When it comes to making a black pump, only so many things can be adjusted: finish, heel height and girth, platform heigh, vamp line and embellishment. Christian Louboutin already has the sole game locked up, with other designers trailing behind him to find new ways to innovate from that angle. So what sets the Walter Steiger Curved Heel Pumps apart? Well, I think that’s obvious.
I am an enormous fan of this shoe and Steiger’s signature curvaceous heel in general, and it gives the standard black pump just enough of a twist to make it distinctive. What say you? Play our weekly game of Fill in the Blank or pick this shoe up at Barneys for $750.
