Sex and the City 2: the Shoes

Carrie Bradshaw is having an affair with a new man in "Sex and the City 2". He’s an unspoken lover showing up in scene after scene, but he’s there, and he ousted what was a major character in the TV series and the first film. Nary a word is mentioned of this silent new man; he just flashes his red soles. Yes, Bradshaw seems to have dumped Manolo Blahnik for Christian Louboutin.

Could it be because of Blahnik’s distaste for the fame his shoes found on the series? Last year, he told the Sunday Telegraph, “If people talk to me about Sex and the City, I get sick ... It becomes too much and I don’t feel comfortable.”

Even more, the Something Blue royal blue pumps with a crystal buckle that played a starring role in "Sex and the City: The Movie", may have saved the company last year. “We had a very good year last year, thanks to those stupid satin shoes,” he told the Sunday Telegraph. “That shoe saved our company.” Clocking in at $895 and seen in Bradshaw and Big’s home together and on her feet at her wedding, the shoes have been a best seller at the Manolo Blahnik boutique at Wynn Las Vegas.

In the new film, Bradshaw dons the Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels, the Gino T-strap, Studio 120 peep-toes and even a pair of lace booties with the Christian Dior newsprint dress, the same she wore in season three, episode 47, while confronting Big's ex-wife Natasha.

Manolo Blahnik has been such a big character on the show. In season four, episode 17, Bradshaw finds herself in the Vogue closet. “Oh my God! Do you know what these are? Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes! I thought these were an urban shoe myth!”

In season six, episode nine, Bradshaw’s $485 Manolo Blahniks are stolen at a baby shower where the hostess insists everyone removes their shoes. She even goes so far as to register herself at Manolo Blahnik in recognition of her just-announced marriage to herself. The only item that she registers for is a single pair of the missing $485 shoes.

When Bradshaw’s rent-controlled apartment goes condo in season four, episode 16, she doesn’t have a down payment to buy it. ”I've spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!”

So maybe after her love affair with Manolo Blahnik, it’s time for Bradshaw to move on to a new man. Here’s a look at some of the shoes in "Sex and the City 2" and where you can find them in Las Vegas. As Bradshaw likes to say: “Sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.”
