As women we have this crazy need to shove our poor little feet into some pretty scary devices that I'm pretty sure were used to torture men in the early 1800's. It's become a ridiculous obsession, and although I'm all for the liberation of women's feet across the globe, these designer pumps are absolutely to die for, pain or not.
1. Lanvin Chain Detail Suede Pumps
Price: $1,245 at net-a-porter.com
These shoes are too rocker chic to pass up. Picture them paired with a hot little mini dress so you can actually see the chain detail, beautiful. Wear carefully though, that chain detail that we all know and love can get a little wearing on the ankles!
2. Christian Louboutin Lady Claude 120 Pumps
Price: $3,175 at net-a-porter.com
So when looking at these beautiful pumps from afar, they look like they're a snakeskin metallic pump. Nothing too special. But wait, take a closer look. It's not metallic snakeskin, it's a million tiny crystals. Gorgeous!
3. Alexander McQueen Heart Peep Toe Pumps
Price: $695 at net-a-porter.com
I absolutely adore the shape of the peep in this peep toe. Alexander McQueen has stunned me with such a small and playful spin on an old classic. I feel as though the very base of the toe may irritate your toes after a long period of time, but the shoe is still absolutely amazing.
