I think I heard Renee use that "term" when referring to shoes. Does anyone say that any more?

All the major department stores and specialty shoe stores carry pumps. You can google the term "women's pumps" and finds all kinds, styles.


Here's wikipedia's def with picture of low heel pumps:

"What shoes are considered pumps?
Image result
In the U.S., "pumps" exclusively refers to women's shoes with a kitten or higher heel. Pumps can be made from any material, but traditional patent leather is popular. Pumps are mostly worn with a suit or a uniform, but are also worn with formal and informal dresses, skirts, trousers, and jeans.

I have never used that word in relation to shoes.

I use it but it means a higher block heel and somewhat plain closed toe dress shoe to me.

Yes, I do. When you put it in the QVC search nearly 500 shoes show up.


I still say pumps, dungarees, and pocketbooks. 😆 Among other terms.
