and if so, what does the label say? Like, Jimmy Choos say Jimmy Choo London - does MB put a city on his label?

I can ask my SIL tomorrow for you. Her sister buys them fopr her from the States.

Do you suspect you have fakes?

Ewe Tue 09-Sep-08 20:17:27

See here

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 20:18:59

no, I don't have any at all, fake or otherwise! - just idle chit chat! I always associate MB with NY (cos of SATC I guess) but he is Spanish - so just wondered.

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 20:20:05

oh there you go. Thankes Ewe. The man in clearly too international to be limited to one city lol

Megglevache Tue 09-Sep-08 20:22:24

Oh I would love to see a pair with Malcomo Blahneek and a smiley face on the label grin

I bought a pair of Timperlands in Nepal, took me days to even realise that the b was upside down

reminds me of a cd player dh & I went to buy years ago in gran canaria...
Wanted the one in the window but once inside the shop out came the SONI one..hmm. Tried to convince us that this was the spansih spelling hmmgrin. Yeah right..!

Got prada, dior,Jimmy choo & Gina shoes...but no MB..sad.

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 20:48:34

they need to be next on your list I think!

let's see if you get slammed for owning nice shoes. MNers are not very nice to people who own high-end stuff, it seems!

I say - Go girl!!

Megglevache Tue 09-Sep-08 21:02:11

Shhh which are th emost comfy/easiest to walk in. I am a shoe whore right now. grin

spicemonster Tue 09-Sep-08 21:04:36

I own three pairs blush

And no, they don't have the city on the label but I'm pretty sure they're genuine because I bought them in the MB shop

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 21:07:58

love it!

Okay, confession time from me: have one pair of Louboutins and 2 pairs of Jimmy Choos.

are any of you registered on Free registration and designer/ high end heaven

Megglevache Tue 09-Sep-08 21:10:02

You shoe hussey!

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 21:13:21

well, Meggles, what have you been buying? fess up!

spicemonster Tue 09-Sep-08 21:16:28

Why did you want to know if MB puts a city on the label though?

(lucky you - I really want a pair of louboutins)

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 21:20:05

honestly just idle curiousity. Louboutin says Paris, Choo says London. Just wondered where MB placed his allegiance, if at all, given that he is very New York but originally from Spain.

Megglevache Tue 09-Sep-08 21:26:24

No No No! I don't have the budget for such lovelies. grin

I bought myself some poor womens Vivienne Westwood shoes today (pics on profile)

But I love shoes. Love them!

shhhh Tue 09-Sep-08 21:39:26

tbh, its not me who lusts after designer shoes..yeah I do lurrvve them but would make do with a cheaper pair iykwim..can get more ! BUT its dh who is the one who suggests them..Guess im lucky to have such a kind dh grin.

IMO the most comfy ones are my gina flip flops...maybe because they are flat..I have a pair of prada wedge shoes which come a very close 2nd...very high and very me..Im not usually a stiletto gal so snapped up the prada wedges grin.

Hmm...imo, if you can afford something and will get use out of them then go for it. My parents & pil think dh & I are mad spending so much on shoes (dh is also a shoe whore..blush prob worse than me..) but thats just us...BUT don't get me wrong,I am just (if not more so) likely to buy a pair of £1 flip flops from Asda grin.

Must admit I would love a pair of louboutins....envy have asked dh for a pair when I have lost some goal grin.

shhhh Tue 09-Sep-08 21:42:11

mv, those are lovely grin. tbh I would wear something like that, a nice size heel iykiwm...

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 21:48:29

they're lovely Meggles!

and you have great legs and a gorgeous son!

have to say - my dh is a bit of a shoe weirdo ... quite happy for me to have expensive, high shoes since he finds them quite, errr, sexy.

LetThemEatCake Tue 09-Sep-08 21:48:54

but I wear flip flops and trainers for everyday, of course

shhhh Tue 09-Sep-08 21:50:24

I think most men are like that letthemeatcake wink. So I guess maybe we take advantage of them wink.grin

Megglevache Tue 09-Sep-08 21:50:38

No I don't that's the beauty. I have stubby odd legs and these shoes make them look quite long ish. grin
