The ballet pump is back.

Yep, the Noughties most popular shoe is undergoing something of a resurgence for 2023 and you know what? We’re kind of into it.

On a practical note, at least this is happening in spring – we all have PTSD from weathering a winter in these things back in college.

As the days get brighter, fashion people are wearing them with baggy jeans (again, not ideal on a wet day) and black stirrup leggings (more realistic).

Add a blazer for an en pointe look at work or take a tip from the Miu Miu runway and pair your pumps with cosy ribbed socks or le warmers and a pleated skirt for a sharp weekend lewk.
