Description

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.

Please bring th Desmond back in black leather. Size 7! Love my red pair. My world needs more.

More Desmond's Please

dhr - Los Angeles
Funny, I'm not one to write reviews but I found an old one I wrote after buying my first pair in black leather. In my review I swore to buy more in other colors. I have since bought them in red and copper. But I need a new pair in black leather and you're out of my size (7). PLEASE bring back the Desmond in leather! These are the most comfortable heels I own!

Flower Power!

Leah - Seattle
I have to say that the floral print is the most stunning thing ever. I never thought I would own a pair of floral shoes but the fabulous guys at the Seattle store brought them out as something to "just try on" and I fell in love. Apparently, each shoe is slightly different which just makes them even more "unique soles" for us unique souls. Wore them to work today and nearly every single person commented on how beautiful they are. Eight hours later and still going strong!
