Best Pumps

When pumps became fashionable in the 17th century, they were worn exclusively by men. The lackeys at the court of the French king wore pumps to knee breeches. When the French Revolution upset everything, it also had an effect on fashion. The pumps lost their high heels and were later forgotten. Towards the end of the 19th century, the comfortable shoe shape was rediscovered for both men’s and women’s fashion. At that time the ladies wore in public mostly high-necked bootees, which were not very comfortable. In this respect, the enthusiasm for the newly emerging pumps is very understandable.

Women’s fashion: Pumps Video Guide

Pumps are undoubtedly among the classics in women’s shoe fashion. If you take a closer look at fashion shows or in shoe shops, it soon becomes clear that these timeless women’s shoes are among the fashion designers’ favourite children. Traditionally, pumps are widely cut low shoes which, however, firmly enclose the foot and have no closure. The wide neckline of the shoe ensures that the instep is exposed and the leg looks longer. Women appreciate this effect, because beautiful legs can be perfectly set in scene with pumps.

Classic or sexy – chic pumps for many occasionsToday there is probably no woman who does not own several pairs of pumps. The designers always have ideas. They work with different materials, vary the height and thickness of the heels, play with the fashion colours and decorate the pumps with seams, glitter stones, flowers or buckles. In the meantime, the variety has grown so great that the pumps are already divided into groups that have been given their own names. High heels look especially sexy. This is how pumps with a heel height of more than 10 centimeters are called. Stilettos, which are also colloquially called Stöckel shoes, came up in the 1950s and are still worn today on special occasions. The special features are the tapered toe and the high spiked heel. The designers are no longer as strict about the definition of pumps as they are today. That’s why you can also find sling pumps under the keyword pumps, which are closed with a strap and release the heel. Such models are particularly popular in summer or on festive occasions. Peeptoes are pumps in which there is a small neckline at the tip of the shoe through which the tips of the toes can be guessed. With high front pumps, on the other hand, the characteristic cutout is missing. The instep of these models is largely covered. The perfect complement for every outfitSchick garments only really come to the fore when they are completed with the matching shoes. Every fashion-conscious lady knows that. Pumps are ideal in this respect because they can be worn on a wide variety of occasions. If there are several pumps on the shoe shelf in muted colours and with different heel variations, playing with fashion is fun in the first place. Black pumps go perfectly with a classic cut trouser suit or a business suit. You can wear white strap pumps with light skirts in light colours or airy summer dresses or you can match the shoe colour with the basic colour of the outerwear. This will undoubtedly prove that you are style and fashion conscious.
