Known as court shoes in British English, a pump is a shoe with a low-cut front or vamp, and without a fastening.

Pumps with a strap across the instep are called Mary Janes.

A good pump is a silhouette, like the bone structure of the face. It’s like a beautiful face with no make-up. You can cover a not-so-beautiful face with make-up, but it is just a mask – it is the same with shoes – Christian Louboutin

Funnily enough, the most difficult style to do is the plain pump because it needs to look good on a variety of feet. I compare it to having a good bone structure. Make-up will make you look good, but it helps if you have a good skeleton to begin with – Christian Louboutin
