Celebrities can’t stop wearing Manolo Blahnik’s Maysale heels

These days, it’s starting to feel like shoes – even of the high-priced, designer variety – go in and out of style faster than you can pay for them at Klarna. The trend cycle is moving faster and faster every season, making it increasingly difficult to decide which pairs to flaunt and which are better to skip or find a more affordable alt. As someone who bargains for a living, I run into this hurdle often, so I’ve come up with a foolproof solution. Simply put, your best bet is to invest only in designer shoes with lasting traction and the receipts to prove it. When I started thinking about which couples fit that description, one name in particular immediately came to mind: Maysale.

Manolo Blahnik’s most famous shoes were designed in 1991 when Isaac Mizrahi requested kitten heel mules with a “pilgrim buckle” from the Spanish shoe designer for an upcoming show. For more than 20 years, the Maysale, in its many iterations and colors, has been a tried and true favorite among the celebrity crowd thanks to its comfortable design and timeless aesthetic appeal. The original mules with a 50 millimeter heel and a soft suede exterior are especially praised, with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley recently sharing ways to style her tanned pair in multiple Instagram posts and Hailey Bieber opting a red version on trend for a press event in Rhode. New York City last summer. Moda Operandi’s Lauren Santo Domingo, Laura Harrier, Rosalía, Riley Keough and, most importantly, Mary-Kate Olsen, have all been seen in mules. The Row designer wore Bieber’s same red pair to an event back in 2019.
