Manolo Blahnik - a colorful figure in the fashion world

Shoes are my weakness. I don't like ordinary shoes, even the most ordinary ones must have this "something". I also love completely classic shoes that go with everything. I love high heels, but I don't love to wear them. Shoes inspire me, especially those from the top shelf, which are not only beautiful, but also very often well-shaped and comfortable. I have a great weakness for Chanel and Manolo Blahnik shoes. Today's post I devote to Manolo, who is an extremely colorful figure in the fashion world.

Manolo Blahnik - a character who changed my perception of shoes

The first Manolo model I fell in love with was the Hangisi model, i.e. classic, satin heels decorated with a buckle with Swarovski crystals. You can associate this model with the movie 'Sex and the City'. I fell in love with them when I first saw them in one of the styles of my favorite actress Sophia Bush. This model has long been on my mind. Manolo, however, are not only classic models like Hangisi or the beautiful Contina decorated with a bow, but also crazier models such as Remol boots or Josef boots, which I personally associate with a coral reef.

In addition to high heels, classic pumps or boots, in the Manolo collections you will also find flat shoes in an elegant edition. Manolo is one of the few who struggle with the stereotype that flat footwear is not very feminine and sexy. Most simply don't know how to design them to meet women's tastes.

Ever since I watched a document about Manolo on Netflix (here you can see the trailer), I have even more respect for this artist. He is a huge artist and virtuoso. He expresses this not only in his way of life, but also in his original projects. What inspires Manolo? Garden, architecture or everyday life. This man can draw inspiration from every aspect of his life.

There are no Manolo shoes in my wardrobe (Chanel Slingback beige and black are on the top of the list), but the classic Contina model is extremely handsome and very much in my style. For me, when choosing shoes, their originality is extremely important, and at the same time classic and comfort, of course. And apparently Manolo shoes are very comfortable (unfortunately I can't confirm it).

Manolo's career, or how to start designing shoes

Manolo knew what he would like to do in life. From an early age he was attracted to shoes and as a small child he made shoes for lizards (apparently it was easy to catch them) from candy wrappers. This extremely energetic and colorful character like any artist - to live, he must create.

Years ago I was drawn to clothes design. I often have trouble finding what I really want in stores. And once I find it, it's usually too wide for me. I am very much thinking about returning to the design and sewing of dressmakers clothes. This is supposedly more profitable than buying clothes for lack of sealing wax. And what is the satisfaction when you can dazzle guests with your design dress instead of a dress bought in a store.

With shoes, I think that this is a more complex process, because you need to balance them so that they are comfortable. For me it's a driving school, that's why I admire Manolo not only for the design, but also for the comfort that many women around the world praise.

Scholl Gel Activ insoles

The Scholl company has recently amazed me with its ideas. First electric foot file, and then compression tightsthat work great with me (I have another pair of black 60 den tights - this version has already appeared in Rossmann. If you haven't used them yet, now is the opportunity. What's better in Rossmann in Sopot I've seen both versions - thin and thicker. Probably thin were still from the spring and summer period).

This time I bought GelActiv insoles for everyday footwear (there is also a version for sports footwear). My feet are very sensitive, circulation problems occur mainly when I wear ballerina-like shoes.
There are models in which I feel great and I can fly for hours and do my business, and there are those in which after a few hours my fingers begin to take cramps. I don't know where it comes from, doctors don't know much either. I noticed that this is due to too flat shoes - mine can not be completely flat, but they must have a slight increase.

That's why I decided to buy GelActiv insoles. I have one ballerina with a cat theme (I've shown them several times on Instagram), which I love, but the sole has already become flat and after a few hours my legs hurt and I get cramps.

You don't have to worry about the length of the inserts - they are cut to the right size according to the drawn lines.

Thanks to these inserts I can walk in them all day! GelActiv inserts absorb shocks, making walking comfort much better. Legs don't get tired so much.

This is another Scholl product that I can recommend to you.
