The Perfect Nude Pump


1. Christian Louboutin Double Platform Pump $775
2. Giuseppe Zanotti
Nude Patent Court shoes $342 (sale)
3. Joan and David
Flipp Pumps $200
4. Stuart Weitzman Platswoon Pump $298
5. Charles David Jocelyn Peep Toe Platform Pump $274.95
6. BCBGeneration Tinas Platform Pump $98.95

I've been searching for the perfect pair of nude pumps for at least a few years now. So when Marcie from Lemons and Laundry tagged me for Shoe Love, it couldn't have come at a better time. Thanks Marcie! I decided to incorporate my obsession with nude pumps into the tag. Maybe I'm too particular or maybe they don't exist, but I've struggled to find my ideal pair for way too long. The ideal pair for me would be a pale nude (similar to #2) with a platform (#1) in a soft leather (not patent, why are all nude pumps patent??) possibly with a peep toe (although not a prerequisite). Has anyone seen these anywhere? The Charles David shoe looks like the closest match to what I want. I'm tagging anyone/everyone who wants to participate and post their list of current shoe favorites. What shoes are you obsessing over right now?

Very true about the patent - my nude pumps are patent! It's such a hard shoe to find - great choices though :)

several months ago I bought Stuart Weitzman nude platform pumps (similar to #4) and love them! I just got a cute skinny belt from JCREW to go with them.

You know I love those CL's. They're gorgeous. I got some peep-toe nude heels earlier this year at Nine West, and love them! Nude goes with everything and make your legs look so much longer.

Erica said...

Love nude pumps! Check out my blog today and you will see shoes that I am currently obsessing over. Way over my budget, but still obsessed. ; )

Lindsay said...

the bcbg ones are my fav! :)

Torrie said...

...still obsessing over your cute wedges:).

Same Sweet Girl: Memoir of a Southern Belle said...

I've been searching for a great nude pump myself!!! Of course the CL's are my favorite...but I would have to settle for something cheaper! ;)

Sandy a la Mode said...

ive wanted the nude pumps from target for the longest time but they are sold out in my size, sad! so i went to off broadway shoes the other day and found a pair of nude pumps - they are a little tall but i NEED nude pumps so i got them and couldn't be happier! these are all great finds here as well!

California Wife said...

I'll take #1 please! You found some great choices!

hiking in stilettos said...

Without even looking at the brands below, I instantly chose No. 1 as my favorite! Haha, of course. :)

Marcie said...

I love that you covered all price points, Val! These are such great picks, and I too am dying for a nude pump. I have to say that #1 is my favorite! Hope you get a pair soon :)

I need to save this post as I’ve had the hardest time finding a cute pair of nude pumps. I don’t want them too high or too low. The BCBG Generation pumps look perfect (though I’d love to have one of the more expensive pairs ;)

SogniSorrisi said...

I need a good pair of nude pumps, too.

hiyaluv said...

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

2 and 5 are my faves... I wanted a nude pump for a while but that obsession has taken a back seat because I could never find one. great picks here!

Kristin said...

Oh those fabulous Loubs...If only!

Vans said...

Lol I have to go for numero UNO. Pretty stuffs

Shannon King said...

I've been searching for the perfect nude pump for... forever now! xx

Gabriel said...

I'm a little bit scared by the fact that I was able to pick out the Louboutins without the reference. Redvines for breakfast is taking over!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

It is a tough thing to find. I've been looking for the perfect pair for a while too and I've been eyeing the Loubs but not that crazy about patent in a closed shoe. I'm leaning more towards the YSL tributes but that's a whole other story all together :)

Good luck sweetie!

this free bird said...

ohhhh these are beauties! i've gotta tell you i'm feeling very proud of myself. i went for #3 and it is semi in my price range!

thanks for posting val. going to dig nickels out of the chef's pockets and see what i can come up with!

Nikki said...

Try the Fawson pump from Aldo...it's perfection! I have them in nude suede.

Xx

Lisa Griffin said...

Alison said...

what i wouldn't do for those CL's. i've been lusting over them for sooo long. too bad they won't fit into my budget for another 20 years.

Krystal said...

I'm looking for the perfect pair too!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Ah, I want the Louboutin's!

I'm actually obsessed with all things Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent when it comes to footwear. She has the most decadent designs!! :)

Melanie said...

I got mine from Target. They are absolutely perfect. Says they're available in store...good luck, lady!

Jen Watts said...

I have been on the lookout for the perfect nude patent pump too...I'm 5'11" so I prefer a 2 inch heel and its so hard to find. I found a pair of Cole Haans and ordered them but they got cancelled :(
I LOVE all of your choices..lucky ladies who can wear 4 inch heels ;)

Siri said...

I'll take the $775 ones please, for free.

See you around town : )

Definitely believe that which you stated.

Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net
the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while
people consider worries that they just do not know about.

You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing
without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
