I love a good classic black pump for the office and it is my personal taste to get a pointy toe. I have had these for about 2 years and although there are more expensive and even cheaper brand name dress heels available I have been 100% happy with this purchase. They are leather, so will scuff, but low maintenance, easy to clean and polish. I find them to be comfortable, but I also can define a high heel so really it is based off of preference. They are 4", but honestly don't look that high with outfits and I still find them office appropriate. They look great with a midi or pencil skirt and blouse. As you can kinda tell by this pic? I am wearing mine with these Soft Twill Dressy Jogger Pants.
