Recently, Thurman has been spotted in classic heels at events or sneakers while off-duty. At the Tom Ford fall 2024 fashion show during Milan Fashion Week in February, she wore another all-black look, elevated by t-strap stilettos with a large bow at the toe. At the Tory Burch fall 2024 New York Fashion Week show in February, she slid on classic black pointed-toe slingbacks with a kitten heel.

Rosanna Arquette, Phil LaMarr, Burr Steers, Eric Stoltz, Julia Sweeney and Frank Whaley also attended the opening night.

Uma Thurman’s Most Iconic Shoe

Uma Thurman reunited with director Quentin Tarantino in 2003 for “Kill Bill Vol. 1,” making another indelible mark on pop culture with her character’s yellow tracksuit and coordinating Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 sneakers. Last year, the “Kill Bill yellow” kicks saw a comeback in popularity along with a limited-edition anniversary reissue of the exact colorway she famously wore in the film.

Thong Sandals

Thong sandals feature a piece of material between the first and second toes, which acts as a source of security for the entire front of the shoe. They can either have an open back or feature an ankle-encircling strap for support. Flip-flops are the most popular and most casual type of thong sandal; however, some elevated styles may be constructed of leather or have stiletto heels.
