A great pump always makes any outfit look sharp and sophisticated. I love these by Kurt Geiger for the slim profile, needle-thin heel, and low vamp. The Ellen reminds me of these gorgeous but elusive Sergio Rossi pumps at DSW. Although I already have a beautiful pair of classic black pumps from Vince Camuto, these are begging to join the others in my closet…I’ll be keeping an eye on the price!
Finding the perfect black pumps that go with everything is probably the hardest thing to do. For a while, I thought I was being too specific with what I wanted: straight heel, black suede, pointy toe with a hint of toe cleavage, and a walkable heel height. Ideally, I’d love a pair of Manolo Blahnik BB pumps. But alas, they don’t fit in my budget, so I had to look for something else. It took me quite some time (probably about a year!) to find a pair that had everything I was looking for and wouldn’t break the bank. I finally found this pair online. I debated purchasing them for a couple weeks. When I got an email with a 25% off discount code, I took the plunge and bought them. I’m so glad I did, because they ended up being exactly what I was looking for!
The Kain pump from Vince Camuto has a beautiful shape with a perfectly straight 4″ heel and a pointed toe that doesn’t squeeze. I did have to insert ball-of-foot cushions because the single sole is pretty thin, but after I did that, they’re extremely comfortable for a day at the office. The quality is great, and if I could, I’d get the style in many other colors as well!
