Walk the Talk

I’ve mentioned a number of times that I cut down a pair of Manolo Blahnik Pascalare boots, but realized that I’ve never posted on them. Funny how a small tweak took them from the back of my closet to being my favorites. They look great scrunched down, too. à la the Totême Fall 2018 show.

  • They look good! I have those boots and like to scrunch them down at my ankles with jeans! I don’t have the courage to cut them off.

  • I have been thinking of cutting a few of my heels down as well, but never took the plunge. This finally pushed me over the edge! Your boots are fabulous!

  • Heels can be tricky. If you take them down too much the toe turns up.

  • Well I did such a good job of cutting down my boots like this that someone else (daughter) shopped my closet! Ah the joys.

  • In the previous post I thought you meant shortening the heels, not cutting down the shaft. Both pairs looks awesome. I personally not a huge fan of scrunched look, my Isabel Marant’s naturally softened and gets scrunched down and I constantly try to fix it up. Maybe I should embrace the cool girl attitude and let it stay scrunched down.

  • I am constantly cutting down heels on my shoes, especially as I have “aged” and I live in a cit full of cobblestones. Just had a pair of Manolo gold evening shoes cut down . You need to go to a good shoemaker. As the woman explained to me its the pitch of the shoe that makes the difference on how much you can cut down.

  • Would you recommend a shoemaker in nyc area to cut boots down? Did you insert a piece of elastic at the top or simply use a zig zag stitch?

  • The Leather Spa in NYC is great. No elastic at the top.
