The pump is one of the most classic and flattering shoes on the market for women. The high heel elevates us and adds height while giving the appearance of a slimmer figure; love that! Every season designers show versions of the pump, adding to the fact that the shoe style is a classic. For spring 2012 the pump gets bright and is shown with both a pointed toe and round. In addition to going bright this spring, pumps are being shown with both flat soles and platforms; giving consumers a wide variety of heights to choose from.
While many shoe styles this season are complicated and artsy, the pump is being shown in either solid colors or color blocking. The solid colored pump is proving to be the most popular among consumers as the style flies off store shelves in a variety of hues. Solid colored pumps are being shown in the color of the season, orange, as well as bright pink, cobalt blue, bright green, canary yellow and even in neon hues.
One of the fabulous things about the solid colored bright pump is that it is an easy way to update one’s wardrobe. Instead of buying a wide variety of clothing in bright colors for spring, a Fashionista can easily add a pair of bright pumps to an otherwise neutral ensemble and voila! She is instantly on-trend for spring with a bright and bold color.
Thankfully there are no rules when it comes to heel height or sole. Bright pumps are hot in two inch heels as well as five inch. Platforms and flat soles are the choice of the Fashionista, and there is no wrong answer. Our feet are thankful for this trend J
