These lovely pumps by LK Bennet, named the 'Sledge' Pump, run $345 at Nordstrom
Now I have 3 children and a go to school full time, so that price is out of the question. But I did find these at Payless.
Named Karmen these are my go to pumps. Available in a range of colors, and come in wide width, for the bargain price of 24.99, I love these shoes
If you have a bit more capital that you can spare, check out these Bandolinos for $59.99 from Macys
Now in terms of breaking in a patent leather pump, because they can hurt badly right out of the box. I suggest, rubbing some simple lotion onto the area that needs improved and then warming up the leather with a blow dryer. Wear around the house with a pair of thick socks. Take them off when they begin to hurt. Repeat the next day. I have had very few shoes that take more than two days.
Have a classy day!
