When Big proposed to Carrie with the Manolo Blahnik Hangisi satin pumps in cobalt blue, it was a given that the pair would make fashion history, the stilettos, not Carrie and Big…although one half of the duo is undoubtedly a fashion icon. In the movie, the pumps were priced at 500 odd dollars…cut to 8 years later and the Manolos are as popular as the day the movie released, but with a steeper price tag of $960. Also, they’ve been seen in more than 40 colors, textures, and prints.
It’s obvious that a pair of shoes as popular as the Hangisi satin pumps would be replicated/copied eventually. And so, here we are. Sample the three colors we found floating on the interwebs.While the original are made with satin uppers as the name suggests, the copies are made with synthetic material that has a velvet finish. No need to to point out the obvious difference in heel structure with one being a stiletto and the other sporting a kitten heel. The price difference however is staggering…one would have to shell out a 100 times more for the originals!
Very iconic shoes…hard to fake even with exact replicas! Given the price points though, would you go for the copies?
