Seeing black platform pump after black platform pump on celebrities on the red carpet can get tiring. But if I ever see a celeb wearing THIS particular black platform pump, I just might take back what I said about black platform pumps being blah, basic and boring.
This is what I’m talking about, the T.U.K. A7883L Wedge Pump:
Definitely nothing ordinary about this black platform pump! Although they’re deceivingly simple satin-bowed shoes when viewed from the front, a quick turn or a side angle will show you that they’re really more than just that.
The first thing you would notice about these shoes are of course the rows of luxurious satin ribbon pleats covering the back of the heel. It’s such a beautiful detail placed on an often-overlooked part of the shoe, and I love that T.U.K. was able to maximize their use out of it.
The second thing you would notice (or maybe the first for some) is the shockingly high heel. That heel means serious business ladies — it measures a smidge shy of 6 inches. The platform sole in front measures about 2 inches which should help in dealing with the sky-high heel, but that might not matter much when we’re talking heel heights at these insane levels.
T.U.K. (Tread United Kingdom), the maker of this shoe, is a “born in the UK, raised in California” shoe company that makes rock n’ roll-inspired footwear for women, men and kids. So if you detected some retro and rockabilly vibes coming from the T.U.K. A7883L Wedge Pump, then your shoe style radar is spot on.
T.U.K. is also the maker of the original “creeper sneakers” so when it comes to punk, rock n’ roll, rockabilly and even goth footwear, these guys know what they’re talking about.
The T.U.K. A7883L Wedge Pump is $100.00 at Amazon. Don’t forget to also check out the rest of the T.U.K. shoe collection – these shoes are heavy on attitude and heavy on personality, but light on the price.
