Pumps, also known as court shoes, are an essential part of women's fashion. These classic shoes have remained a staple in every stylish woman's wardrobe due to their versatility and timeless elegance. Pumps are perfect for a wide range of occasions, from office meetings to evening parties. At Miinto, we offer a diverse selection of pumps for women that cater to different tastes and styles.

Why do we call them pumps?

The term 'pumps', referring to a specific type of women's shoe, has an interesting history. The origin of the name is not entirely clear, but it is believed to be derived from the old French word 'pompe', related to the Spanish and Italian word 'pompa', which means pomp or splendour. These words were used in reference to ceremonial or court shoes worn by men in the 16th century. Over time, this term evolved and was anglicised into 'pump'. In its early usage in England around the 1500s, a pump was described as a light shoe without fastenings that could be easily slipped on, similar to what we would now call a loafer or slipper. However, it wasn't until the late 18th century that pumps started being associated with women's footwear. At that time, they were simple flat shoes made of leather or fabric with a decorative bow at the front - quite different from today’s high-heeled versions. Despite changes in style and design over centuries, the name ‘pump’ has remained consistent for this type of shoe. It's fascinating how language evolves along with fashion trends!

Pumps are a must-have women's shoe

The market for pumps is characterised by great versatility, and the selection of shoes varies from pumps with a sophisticated and elegant look to pumps with a more feminine and seductive style. That is why pumps are an indispensable item in every woman's wardrobe. Among the many lush shoes that we have at Miinto, you will find fashionable pumps from leading international brands such as JHAY, NeroGiardini, Paul Green, Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors and Le Pep. In other words - Miinto is synonymous with a trendy and large online selection of pumps.

Styling Your Pumps Like A Fashionista

Pumps can be styled in numerous ways depending on the occasion and your personal preference. For an elegant work look, pair them with tailored trousers or pencil skirts. If you're heading out for drinks after work, simply swap your blouse for a sequined top or slip into a little black dress - your pumps will transition seamlessly from day to night! For casual weekends, try pairing them with jeans and t-shirts or floral dresses.

Choosing The Perfect Pair Of Pumps

Choosing the perfect pair of pumps can often be a daunting task, given the vast array of styles, colours, and materials available on the market. However, there are certain factors that one must consider to ensure not only an impeccable style but also optimum comfort. The first consideration should be the heel height. While sky-high stilettos may offer a certain glamour quotient, they are not always practical or comfortable for everyday wear. A mid-heel pump is often a more versatile choice as it offers a balance between style and comfort, making it suitable for both office wear and social occasions. Secondly, when selecting the material of your pumps, leather is typically recommended due to its durability and ability to mould to your foot shape over time for added comfort. In terms of colour selection, while bold colours can make a fashion statement, neutral shades like black or nude offer greater versatility as they can complement almost any outfit in your wardrobe. Lastly but crucially important is ensuring the right fit - remember that sizes may vary across different brands so always try before you buy. Ideally, there should be enough room in the toe box for you to wiggle your toes comfortably and when standing in new pumps; your feet should feel firmly supported without any pinching or slipping at the back. With these considerations in mind, you'll be well-equipped to find that perfect pair of pumps which effortlessly blend style with comfort.

Revamping Your Wardrobe With Pumps 

Pumps are a great way to revamp your wardrobe without investing in a whole new set of clothes. A fresh pair in a vibrant colour or with unique detailing can completely transform an outfit, giving it a new lease of life.
