You can’t go wrong with a good pair of black pumps because they always end up being very useful. I find them really handy for walking to work in and they tend to go with most outfits. I try pretty hard to avoid buying pumps from places like Topshop or Primark because they just don’t last very long and you end up having to repurchase them on a monthly basis. I’d much rather spend a bit more and buy Converse, Vans or Keds and know that they will last me for a good few months, if not longer.
Converse tend to be my first choice but over the years I’ve also been a fan of Keds. I think they can look a little smarter, especially when they are in black or navy. It’s important to remember that Keds seem to be larger than other shoes and are also quite narrow. These Keds were meant to be a 5 but felt more like a 6. I would recommenced dropping down a size if you’re ordering online. If you’re thinking of treating yourself to a new pair of pumps then you will be pleased to know that ASOS have some Keds reduced at the moment!
