I know you’re thinking these are just ANOTHER pair of studded pumps, but you’re wrong. Well, actually, no you’re not: you’re right, they ARE studded pumps. They’re not just ANY old pair of studded pumps, though, and if you take a closer look, you’ll see that each of the studs is topped with a tiny little crystal. That makes them TOTALLY different, right?
I’ve liked this look for a long time now, and think it’s an easy way to jazz up a pair of classic black pumps, and also to give a little bit of an edge to a more conservative outfit. Studded shoes always have a bit of a “tough” feel to them, but add that element to an otherwise very ladylike shape, and it’s much easier to pull off, even if it’s not your usual kind of style.
The crystal accents on the ends of these particular studs makes them as appropriate for evening wear as they are for daytime: gotta love a shoe that does double duty!
