For years, round-toe pumps were the rule of thumb in the workplace, but this season, the classic pointy-toe stiletto—the same favored by “Mad Men”-era housewives and ’50s screen sirens—has staged a major comeback. Lucky for us, these new shoe styles can easily transition from the runway to your office.
Sophisticated, chic, and undeniably sexy, pointy-toe pumps are the perfect work-to-play solution for professional gals who’d prefer not to pack a spare pair of shoes in their purse. Granted, they may not be the most comfortable footwear trend to emerge in recent seasons (comfy clogs, we hardly knew ye), and you may need to practice your Beyoncé Super Bowl stomp in front of the mirror before taking them for a spin, but hey, that’s why they made Band-Aids small enough to fit in your pocket.
Here, we found 10 pointy pumps perfect for strutting your stuff from the office to after-work cocktails—from Christian Louboutin to Zara—so shop ’em now!
