Nude Pumps: Dash from Sole Society

Finding a nude pump is easy, but finding the perfect nude pump can be very tricky. For starters, you need to rule out any styles that you know you hate, anything you feel uncomfortable walking in, and anything that isn't along the lines of your normal shoe preferences such as heel height, open toe or closed, material, etc. Maybe we're not all that picky when it comes to our shoes, but I sure am! 

On top of everything on the checklist above the most important thing to me when shopping for nude heels is shade. I've been on the hunt for the most beautiful nude pump under $100 for a long time now. While I did come close to settling for a pair I wasn't completely in love with, I'm happy I decided to keep searching. Almost a year later.. the hunt is over!

Dash from Sole Society comes in just the shade of nude that I've been looking for! ..although the color is described on their site as "Lunar Grey". Below are some of the same shots with and without the flash (Left = Flash / Right = No Flash) so you can get a better idea of the true color.


The one thing that I was slightly unsure about before receiving these pumps was the toe design. It looks like a rounded toe, but it is actually somewhat square with two seams going down the front. 

After putting them on I quickly realized that despite the square toe being new to me, I love Dash! On top of them looking great, as you can see the squareness is hardly noticeable. As expected, these Marco Santi shoes from Sole Society are very comfortable. There is some extra padding in the ball of foot area which certainly helps. I haven't worn them yet so I can't tell you about long-term comfort, but I already know that because they are faux patent they are going need some breaking in. :)

This shoe also comes in black which I think I may just have to order as well. They are a great go-to pump and are perfect for work and play! If you are interested in the nude I would act quickly because I noticed that it is already sold out in size 7.5.

Dash is currently available from Sole Society during the month of May. If you are not yet a member and would like to sign up for Sole Society you can do so here. If you are not familiar with shoe clubs please read my post on how shoe clubs work before heading over to their site.
