lock-and-key-shoes.jpgOn a day of hearts and flowers, we're focusing on finding the most romantic shoes out there - and these lock and key flats from Pretty Ballerinas have got to be some of the sweetest and downright sexiest we've seen on our travels. Made with all the care and attention to detail you'd expect from a brand that has elevated the status of the flat shoe to far loftier places recently, and we think they're ideal for a no-pressure Valentine's stay-at-home meal for two...

Of course, you'll be able to wear a style like this long after V-Day is over, and they'd add an interesting talking-point to almost any casual or dressy outfit we can think of. Wear them with your tight jeans for a pop of quirky colour or with a little black or red cocktail dress: they're a great choice for anyone who prefers to avoid heels but still wants to dress up a little.

If you like these shoes, they're available from Forzieri for £190 in red or black patent.
