Covet These Office Pumps!



Admittedly, a corporate woman needs something a little more sophisticated. That was exactly what I had in mind when I developed this collection for Effegi together with my supplier. Heel height is reasonable at 7 cms to 9 cms which translates to 2 ¾ inches and 3 ½  inches.



Elegant, sophisticated yet very comfortable office pumps. These were also made available in different classic colors such as brown, beige, navy, tan, red to give ladies more choices.



The only drawback for me was that the material used are all synthetic, I would have preferred leather, but I had to create a product line for this market that is within the limits of affordable price points.




So this is how it all starts, suppliers present to me their shoelasts and other components and I start to make design complete with the type of materials to use and where to buy them. 



On an ordinary day this is how my working table looks like :D It's busy, busy, busy! Thanks to my Angels who cleans up after me.

    1. So do I. But as a designer & purchaser, I have to serve the market of women who likes these toe silhouettes. I'll just make better alternatives for those who are not fans of these :)

    2. They look so good! I often just try them on when in malls but end up still getting the regular-shaped shoes.

  4. Nice shoes Clarissa, it's so much better when they are non-synthetic. The leather should be easier to form to the curves of feet.

    1. You're right John, I would have preferred it in leather, but the biggest consideration was the retail price points.

    1. Thanks.... I also wish these are still available, I'm just not sure anymore, but if you'd like it would be worth trying the Effegi at the SM dept. store. Hopefully I could remake this collection soon :)

    1. I understand that not all women uses pointed toed shoes & that includes me, but as a designer I had learned through the years that I cannot design products just for me, I have to offer collections that would cater to almost all the needs of our target market.
