Bondage has never looked so appealing, and no, I’m not talking about Fifty Shades of Grey. Manolo Blahnik is the man responsible for this sexual revolution with a pair of black pointed toe pumps as its catalyst. Say what you want about how black is ubiquitous in fashion, but there’s a good reason. It’s always hot and with these heavy chains? Forget about it! Ankle straps already guarantee sex appeal, but chain straps have even bigger connotations. There’s even a mini chain dangling from the pin-lock closure, reminding you that this isn’t an illusion – you’re literally shackled in! The flash of skin that the d’orsay style offers is just one more example of the power of suggestion (if you can pull the look off – slim feet are a must, which means my Shrek feet must stay away). You’re going to want to rock these shoes all season long, so if you’ve got what it takes, I say lock yourself up and throw away the key! Available at Bergdorf Goodman for $845.
