    There's something about a plain black pump that instantly makes us not want to buy it. Call us crazy, but somehow, the classically "sensible" shoe just doesn't get our sartorial blood flowing — shocker, right?

    Well, thankfully, not every black pump is created equal. In fact, we've tracked down 10 truly stunning pairs that, while sensible, are lacking nothing in the style department. From gorgeous calf hair to ankle wraps to skeletal cutouts (just wait until you see these Ingelmos!), each of these heels would rightfully earn its place in even the most eccentric shoe collector's closet.

    The best part? These classic black beauties are just as versatile as your plain-Jane versions. Just swap one of these beauties in, and we guarantee you'll never look back.
