They’re not only called “dance shoes” because you wear them while you bust a move to your jam, but they can also earn that description when just getting a glimpse of the pair literally invigorates you to do a happy dance. Whether you’re on a dance floor or not, you’d love to get your feet into Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection as it hits refresh on disco-glam footwear.
Discover fun, feminine and opulent shoes but with a punkier aesthetic in the form of metallic printed croc, cool cut-outs, spike heels and sexy pleats. The brazen collection boasts of a color scheme befitting of a woman ready to conquer the world, but with an unapologetic need to party. Yellow, silver, light pink, fuchsia, and gold are paired with glitzy metals and hair-calf prints, resulting in statement shoes that would make for an unforgettable spring and summer sartorial season.
The Hand Painted Open Back Ankle Strap Pumps meet the criteria of a power shoe –a sharp, pointed toe, a low spike heel, a striking animal print glistening in gold and fuchsia metals plus ankle and back straps are the perfect combination of sassy and sexy, commanding and seductive.
We may have a longstanding love affair with classic pumps, but Tom Ford’s twist on the staple shoe has gotten as wanting to play footsie (literally and figuratively) with the Metallic Printed Croc Cut-Out Heel Pumps. In stunning silver, gold and light pink, these babies would look ultra-sleek when worn with cropped pants or to jazz up a little black dress. The low spike heel creates a voluptuous curve, creating a sexy silhouette despite its shortage in height.
And despite our love for color, black will always hold a special space in our shoe-obsessed hearts. The calf leather Frayed Satin Spike Heel Pump with its unravelled detailing lends a lovely contrast to the gold spike heel –perfect for a day-to-night shoe. The Pleated Wrap Sandal is perhaps our favorite –the wrap-around effect of the pleated viscose and seta fabrics along with the architectural block heel will definitely add extra s spring to our step (pun intended) this season.
About the author: Romina Tobias is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. She thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more).
