For Sale: Manolo Blahnik US 37.5 Classic Medium Brown Cognac Work Heels – $165 USD

I’m selling these Manolo Blahnik US 37.5 Classic Work Medium Brown Cognac Heels for $165 USD plus shipping charges.

If you want to buy them, contact me and I’ll take your address & tell you how much shipping will be to you.

I’ll also ship internationally (anywhere in the world).

  • Original Retail price: $695 before taxes
  • Gently worn — they’re in excellent condition
  • Made in Italy
  • Newly resoled ($50 value! They’re Vibram soles)
  • New heel taps put in to protect the pointy-tipped toe ($20 value!)
  • 100% gorgeous cognac brown leather
  • Heel Height: 2 3/4 in” (medium heel height, very comfortable to walk in)
  • Minor wear on the soles, and inside the heel (see photos below)
  • Dust bag is NOT included. I just put it there for the photo.

I’m selling them because I have too many shoes to wear! Something’s gotta give.

As side note on the brand: I own 3 other pairs of Blahniks, and I only wear Manolo Blahnik heels now because they are THE most comfortable shoes in the world.

I’ve tried the range from cheap fake plastic leather shoes to Aldo Shoes to Nine West (which were the most “prestigious” brands of shoe I wore before these).

The heel sits perfectly centered under your own heel, and the leather is firm but not too hard (unlike J. Crew or Ann Taylor pumps), and yet soft enough to give you a comfortable fit.

The heel is also high but modest enough for work (any higher than 3″ or as a platform is a little too hoochie-mama for work in my opinion) and most importantly they are low enough so you can walk around in these shoes for 8+ hours a day and not feel it.

The perfect balance, really.

Anyway, please ask any questions you have in the comments below or by contacting me.


No refunds or exchanges, I’m not a shop.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Boo, not my size or I would have snatched them up. Where in Toronto do you get your shoes resoled?

    I haven’t tried MBs yet so I’m glad you mentioned how comfy and good quality they are. I do agree about the heels at work. It is very difficult now to find heels in lower priced brands under 3″ that’s not a flat and the higher heels aren’t good for you and look totally like you’re going out to a club. When I first started my career 2″ to 2.5″ were more the standard. I do wear Stuart Weitzman and Prada makes a classic kitten heel that is really flattering but more importantly very short. I also have on my wishlist one black Ferragamo Vera (the classic bowed short stacked heel that’s been around forever, looks good with business attire and also leggings/skinny jeans). I don’t trust the resale market for those as there is a ton of fakes flying around.

    Good luck in selling!
    I used to add the bottom to shoes and it greatly extends the life, not just to the sole but it gives extra protection to the toe as the shoe then sits slightly higher from the pavement. It’s a great investment to do that.

      @Tania:

      Under 3″ is near impossible to find. Kitten heels are easy to walk in but they don’t look quite as nice as something in a moderate 2″ heel.

      I have heard good things about Ann Taylor and J. Crew but I am not convinced when I try them on in-store because they just don’t compare to MBs.

      Stuart Weitzman is good too, but Prada I found uncomfortable. Miu Miu wasn’t so bad if the heel was chunky…

      I always put soles on my shoes that I want to keep, which is why I put the soles on these ones.

      Thanks!

    Size 9-9.5 over here. My wallet is happy for that, after last month. Oy!

    I’ve been stalking eBay on and off hoping to find a cheap pair of Manolos, but no luck so far. Now I definitely want to try them to see how comfortable they are.

      @AdinaJ: Manolos are not that cheap on eBay sometimes. I’ve seen them up to $500 and then you have to factor in shipping, duties… 😐

    You have to let us all know if someone wants to buy.

    Sometimes feet change in pregnancy and never return to their pre-baby shape.

      Well it’ll show up on my income if someone does decide to snap them up!
