In Praise of the Pump

Leave it to Christian Dior to present the one shoe that every discerning lady should own.

What is the very essence of femininity — the classic pump — is a definitive shoe in any discerning lady’s wardrobe. Transitioning seamlessly from daywear into the cool glamour of the night, it comes as no surprise that the house of Christian Dior has forever lead the way in the world of the perfectly proportioned pump.

Year after year, their considered footwear collections flaunt stilettos with a strikingly elegant silhouette, rendering them one of the most flattering shoes on the market. With a perfect pointed toe and a deep, provocative décolléte, Dior pumps are a teetering symbol of sophistication and an understated showstopper in any occasion.

Taking care of our sartorial needs, a smart collection of pumps await at the Queen Street boutique, including the widely anticipated Dioressence range — a reinterpretation of the iconic Christian Dior pump circa 1959. Whether worn with a pair of distressed jeans and a loosely fitted white shirt, or a stunning LBD, it’s safe to say that there will never be a day when we cease to praise the pump.
