Vintage Pumps

Court shoes, opera slippers or ballet pumps – the most practical of heels has made a welcomed return for spring. With their low-cut front (working to lengthen the leg!) and mid-height, often sturdy heel (keeping you confidently on your feet all day), pumps are making their way back into our spring/summer wardrobes and becoming the go-to shoe for the season. Whether the term makes you think of high heels, mid heels, low heels, kitten heels or ballerina’s, the construction of pumps is often simple – especially for the traditional ballroom dancer pump where a whole-cut leather upper is attached to a full leather sole. Pumps come in all kinds of fabrics, textures and colours, but patent leather is a recurring footwear designer favourite, effortlessly elevating the smart appeal of the comforting mid-heel.

OfV says: The unrivalled smart shoe default for summer, pumps confidently lift any look in an instant whilst ensuring comfort throughout the day. The vast array of styles available makes pumps suited for just about every occasion. A glimpse into the style files proves the point: Marilyn Monroe owned an extensive collection of pump devotee Salvatore Ferragamo’s creations, which she wore her signature hyper-feminine way with figure-hugging cocktail dresses or two-piece skirt suits; whereas Kate Moss has turned to vintage pumps to add feminine appeal to a rock fused skinny jeans and a leopard coat ensemble. A neat pair in satin or patent leather would be smart enough to walk you down the aisle; and a chunky heeled pair would polish up a jeans and t-shirt look while keeping the leisured impression.

From Salvatore Ferragamo’s iconic Varina ballerina pumps to Valentino’s modern classic rockstud, the awe-inspiring Open for Vintage edit of vintage pumps and pre-owned designer pumps taps some of the most crucial pump styles made. Embrace the timeless appeal of a monochrome pair of Chanel Mary Jane’s; indulge in a pointy or peep toe pair from pump pioneers Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin; or slip into a pair of flattering mules (the shoe shape of the season) – a chunky heel style will add an up-to-the-minute touch to a vintage ensemble.

At Open for Vintage, we consider everyone as a collector with a desire to possess beautiful things with a story worth living on. Our curated edit of unique and contemporary vintage and pre-owned fashion pieces are hand-picked for their individuality, relevance, and of course, style appeal.
