Everyone needs a pair of black patent leather pumps in their closet. It’s that classic heel that can easily transition from work to happy hour or be the safe shoe option when you don’t want to be underdressed or overdressed for an occasion.

My black patent leather Christian Louboutin Pigalles (pictured above) are 100mm in height, which is equivalent to about 4 inches. They are one of my most comfortable heels, once I broke into them.
Here are a few of my black patent leather pump picks for all budgets:
