This is such an 80’s inspired shoe. And true to the low heel footwear trend for 2010 it has a one and ¾ inch heel. Wooohooo!

To say that these pumps are comfortable is an understatement. While I haven’t yet put them through their paces, they have the potential to be 8-hour city shoes. The cushioning foot bed is sublime, and the balls of your feet are in heaven because the foot is only slightly arched. The toe box is cut quite low and wide which will make it work for a broader foot too. There will probably be enough space for a bunion to breathe on the side of the shoe.

While the Essex pump might look a little more conservative than the funkier wedge styles that Me Too has in their range at the moment, it truly is the more comfortable shoe because it’s softer and roomier. I like it’s retro flare and wholeheartedly believe that this pump can look sassy and hip if you want it to. Remember that it’s HOW you wear it that counts. They are already on sale for $72 at the moment. Please indulge your feet!
