Mini Skirt Monday #145: Pumps



For those who care...
Pumps are one of the most popular styles of women's shoes, and they're also one of the most difficult to define. In their most basic form, pumps have closed backs, and low-cut fronts that hit closer to the toes than they do the top of the foot. A classic pump has a seamless vamp, and is without laces, buckles, straps or ties, but it's very common to see the classic pump silhouette enhanced by an ankle strap, t-strap, or mary jane strap. Pumps can have open toes, peep toes, pointy toes, round toes, almond toes or square toes, and they can have heels of any height.

Note that some of these may not quite qualify as "pumps", but going with a "heels" theme would open it up to sandals, loafers, platforms, etc.  And we wouldn't want that, would we? No, sir.

    1. Pancake Detecting Powers are sharp with this one. But be wary or you will begin to see pancakes where there are none. "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar" - Freud.

    1. I want to say that's from a Silver Rose catalog. I offered the whole catalog for download a while back, but Rapidshare put the kibosh on that.

  5. Former girlfriend: You know high heels are just a tool of a male-dominated society to make women more attractive, right?

    Me: Hey, baby, I don't make the rules...

    1. Reminds me of a classic scene in Every Which Way but Loose. Philo (Eastwood) hits on a girl in a country-western bar, to which he gets a long feminist lecture in return. His response: "Why are you so angry?"

    2. From THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS?

    3. That is Joey Heatherton (and husband Lance Rentzel, WR for the Cowboys and Rams).

      @Paul - not from Sugarland Express; this is later (like Bird on a Wire later)

  8. Pumps and minis; a combination in the 70s that was both rewarding and frustrating at the same time while I was in school. I'm sure that many of my former teachers could probably still pull off the combination today.
