I can’t believe I am going to say this, but I need a new pair of classic black pumps. Yes, this girl who has a closet full of shoes is missing a really simple black heel that goes with everything. I am looking for a pump that is in the 3.5 inch range, any higher and for me it would not be basic, that would be for special occasions and when I do not need to walk anywhere. I would love suede, but my practical side says…no way they would be trashed in a nano second. I also love patent leather, but that might be more of a Summer shoe. I know, I am making this harder than it needs to be. Lets see what you think of these 5 classic black pumps, the main difference between them all, besides price, is the heel placement and the shape of the toe (pointy seems be back in style verses the round). I think it is important to splurge on a closet staple ( like this, this and this) but if you are looking for an alternative price range check out these classic styles.
