Where Anna Wintour leads, we follow. We take heed of whatever she declares her favorite or least favorite trends, so you better believe we're all ears when she reveals her favorite shoe brand: Manolo Blahnik.

In a documentary about Blahnik called Manolo: the Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards, Wintour makes a bold claim about her love for the Spanish designer: "I can't remember the last time I wore anybody else's shoes—I mean, I just don't even look at them," she says in the film. Considering she has access to every designer under the sun, it's certainly a strong statement.

Remember those nude sandals Wintour has worn since 2011? Yep, they are by Manolo Blahnik, of course. So if you're looking for your next shoe investment, you might want to consider following Wintour's lead. Scroll down to watch Anna Wintour in the trailer for the Manolo Blahnik documentary, and keep reading to shop our picks.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Associate Director, Fashion News

I got my start as a Who What Wear intern eleven years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (We've since increased that number twentyfold.) I graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how I ended up moving to Los Angeles from my hometown of San Diego. In college, I also interned at Refinery29, where I was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, I came back to WWW in 2016, where I currently hold the title of Associate Director, Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royals expert—in case you haven't noticed my numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). I spend my days trying to incorporate my idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, I love tennis, dogs, classic rock, and traveling.
