They're a sell-out for a reason.

No matter how many pairs of heels you own, there’s a good chance there’s one set you favour above all others.

Perhaps it’s because you know you can dance an entire night away without hobbling home or they simply pair well with everything. But, once you find that pair, you never want to let them go.  

If you’re yet to own that perfect pair, I’m here to tell you I’ve found them for you.

No breaking in pair after pair, braving blisters, and long nights out on aching arches, these heels are tried, tested and overwhelmingly approved.

The pair in question is the Harlow Pump by Dear Frances.

The luxury brand is known for creating high-end classics by hand in Italy for the modern woman and is a favourite of Kendall Jenner and Margot Robbie.


With a demure round toe, edgy flared heel and slim ankle strap, the Harlow Pump is as versatile as it its stunning. The closed toe allows for year-round wear, while it’s modern take on a classic shape means it will pair back with almost everything in your wardrobe.

While I’m not the only one obsessed with this sexy and sleek heel—it’s sold out countless times and is, once again, on pre-order for their next restock—I set out to prove that my overwhelming adoration for the shoe was warranted.

Affirming my point, I paired the heel with jeans, midi and mini skirts, flared plants and even managed to layer them over stockings and socks.

Outside of being versatile, the Harlow Pump was genuinely comfortable to wear—the 7.5cm heel height meant it was easy to walk, dance and get around in, while the 100% leather meant the shoes moulded to my foot after a few wears. Like many heels, they may not be without their blisters (particularly because of the patent finish, so prepare to break them in a little). 

The Harlow Pump is also a relatively wide fit, meaning anyone with a narrow foot may find these too roomy or big. 

You can shop The Harlow pump for $720 at Dear Frances, and scroll on for each way I styled the shoe.
