Just in the past few days we’ve seen at least 5 celebrities wearing Brian Atwood Maniac pumps on the red carpet.

The total for the year has to be well over 300 times that these soles have appeared at events.

Their popularity isn’t even localised in the US. Dannii Minogue has also been spotted wearing them on the X Factor and Victoria Beckham has been spotted wearing hers at Heathrow airport.

The Maniac Pumps have finally dethroned YSL Trib Too’s as the most popular shoe for celebs.

Why?

Well I don’t know for sure. My guesses are that the shoes are either very comfortable or celebs like the variety of colours the shoes and textures they come in.

Net-A-Porter International sell them in a lime green colour.
