What: A Sam Edelman round-toe basic black pump in suede, with snakeskin and metallic accents at the heel.
Why: A classic black pump is a wardrobe staple, and finding a quality one for less than $100 is major. Edelman’s shoes are well-made and rarely come in sub-$100, so this is a total steal; not to mention, the subtle accents upgrade it from “just” a black pump to one with a bit of an edge.
How: This shoe would make a great keep-at-the-office staple to wear when you’re at work. The relatively low heel also means it’s great for running around town, too.
