Manolo Blahnik Newcio Leather Pumps
It's really no secret that I have a soft spot for overpriced footwear. On the surface, it may seem like a weakness to be overcome. But, I'm also a pragmatist. Investing a high quality shoes is a smart decision, if done right.

One such smart decision is springing for a top quality classic point-toe pump, in a neutral color, with a work-sensible heel. They will last for years, even decades with the right care and upkeep. Your cost-per-wear will plummet and, in the long run, your splurge can end up costing less than a cheapie shoe that falls apart quickly or gets worn out fast. This kind of intelligent fashion math is why investment shoes always top the best seller lists at major department stores.

Case in point: this gorgeous, simple Manolo Blahnik Newcio point-toe pump is a current best seller at the Saks Fifth Avenue online store. Available in Black, Brown and Camel (shown), this refined pump is textbook shoe investment material. The leather lining and sole will stand the test of time, with proper care, and the covered 2.74" (70 mm) heel is work-appropriate while still being fashionable and elongating.

Wear the Manolo Blahnik Newcio with all of your workwear, from suits to shift dresses, then pair it with your Audrey-esque cocktail frocks during your off hours. Add a point-toe pump to skinny jeans, a slouchy tee and shrunken blazer and you'll suddenly have a bit of a downtown vibe from your investment shoes.
