Iconic, sensual, timeless: pumps have been among the most loved shoes for generations. Not for comfort you know, but for their allure so chic that it goes well with everything, from casual jeans to the most elegant dress.
A shoe that walks through time, through the decades, through the collections, treading the streets, red carpets and catwalks with style and elegance. Immortal and beautiful they have entered everyone's imagination not only thanks to the catwalks but above all thanks to the small and big screen: how can we forget the blue satin pumps with jeweled buckle by Manolo Blahnik received as an "engagement ring" by Carrie from Mr Big?
Entering the women's wardrobe only at the end of the Eighteenth century, they are distinguished by their iconic shape, which enhances the instep leaving it uncovered. The heels, materials, colors and tips are instead revisited according to fashions and trends even if the black, red or nude leather version with stiletto heel and tapered toe will never really tire us.
A cult that, as we have anticipated, has crossed the history of fashion, from its very distant birth in Ancient Egypt worn by the king's knights with a very rigid sole and a different silhouette from the one we know today to the more famous versions worn by the great Hollywood divas during the golden age up to the very famous two-tone model with low and wide heel invented by the great Coco Chanel.
And then again the 70s with the glam of disco music, wedges, very high and very wide heels and pumps with exaggerated plateaus to then return in the 80s to the essence of this shoe: tapered toe, stiletto heel, quality materials and workmanship.
Today fashion plays with shapes, lighting up colors with strong tones and leaving us free to choose from many different models. From classic pointy pumps with stiletto heels, to stilettos (straight heels) up to sculpture heels.
If the heights do not exceed 5 centimeters we speak of kitten heels, while if they have a strap on the back of the foot the model is that of the Mary Jane. The decollete are then open toe if they have an open toe or slingback if they leave the heel uncovered.
