Sexy Shoe Spotlight: Tom Ford Padlock Pumps

After several seasons of celebs wearing what seemed like nothing but massive platform pumps, we’re happy to see some fashion-forward stars switching to single-sole heels. And the latest must-have style is the Tom Ford Padlock.

Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian both recently stepped out in the pointy-toe design, which retails for a cool $1,100 and features a golden lock-and-key charm hanging from the ankle strap as well as a golden-covered heel.

Lopez wore the shoes in black twice during Paris Fashion Week: First paired with a red cap-sleeve Hakaan dress at a dinner, then with a white lace mini to the Chanel show.

Kardashian took a more casual approach by teaming the white version with a blue pencil skirt and chambray shirt while out in Miami.

We’re pretty pleased about the return of the single-sole shoe. The sleek shape makes legs appear longer and leaner, plus it’s far more chic than a clunky sky-high platform. The only downside? The style is tougher to walk in since there is less foot support. But you know what they say: the most uncomfortable heels tend to be the sexiest. Tell us: Are you ready to say goodbye to platforms and try single-sole heels instead? Sound off below!

Those shoes are hot, i like the black better because it goes with everything, white shoes are tricky.
