Feature Friday: Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Pumps

Feature Friday: Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Pumps

This post is inspired by my fitfam sister, Aramide. She was confused as to what shoes to pick between the Louboutin Iriza Glitter D’orsay pumps and Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps. If you know me well, i have a very soft spot for Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik follows very closely. But i’d almost always go with a Louboutin design.

Hangisi 70MM Satin Pumps

Taking away my sentiments and undying love for Christian Louboutin, i went with the Manolo Blahnik pumps. First was the heel height, they were a 70mm, Satin fabric and oh that buckle embellishment that makes it the hangisi pumps. It is an all time classic pair which is what Aramide was looking for.

It is also very versatile which means it can take you from day to night without being to much or too little. They are just the perfect pair. Reviews have also sworn that they are the most comfortable pair of luxury shoes you can own.

The Hangisi pumps have been around for many many years and i fell in love with them first in the Sex and the city movie when Carrie Bradshaw wore it to her court wedding with Big, i mean they are the shoes Big proposed with.

I had since then fantasized about being proposed to with a pair of shoes but my Nigerian lover won’t let me be great.

They come in a variety of yummy colors, heel heights and styles, and are an absolute favorite with any fashionista that collects luxury shoes.
