can a girl have too many black patent pumps? no i say!!!! (we need not explain our addictions, we just need to be accepted for them).
one often posted Louboutin question has been "i need a classic pair of pumps and i don't know which to get" or "which one of the Louboutin pumps is the most comfortable"
there are so many styles to choose from, but is a pump just another pump? actually, the answer is pretty much no, in my opinion. Louboutin makes closed toed (without platform) pumps in many styles - Simple, Ron Ron, Décolleté, Clichy. how do you pick just one!?
left to right - black Simple 85 mm heel; black Ron Ron 100 mm heel; black Clichy 100 mm heel
it may be repetive, okay.. but they each serve different purposes, i swear! the Simple 85 is by far the most comfortable. as you can see by the pitch, it is the "flattest" one of the 3. i can wear this shoe for a whole day, walking around for 6 hours without any problems.
the Ron Ron is sesssssssy, but the pitch more unforgiving, so this shoe is for me, a "3 hour" reception heel. the Clichy is slightly more elongated and i wear this when i want the sleeker look of a 100 mm heel instead of a practical 85 mm.
there are also differences in the toebox (length and width) for each pair. the toebox in addition to the pitch of the shoe, also dictates how comfortable the shoe will be.

So, ladies, what is your "go to" classic pump?
