Few shoe brands have built up a reputation for craftsmanship, timeless style, and overall decadence quite like Manolo Blahnik. Founded in 1971 by the Spanish designer of the same name, the brand has long been a favorite among the fashion set and beyond, showing up on TV shows (you know the one), in movies, and on celebrities ranging from Meghan Markle to Michelle Obama.
According to Net-a-Porter senior market editor Libby Page, the profound interest lies in the brand’s classic shapes, which appeal to consumers of all ages. “True to his DNA, Manolos are always impeccably made, often with [the designer’s] signature curved heel and strong, easily recognizable styles across all categories and heel heights,” she says.
For those reasons and more, Manolos have become the shoes of choice when it comes time to invest in a pair of truly beautiful heels. But with so many options, all of which are dangerously tempting, it can be a lofty undertaking to narrow down the choices to just one. In an effort to speed up the process and get you your dream shoes quicker, I had Page lay out the styles that Net-a-Porter is most excited about this season. Below, shop her picks for the best-of-all-time Manolo Blahniks, from the Hangisi to the Maysale.
