These can fit up to a half size large but it's a beautiful shoe and a great heel height.

On November 8th, 1946 beauty school & salon owner Viola Desmond was arrested for sitting in the white-patron only seating in the segregated Roseland Theatre in Nova Scotia. Viola was forcibly removed from the theatre, jailed overnight, and convicted of tax evasion for not paying the one cent difference for the black seating in the balcony. Viola contested the court decisions and after the Nova Scotian court upheld the decision against her, Viola closed her beauty shop and eventually moved out of Canada. Viola's courageous protest was the first significant step in equal rights for all, and helped spark The Canadian Civil Rights Movement.

We celebrate and honour Viola by naming this striking and confident pump after her - a pump that will walk with you throughout the day and into the night. With options of shiny metallics, glossy patents, supple floral patterns, painted bovine hair leathers, or supersaturated waxy canvas uppers built on foot molding leather soles, The Desmond Pump uses modern materials on a classic style. John gave the super-pointed Big Presence last a little lift with a diamond shaped 2.75" canvas wrapped heel with swooping curves, giving this simple pump an unusually distinctive profile. If you put the Desmond pumps sole-to-sole, and heel-to-heel, John leaves you with a lasting impression straight from his heart. Present yourself well.

The Most Comfortable Pump I have Ever Worn

Rebel Belle - Vancouver, BC
I was on the fence about picking up the Desmond in black leather as I had not owned a pair of all leather pumps in a long time and was worried about comfort. All I can say is I am soooo glad I added these to my shoe collection; so incredibly comfortable and breathable. Took a bit of getting used to as the heel is an unconventional shape but I love these shoes so much, I hope more colours and finishes are added.

Simply the best pump

Anne - Washington
I have three pairs of Desmonds and would consider a fourth. These are my favorite pumps ever - they're both elegant and so comfortable I can wear them all day, even in summer without hose, and not get blisters, even when walking considerable distances. I have basic black, bright yellow, and floral, and I get compliments on them all the time - ESPECIALLY the floral. Highly recommended.

watch out for color transfer - unstable pigment

C - Boston
I've had the blue Desmond for a few years, only worn a handful of times though I love the style and color. I put them on today for the first time in a while. The surface has become sticky. And I have just discovered that the blue color is unstable and is rubbing off like crayon on everything: me, my clothes, furniture. Maybe the pigment failure has been fixed since I bought them, but maybe not. I'll be following up with the company to see if anything can be done for this malfunction.
