The Essential Black Statement Pump

The black pump is a classic. A must have. The most versatile shoe in a woman’s collection.  The black pump can be worn year round, night or day, for work or play, from the office to the club and whatever the setting will always exemplify that you mean business. But how about a black pump that makes a bolder statement?? What about a shoe that enters a room like BOOM and purrs like Eartha Kitt (cuz its also sexy) and says “All eyes on me. I mean business, I am the business, mess around with me and I will give you the business!”? Yeah, every woman needs that shoe. The essential black statement pump.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Saint Laurent Opyum 110 Heel

I recently was able to purchase these from a website that I found online called Tessabit.com. Lucky for me they had one pair left that happened to be my size and I was able to purchase these babies for 65% off! These gorgeous gems are absolutely stunning. The logo heel was a fantastic design idea. It comes in a shorter heel as well, the 85mm heel.  I have the patent leather version with the chrome logo heel. Check out my review on my channel: https://youtu.be/kABMlxb-gEE.

The YSL Opyum comes in leather or patent leather. The logo heel comes in chrome, bronze, black, and most recently blue. There is also a sandal, a bootie and they just came out with a super dope sling back that is to die for!!

Christian Louboutin So Kate

Nothing says money moves like a red bottom. The So Kate is a classic. The silhouette of this shoe is just sexy, but be careful with sizing, getting the wrong size could be crucial. Always go up a size with Louboutins. Only available in 120mm heel, the So Kate pump has the steepest pitch and the most severe pointed toe.

Christian Louboutin Pegalles Follies 100mm or 120mm

The Pigalle Folles design is a combination of the Pigalle ( which has a thicker heel) , and the So Kate. This design comes in a wide selection of heel heights. Said to be a bit more comfortable than the So Kate with a cushioned insole, the toe box is shorter than the So Kate, but the heel is still narrow and tapered. I put this on the list for those who cant deal with the high pitch in the So Kate but still want that sexy silhouette.

Valentino Garavani RockStud Ankle Strap Pump

Another timeless classic. Both equal parts elegant and edgy. Comes in a kitten heel or the 100mm/4” heel.  One of my favorite pairs of shoes. I have these in black patent leather with the nude strap. They are one of the many treasures that I have scored at Nordstrom Rack. I remember dreaming of owning a pair but couldn’t stomach the hefty price tag. One day I just happened to be on the hunt in the shoe department, not sure what I would find, and came across these beauties for over 70% off. I think I cried a little bit.

Gucci Suede Web Mary Jane Pump

I love these!  Suede, Gucci, pointed toe pump with a 4” heel and the strap is removeable!

Schutz Quereda

This sexy, pointy toe, high heel mule has been seen all over the blogs and on celebs like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Katy Perry. The Quereda comes in several different colors and materials. The OOTD options are limitless with these!

Tamara Mellon Linger Suede Ankle Boot

These are hot! Tamara calls it a boot but it is also listed as a pump. Either way, I’ll take it! The skin baring cut outs make this shoe so sexy and there is just something about suede. These are perfect for Fall.

Balenciaga Black Knife Pumps

Now these might not be for everyone but they are SO DOPE!! These got my attention at the beginning of the year when I saw Meghan Markle in a red pair. Most recently Nicki Minaj posted a picture that sparked a frenzy of every one of her followers  trying to find out who, what, where and how do I find them. Not only do these  demand attention but the price tag makes a huge statement as well!
