Made-to-Order Manolo Blahniks

Manolo Blahnik BB heel ($595).
The search for the perfect high heel is seemingly endless—that is, unless you're hip to the new Made-to-Order BB Boutique, a Manolo Blahnik exclusive at Neiman Marcus. The three-step, custom shoe experience revolves around the 1950s-style BB heel (named after Brigitte Bardot), which was designed by Blahnik to be worn "anytime, anywhere, in any color and any material." While the Made-to-Order BB Boutique is available online, we highly recommend setting up an appointment at a local Neiman Marcus. Start by choosing from five heel heights (from 2” to 4.5”), then opt for one of 20 different colors and materials (leather, satin, suede, patent leather). Six weeks later, the custom shoes are delivered straight from Mr. Blahnik's factory in Italy to your doorstep. As they say, if the shoe fits, buy a pair in every color. 9700 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour, 305-865-6161
