeous too and I think both are pretty equal.
Have you tried ebay for the Manolos?

@LuckyJuls: Yeah I feel the same way you do, that the 2 are kind of equal. No luck on ebay yet – these are called Clausado d’orsay and are selling at Nordstrom, and I think they’re a little too recent for that kind of lucky happening, but believe me when I say I am keeping an eye out! They are so beautiful! 🙂 Thanks for the input!

Oh my! I love those Menbur’s on your feet! I mean L.O.V.E.

I like them all, honestly. My shoes are blue as well 🙂

If the Manolos are out of reach, then I like the Glint ones the best!

I love Manolos but as they’re out of reach I like the Nina’s on your feet and the bling goes with your dress.
