To celebrate comme il faut Manolo Blahnik’s 50th anniversary, the luxury shoe designer released a capsule collection called “Our Golden Year“. Certainly, and as one would expect, each pair of the anniversary collection is as luxurious as a jewel. Since 1971, the London-based shoe label has made such fabulous pumps that Carrie Bradshaw preferred to buy their dreamy heels instead of paying her rent in Sex And The City!

Our Golden Year collection
Manolo Blahnik is known for making the most comfortable high-heeled shoes, thus becoming the number one choice for red-carpet events, and his 50th-anniversary collection is no different. Although the models look absolutely glamorous, you can walk in them. So, read Our answer to Christian Louboutin and feminists to know more about heels and comfort.

The fabulous Our Golden Year models come with a gold disc on their soles and in limited-edition packaging. In addition, Blahnik revisited the label’s classics like the iconic Hangisi, Lurum, and Mariamu. As a result, they now feature gold mesh or lace and crystal embellishments fit for a queen to mark the 50th anniversary of the house. Additionally, there’s a gold leather and lace macramé mini handbag to complete the celebratory collection.
High-heeled and also flat models from Manolo Blahnik’s anniversary collection feature a bell motif adornment. You can wear your shoes either with a satin ankle strap or this delicate bell charm strap inspired by the charm bracelet Blahnik’s mother used to wear during his childhood. Furthermore, the press release explains that “the unique detailing offers a joyous sensory experience as the wearer walks.”
Finally, if you want something special but not gold, here are some other dreamy shoes you can choose from Manolo Blahnik. Our editors select independently all products featured on Notorious-mag. However, when you buy through our links, we may get a commission.
