The Perfect Pump. (Truly!)
I know that at times I can be overly effusive when I get really obsessed with something (Dr. Bader, Good American Jeans…) but it’s hard because I just get so excited and need to share, while simultaneously worrying that I sound too “sales-y” babbling on over how much I love them.
This year I became obsessed with Sarah Flint. Cindy Crawford is an investor in her company and at a luncheon we all received a gift card for a free pair of shoes. Cool, free shoes – who doesn’t like that!? After careful consideration I decided on the Emma Slingback. I got them in a cognac suede which is now sold out and wore them constantly (still do but you can see some evidence of that here, here, here, and here). She ended up sending me the slingbacks in tortoise (seen here) which I absolutely love as well.
But today we are here to talk about her Perfect Pump, which Sarah spent TWO YEARS designing until she had a design she felt was truly perfect. You guys, this is a bold statement… but I like them more than my Manolos. They are so stylish (I love the subtle v at the toe box) but also SO COMFORTABLE.
The perfect pump comes in three heights. I am the Goldilocks of high heels. They can’t be too low, but they can’t be too tall! There’s the lowest height (50mm) which is insanely comfortable (I could probably run a few miles in them if need be) but a bit too low, the taller heel (100m) which is so sexy but a bit high for me, and then the mid-height (85mm) which is MY perfect pump. It’s makes your legs and butt look amazing but I can walk in them all day/night, which is the most important thing. They’re the most comfortable heels I own but also one of the best looking pairs. The secret to comfort is all in the proprietary rubber sole, which ensures grip, comfort, and longevity.
I can’t even express how much I love these heels. I want to wear them every single day because they’re just so perfect. Sarah generously gifted me the black pair as a part of our collaboration, but I actually went and bought the nude (it’s called blush nappa but I find it to be more of a nude – I saw it in person at her showroom) and the taupe suede. They’re available in six different colors. Meghan Markle, Lady Gaga, and Karlie Kloss are all fans of the brand!
We have a treat for you! Take $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes with code GRACE50. I am confident that you will love them as much as I do!
I have shared Sarah’s shoes a lot here and on my instagram stories and get a lot of questions. The biggest was whether the “blush” is a nude. It is. It looks just like the photo on the website; I think they chose “blush” as the name as nude is different for everyone depending on your skin color.
The other question is always about sizing! I am an 8.5 and wear a 39 in all four pairs of shoes that I have from her. I would say that the loafers run a little bit tight but overall, the sizing is true to size.
This is a company I really believe in. Everything is designed in New York by Sarah and then handmade in Italy. Something Sarah says really resonates with me: “As a woman, I understand the frustration of buying shoes that end up sitting in your closet. Because of this, I obsess over the details of fit and construction to make the most comfortable and durable shoes, never sacrificing an ounce of style.”
YES! I have sold so many of my pricier heels on The RealReal and now I obsess over making sure the shoes I buy are both comfortable and beautiful. These fit the bill 1,000%
I hope you love this brand as much as I do! Again, don’t forget – GRACE50 will get you $50 off your first pair!
