Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Pumps with 3″ or Shorter Heels

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Mary requested a few picks for colorful, quality pumps with heels 3″ or shorter, so here we go:

lifestride pumps

LifeStride Parigi Pump – was $60, now $15.99 – $54.95

Such a pretty, classic round-toe pump, and with a walkable 2.5″ heel and insole cushioning. Most available colors aren’t super bright, but this mint is fabulous for spring, and you can also nab this style in navy patent, burgundy reptile, coral reptile, wine croc print, gold leather, and an array of neutrals from black to cognac to white. Available in U.S. sizes 5 – 12, including A, C, and E widths. Size and width availability varies by color. Some colors and sizes also available at DSW.

nine west purple heels

Nine West Swaymeso Pump – was $79, now $63.20
with code SHOESNBAGS

Although the listing says this color is blue, it looks mighty purple to me. Regardless, it’s a great bold shade for spring and summer with a rounded toe and 2.5″ heel. Available in this blue/purple as well as pink or white in U.S. sizes 5 – 12. Size availability varies by color. If you strike out size-wise, this Nine West pointed-toe suede heel is a great alternative in bright pink or emerald green, and can be protected with a little Timberland Balm Proofer. And this lovely yellow pump by Bandolino comes in wide widths.

hush puppies red high heel

Hush Puppies Imagery Pump – was $80, now $24 – $47.40

If you prefer a block heel, these Hush Puppies are a fabulous option. With a stable 2″ heel and rounded toe, these will keep you comfy for hours. This bold red is my favorite, but the style also comes in navy and a variety of neutrals. Available in U.S. sizes 5.5 – 12, including some C/D widths. Size and width availability varies by color.

trotters navy pumps

Trotters Penelope Pump – was $130, now $31.20 – $104
with code SHOESNBAGS

Navy might not be the most thrilling color in the world, but it is versatile and I know some of you are on the lookout for classic navy pumps. This style has a 0.25″ hidden platform and 2″ heel for a perceived height of 2″. The toe is on the almond side of round and very elegant. Navy suede is also available, along with burgundy leather, burgundy suede, blush, and neutrals including cognac, taupe, and black. Available in U.S sizes 5 – 12, including A and C/D widths. Size and width availability varies by color.


Honorable mentions:

  • These suede pumps from Ara are only available in a few sizes, but chunky, funky, and cute. In yellow, purple, or orange
  • The Naturalizer Lennox is a classic, and available in this season in navy patent or teal suede.


Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful, quality pumps with heels 3″ or shorter:

  1. Nine West – As evidenced above. Prints, solids, pastels, and primaries. Love this bold red d’Orsay pair.
  2. Miz Mooz – Lots of fun options, and all of them comfy and well made. Check Amazon, too.
  3. Cole Haan – Top quality, and lots of great colors. Amazon has some prints and solids, too.

    These are all great picks Sally! I love the color of the lifestride, pale mint is so pretty on footwear.
    I always have trouble finding cute low heeled shoes so this was helpful.
    I would like to request modest, colorful dresses for spring or skirts. Ones that I can sit down in and climb stairs safely without extra care so perhaps below the knee length. Thank you.
