Imagine if, upon visiting the shoe floor at Barneys New York, your friendly sales associate was none other than Manolo Blahnik. (We can dream, can’t we?) Mr. Blahnik may not be making the move to New York anytime soon, but he certainly can offer some valuable advice for that moment when you’re standing in front of the Manolo Blahnik display, paralyzed with indecision.
We reached out to the shoe legend himself to find out which pairs every woman absolutely needs this season. Really, doesn’t he know best? Happy shopping!

“This pump is a classic with a twist—our BB done in pony with polka dots. I adore polka dots!”
“The Cintuntahi is a fantastic winter boot. Comfortable and sturdy. Perfect for running around in the countryside on the weekend or in the city!”
“I love tartan! The Marzia is a fun take on my classic Mary Jane.”
“The Totitamary is a flat version of the Mary Jane. Simple and chic. I love the contrast between the leather and the patent toe.”
“The Hangisi is a classic of ours. It comes in many colors, but I think the black is particularly elegant, especially for the evening parties in the festive season.”
“A good, basic high-heeled Chelsea boot, the Tungade is great for everyday wear. Very flattering.”
