so if you are a little bit a fashion victim like me, you already notice that pumps are all we want now. and this thing of presenting spring in winter makes me want to wear pumps already. I honestly don’t care about rain. maybe you that are reading are in another timezone or in another month and is spring? so pumps is a high heel shoe where the front of your toes are covered. there are round toe pump or square toe pumps. the reason they are called pumps is because they are closed toe shoes. but we are talking in slingback pumps. a slingback is a type of woman's footwear characterized by an ankle strap that crosses only around the back and sides of the ankle and heel.
according to vogue scandinavia “from forties pinup girls to billie eilish's internet-breaking vogue shoot, the slingback has grown into a wardrobe staple. on the topic of classic shoes that always manage to reinvent themselves, nothing comes close to the timeless slingback heel.” so this is a good investment, for sure.
the hottest and intemporal ones are chanel slingbacks, but that ones I reserve for the classic ones, or the ones that I like to keep simple with a classic twist. for example someone who loved our filomena earrings and necklace, or someone who is into the magda huggies in gold.
and then we have my favorites, the miu miu. “a classic style meets miu miu's rebellious soul in these brushed leather sling-backs.”, from miuccia prada house words.
and then prada designed this brushed leather slingback pumps proposing a complex, modern femininity with a contemporary feel. we don't need to ask for more. add a skirt, a t-shirt, pam earrings (link) and we are ready to go.
but we are not here to talk only about SUPER high budget options, lets go to see what other brands got to offer us. let’s talk about some highly recommended options, from high to low:
slingbacks will always be a safe choice to invest in, they can be now in high demand, but you can be sure that in future they will never be out of fashion!
