Growing up I didn't like any shoe that was pointy. I thought pointy shoes were for older people and they just looked odd. Now that I am old enough to understand fashion and figure out what I like, I don't think they are bad anymore. They are a great piece to have in your shoe collection because they are a wardrobe basic. They can be worn with a lot casual, formal, or even business attire. Above are some pointy black pumps that are way cheaper than the Manolo Blahnik, but they are just as cute. Also I think everyone should have a pair of nude pumps because they help make your legs look longer.
