Can You Still Pull Off Pointy-Toe Pumps?

February 14th, 2008 No Comments


Good question Alyssa.

It’s true, the rounded toe is dominating the shoe market at the moment, but I wouldn’t discard the pointy toe pumps, they’re still being made by all of the major brands.  Keep them under a these conditions:

  1. Something is interesting about them.  Like this pair has a unique cut out, color, design.
  2. There must be some toe cleavage.  In other words, if you can’t see the bottom of your toes, they’re a no go.
  3. Patent is a savior. Keep the patent ones.
  4. You wear them to work because they’re so comfy (although I don’t think this is a legitimate reason, but some people don’t have the adoration for shoes I do).

Otherwise, if you’re looking for the basic work shoe, I would get some rounded toe shoes.  Steve Madden has rounded toe pumps in every height and color. If you’re wanting something a little bit more, try Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo (shown above) for a well-made basic.  I suggest getting patent leather because they are more durable and add a little shine to the most basic suit.
