The color alone is inspiring. The steel tipped 80mm (little more than 3") heel combined with the very lightly razor cut leather makes this pump, well.... inspiring. The texture is almost like microscopic venetian blinds letting color in or out depending on their angle. You'll know what it's all about when you put them on your feet. Sizing is about a half size small, so if you're a size 8, then order the 8.5.
