Manolo Blahnik RISA Yellow Pumps
I have had my eye on the Manolo Blahnik Risa for quite some time. As I browse the Blahnik selection, this shoe always calls to me. I love the bright yellow leather, the instant pop of color, and the classic half d’Orsay peep-toe with 110mm covered heel. I define luxury as impeccable attention to detail, and the angular piecing on the vamp is what makes this shoe special. A detail that could seemingly be overlooked, it brilliantly adds dimension to a shoe that requires a more bland backdrop to it’s vibrant hue.
At it’s retail price of $745, I wasn’t entirely tempted, but the Manolo Blahnik Risa on sale at CUSP for $499 is certainly a more enticing price-point. I was surprised to see the markdown at CUSP, a Neiman Marcus owned company. They aren’t on sale at Neimans yet, but I’m assuming we will be seeing their price drop there very soon too. CUSP also has several other discounted Manolo Blahnik shoes, however many of them are the same styles being sold with a higher 50% off discount at the Manolo Blahnik boutique semi-annual sale.
Where to Buy: Neiman Marcus, CUSP, and eBay
Sizing: Manolo Blahnik’s Risa half d’Orsay is cut true to size.
