Possible New Pump

Hi Ladies,

Working through my wardrobe for our coming Winter, and keeping in mind my new job, I find that I don't 'need' for very much... which is good.  However one wardrobe hole I have felt I have had for a while is for a pointy toe black pump.  This would be worn particularly as a work shoe, with my straight leg and wider leg more corporate pants.  

The problem in finding these has been that many of the pumps have a stiletto or kitten heel. which just doesn't gel with my style.

Today I found these on line.  They are Wittner shoes, leather, and I seem to fit my criteria.  The block heel makes them much more 'me'.

What do you think.  I know they are a little more conservative than my norm but I think the would work.

BTW, I am not a big 'shoe" wearer in Winter as I prefer boots but there have been times when occasions have called for a pump and it just hasn't been there :(

Thanks for taking a look.
xxx Deborah

    I think these would work with your clothes and style well. I like the juxtaposition of the delicate, feminine toe with the chunky, strong heel.

    I think they would work really well for you, Deborah. I like those shoes!

    I like them a lot.  Great find.

    Wohoo!  Thanks ladies.  The more I think about them, the more I can see them working with more than just my tailored pants.  I ordered them!!

    I think they will work nicely with your style. I like the toe, the squared heel and the texture of the leather.

    Great find...did you think of going on "Shoes of Prey" and designing your own??

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Dakotacheryl, I have a pair of shoes from Shoes of Prey:) #1! I would love to do it again but it's not cheap. Might have to save my pennies;)

    LOVE the red patent pumps !!

    I really like the look of those for your style Deborah - go for it!

    I really like them for you, Deborah! I like the substantial heel -- I think it is distinctive and has that arty quality that defies trend. 

    This reminds me -- I was looking at the shoes pictured below. I sometimes think I could use a pair of dressier "pumps" and these appealed to me and look pretty walkable.

    Late to the party, but it's a great looking shoe and you're right, the block heel does make it more "you".  I've been eyeing up some shoes from this Etsy seller...they might suit you.

    These are exciting. And I think they'll be beautiful with your style. Can't wait to see them in action. Great find.
