I’m not one to play favorites (wait, who am I kidding? Yes, I am!), but the pointy pump is decidedly my bigger winner of the moment. It just feels right, right now. Now that I have laid eyes on Lazaro’s and Jack’s latest melding of sporty meets insanely chic, it looks like my recently newfound love of the sharp pump will not be slowing down anytime soon.
Nobody does a mix of fabrics, skins, and moods quite like Proenza Schouler. Taking woven fabric with an athletic air and splashing it with a soft leather cap-toe and a wicked heel, equally striking in hot orange or shimmering blue, then planting it on a dangerous, mirrored heel is sheer visual brilliance. The dual palettes are equally tempting. Since I think I’ll be in dagger-like pumps for the long haul, I might have to spring for them both – and really get the point across (pun intended).
