A highly requested review – my favorite fancy shoe in my closet: the Manolo Blahnik Lurum. I figured since we’re in the holiday season and some are on sale at Saks, now’s as good a time as any.

*Disclaimer: unfortunately, preorders are not eligible for the discount. With that said, if you’ve been considering them, hopefully you find the below helpful. I don’t think it’s a purchase you would regret.

Manolo Blahnik Lurum Shoe Review

Let’s start with one question I often receive, something along the lines of:

“I’m looking to invest in a Manolo Blahnik heel and I’m debating between the Lurum and the Hangisi. Which one would you recommend?”

Obviously this is all completely subjective but if I was forced to pick, I’d pick the Lurum. I should add that in the Hangisi style, I own both the blush and yellow colors in the 105mm height and I love them. And in the Lurum style, I have the black. I asked myself, “Am I picking the Lurum because the black color goes with more?” and while it totally does, that’s not the only reason why. I love that the Lurum style has a slightly pointier front and looks a bit edgier than the Hangisi. I also find them to be the slightest bit more comfortable due to the lower heel. I do know that the Hangisi style does come in a lower 70mm heel, but I really prefer the look and the proportions of the 105mm. Personal preference!

I’m also fully aware that they’re a ridiculously expensive shoe but with time, they’ve proven to be a very worthwhile investment. They add the most beautiful touch to any outfit, whether it’s a pair of jeans or a simple little black dress.

And as I already mentioned, they’re pretty comfortable as far as heels go. I don’t know if one would be able to walk city blocks in them, but they’re slightly better than just being an “Uber shoe” which is basically what I call the footwear that requires complete door-to-door service and a night of minimal dancing. With the Lurum, I can walk, stand and dance for a good portion of the night.


They run very small. I wear a US 8.5 and normally take a 39 in most European shoes, including the Manolo Blahnik BB style. In the Hangisi, I take a 39.5 and in the Lurum, I take a 40. So in short, I went a full size up.

I know that the above makes it seem that I don’t love the Hangisi style, but I really do. This is me being forced to pick between the two styles, which is no ease feat.

Saks is currently having their Cyber Monday sale. Use code CYBER21SF at checkout (up to $500 in savings) to receive $50 off every $200 you spend. Some sale favorites include: this classic black Theory blazer, these Aquazzura heels, and the coats from SAM.

Thank you to Saks for partnering on this post. All opinions are my own.

    Hi Helena! I have found the Hangisi flat shoes on 50 % off and wonder if you have any flats from Manolo Blahnik? I ask because I don’t know which size I should go with and wonder if the Hangisi heel maybe has the same sizing as the flats. I am usually a size 36, but in my jimmy Choo suede heels I needed a size 35,5, so it’s a bit confusing…. Best regards, Johanna
