Sarah Flint Perfect Pump Review

how to style sarah flint perfect pumps

I am a sucker for a great pair of pumps but finding a pair that is as comfy as they are cute can be hard to find. After the last year, I’ve come to realize that there is no room in my life for uncomfortable shoes and sometimes it just takes a little longer to find the ideal shoe. Thankfully, I was introduced to Sarah Flint and was gifted a pair of the perfect pumps (which she worked to develop over two years!!), and the name is as accurate as it gets.

Without sacrificing style, the perfect pump is one of the comfiest (if not the comfiest!) pairs of pumps I have ever put on my foot. It comes in three different heights – 50mm, 85mm, and 100mm. I opted for the 85mm, which is the perfect mid-height, ideal for all-day wear, and are incredibly easy to walk in.

Sarah Flint Perfect Pump Review

About Sarah Flint

Passionate about women’s shoes that are as comfortable as they are stylish, Sarah Flint launched her shoe brand in 2013 with the goal of creating a brand that was elegant on the outside and comfortable on the inside. Sarah Flint now has a cultivated celebrity following and her shoes have been worn by Amal Clooney, Meghan Markle, Cindy Crawford, and Lady Gaga just to name a few! If they’re wearing her shoes, they HAVE to be good. 

The thing I love about Sarah Flint shoes is that the entire collection is handcrafted in Italy by artisans that make some of the finest shoes in the world. Sarah herself studied shoe pattern making and production and you can tell by the quality of the shoes. No detail was missed! Plus, they’re all sold direct to consumer, making the pricing much more affordable than what it would be if they were sold at retailers like Nordstrom, Saks, etc.

What Sets the Perfect Pump Apart

Sarah Flint went above and beyond with her Perfect Pump and it’s unlike any other pump on the market. Here’s what sets it apart. 

  • Anatomical arch support helps support the natural arch of the foot. 
  • An extra 6mm of memory foam in the footbed for extra comfort.
  • A wider toe box to ease foot crowding so you can wear your SFs all day. 
  • Rubber sole for extra grip to ensure secure walkability.
  • Steel rod stiletto that improves durability and longevity of the heel.
  • V-shaped vamp that shoes just the right amount of toe cleavage.

Sarah Flint Perfect Pump Sizing

The Sarah Flint website does say that the Perfect Pump does run true to size with the initial fit being comfortably snug, but will stretch in width with wear. I typically wear a size 6 (SF is European sizing – there’s a size chart on the website!) but when it comes to anything with a pointy toe, I always size up half a size so I ordered a 36.5 but found them to be a little too snug lengthwise so I sized up to a 37 (size 7!) and they fit perfectly. 

Because I did originally order a 36.5 and had to exchange for a 37, I got to experience the amazing Sarah Flint customer service. The entire process was so easy and I got my new pair in no time!

Final Thoughts

The Sarah Flint Perfect Pump is such a gorgeous shoe and the 85mm heel height is perfect for everyday wear, especially for commuting to work or exploring the city. I have never thought about extra padding in a shoe, but the padding in the arch of the Perfect Pump is game-changing.

For my next pair of SFs, I’m considering the 100mm Perfect Pump in navy suede (swoooooon) and the Natalie – the perfect pointed-toe flat.
