Michael Kors Pumps, Heels Review: Leather, Suede, Satin, Raffia, Stretch; Metallic, Glitter, Python, Other

Updated on January 10, 2015

Michael Kors Dress

Michael Kors pumps and heels section hosts a broad variety of designs: the simplest, elegant and classic shoes that can be worn in a range of settings – from corporate to dressy – and elaborate, intricately built pumps that can also be categorized as sandals.

The simpler the architecture of the shoe, the more it draws from the designer's most understated qualities: earthy or neutral colors, strong, powerful lines, and no frills semi-open layout. As the footwear becomes more complex, it starts to feature additional subtleties and ornamental details – a combinations of straps, perforated leather, crystal and metallic accents (which spill over to the heel – in a way matching Christian Louboutin's iconic red sole), and others.

Some of the more fancy designs cannot be described as purely pumps – the persistence of sandal and even booties stylistic properties contributes to an eclectic, well-rounded appearance that projects character – and demands one from the wearers.


Besides standard leather and suede, Michael Kors introduces python embossing and animal (leopard, zebra, other) prints, glitter, rhinestones, and fabrics – from delicate satin, to rustic raffia. Rhinestones appear not only on the upper – as Stuart Weitzman, Jimmy Choo, and Christian Louboutin do – but also on the heels.

Evening Pumps

Evening shoes tend to limit the palette to one or two tones (black, white, off-white, beige, and other neutrals); in order to inject the footwear with extra dressy glisten, Michael Kors deploys glitter or metallic leather finish. Separate models rely on glossy patent leather or satin for the required dose of elegance.

This segment also stands out for its unusual variety of types of heels: classic thin stilettos appear besides robust stacked ones (almost column-like in structure), solid wedges, chunky, sculpted, and others. Dillon, Sasha, Salinas, Nadia, and other collections.

Heel Sandals

Pumps that Michael Kors describe as such despite more than a few features characteristic only of sandals anticipate the creativity of the latter dedicated department. In particular the weaved parts in the raffia shoes echo the use of chains, leather braids, tassels, zippers, and multiple buckles.

Downtown, Shimmer, Berkley, Powell, and other collections.
