Cardigan: Topshop | Shoes: Cole Haan
After months of searching, I have finally found my perfect match. When my eyes landed on a pair of grey, leather pumps from Cole Haan, I knew I had to try them on. The moment I tried them on, I knew that they were the most comfortable high heels I've ever tried on. Even as I tried different brands that same day, the comfort was unlike any other high heeled shoe I had ever worn. After years of being skeptical though, I left the store without buying them because I thought, it can't be! I returned a few days later though and I had the same experience; this time, they came home with me! Cole Haan currently carries two heights under their "heels" category: high (3-4 inches) and medium (2-3 inches) and they carry sizes 5-11. Some selections are also offered in wider widths.
The Eliza Grand Pumps have achilles padding and a flex-molded leather outsole that creates that broken-in comfort that you feel. These are definitely great if you are looking for a heel that will take you through the 9-5 day at the office or if you are running through the streets of NYC like Carrie Bradshaw.
Also for petites...Nine West offers smaller sizes, beginning at size 5. Another great place to shop for classic pumps is Ann Taylor. They carry sizes 6 and up in their stores but carry size 5 and up online. I have linked a few of my current favourites below. What are your favourite pumps? Do you ever buy shoes online?
