When I came across the “Darron Pump”, by BCBGeneration, at one of my favorite shoe stores, there was no way I was leaving without a pair! A deceivingly good knock-off of Valentino’s “Rockstud’ Pump“, this shoe is available in three bold colors: red, black, and turquoise and for a fraction of the cost of a designer pair. Aside from the eye-catching aesthetics, design, and price, these shoes are actually comfortable. After being out and about for a good six hours in these bad boys, I am happy to report no blisters or sore soles!
Just as I advise when styling any other statement piece, the same rules apply when it comes to a bold pair of shoes…don’t compete with them! In the ensemble below, I started out with a neutral colored blouse (available at Current Clothing SF but I love this one), then added a colorful infinity scarf (this one would be perfect) to compliment the kicks. I decided on a distressed skinny jean, cuffed at the ankle, because I wanted to show off the studded details along the t-strap of the shoe. A flare or bootcut jean would have covered up too much of the goodness. I completed the look with a simple cognac purse (similar here), my white watch and a pair of turquoise Kendra Scott earrings. While a jacket was not necessary on that sunny San Francisco Saturday, a while blazer would not take away from the look if you’re in cooler temps.
Whether you go with the red, black, or turquoise, these heels are sure to make a statement! If you go with red, think Valentine’s Day…get ’em while you can at your local DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse or shop online here.
