Read my Sarah Flint Perfect Pump review!
It’s just the week of product reviews over here on LSL, huh?! I kind of stopped writing posts like this for a while because people always assumed that they were sponsored/would tune them out – but something has shifted and I think you guys tend to appreciate in depth reviews again. So let’s chat about The Perfect Pump by Sarah Flint! (This product was gifted to me, but this blog post is not sponsored. Regardless, all opinions expressed here are ALWAYS my own.)
When it comes to pumps, I’ve never thought they were particularly comfortable, and they seem even less comfortable after a year and a half of not wearing them at ALL during the pandemic. I’ve also never been one to ever spend more than $150 on a pair of heels… but as the world began opening up again and wedding events started getting scheduled, I realized it was time for this 34 year old to invest in high quality classic pumps that won’t ruin my feet. And that led me to Sarah Flint!
Sarah Flint Perfect Pump Review
About Sarah Flint
Sarah Flint launched her shoe brand in 2013 in hopes of creating shoes that are as comfortable as they are stylish. Since then, she has been wildly successful, turning the heads of celebrities like Meghan Markle, Cindy Crawford, Amal Clooney, Lady Gaga and so many more.
So, what’s the hype about? Well first of all, her entire collection of shoes are designed in New York and then hand made in Italy using Italian materials. She also uses a direct-to-consumer model that has allowed her to sell these high quality luxury shoes for a fraction of what other designer shoes of the same quality cost. I know $395 for a pair of pumps is expensive, but if this shoe had a different label on it, it would easily be double. That’s how good they are.
The Perfect Pump Review
Okay let’s talk about the Perfect Pump specifically. I got the Perfect Pump 85 in Sand Calf and they really live up to the name – they’re the perfect nude pump. First of all, they’re stunning. The first time I tried them on, even Adam said “I love those shoes!” 😂 But maybe the best selling point is that they’re actually comfortable. I wore them all day at my bridal shower and my feet were completely fine. I can’t say that about any other pumps I own, unless they have a block heel – and even then, it’s a toss up. And speaking of bridal events, they also have a bridal collection including a white version of the Perfect Pump. Aren’t they gorgeous?!
Here are a few things that set the perfect pump apart:
Wider Toe Box
The perfect pump was specifically designed with a wider toe box so your toes don’t feel crowded or squished when you wear them all day.
These shoes have 6mm of extra padding added to the footbed for comfort. Thank you for that, SF!
Anatomical Arch Support
There is a shaped insole inside of the shoe to support the natural arch of your foot – and that might not seem super important when you read it, but it makes a HUGE difference when you wear it.
Steel Rod Stiletto
The center steel rod heel ensures durability and security so you’re never worried about snapped your heel when you’re out and about. It also looks super sleek, too.
Three different heights
The Perfect Pump comes in 3 different heights – 50mm, 85mm, and 100mm. I have the 85mm (3.3 inches) which truly feels like the ideal height for me. But if you like a higher heel or a lower heel, she has those options for you, too!
Sarah Flint Sizing
I am pretty much always a 6.5 in shoes, so I got a 36.5 in my Perfect Pumps (SF uses Italian sizing!). The website suggests going a 1/2 size up, but I didn’t find that to be necessary for me. They recommend that the initial fit be comfortably snug, as it will stretch a little bit with wear.
