Inside the mind of Manolo Blahnik, the king of shoes

Sep 14, 2017
The life of the designer and the creation of his eponymous luxury shoe brand is the subject of a new documentary, "Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards."
“The only time I ever really see Manolo truly, truly happy and contented is when he's in the factory sculpting the last of a new shoe or playing with the shape of a new heel,” says Michael Roberts. Above, a picture of Manolo Blahnik.
