Ladies, behave! That seemed to be the unspoken direction being doled out by sales staff at Manolo Blahnik’s midtown Manhattan boutique during its annual sale last week. The store was flooded with shoppers snapping up the iconic designer’s stilettos and pumps for a fraction of the price tag (they typically peak somewhere around the $1,000 mark). Some determined women tried fitting into stilettos a couple sizes too small, prompting sales staff to snap, “Don’t do that! Your feet are way too big. You’ll ruin them.” Others were a little more poised, including White Mountain co-owner Peter Fong, who was spotted browsing the offering and walking out of the shop with at least one pair of shoes.
