Ten Classic pumps under $100.

There’s one style that absolutely every woman, shoe-lover or not, must have in her closet: a classic pump. Since a classic pump is the go-to shoe, sticking to neutrals is your best bet; the most practical color for a classic pump is black. But once you have a pair or two of those, feel free to branch into brights! 
Although it seens classic pumps would be easy to find since they’re always in style, it can get tricky to locate the perfect pair. There’s a lot to consider: material, heel height, brand, vamp and heel shape, color, and price. It took me a long time to find the perfect black pumps, so I created a handy list of some great classic styles all under $100 to help other shoe-lovers out there. I’m a suede-addict so my first instinct was to find those, but I also made sure to include pairs made of other materials.

B-Brian-Atwood-Franciska

Double-Take: B Brian Atwood Franciska

 B Brian Atwood Franciska

The only B by Brian Atwood shoe I’ve tried on was a pair of Bambola peep-toe pumps. And despite the seemingly uncomfortable height, the shoes were probably one of the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever had on my feet. I’m sure the Franciska fits just as well. Brian Atwood is one of those shoe designers who believes a shoe should be as comfortable as it is beautiful. His collections are known for their exceptional craftsmanship and bold color combinations. Although many of the shoes in his collections are tastefully designed with platforms, there are several beautiful single sole designs as well. The B by Brian Atwood collection is the lower-priced contemporary line, but still a bit pricey. However, there are double-takes out there!

I haven’t tried this particular pair, but Enzo Angiolini shoes are generally very good quality and will last you a while for a lot less than the designer pair. There has been quite an upsurge in stylish shoes from this brand, which you can find at several department stores as well as off-price retailers like TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Nordstrom Rack. I’ve been eying a few pairs lately, we’ll see what happens!
