Celebrities make baffling fashion choices. They wear controversial shoes. They wear controversial pants. They wear controversial shirts. But without these controversial fashion moves, the celeb street-style scene would be bland. And don’t get us wrong: We are 100 percent here for these polarizing sartorial moments.
If we had to pick a single category that wins for most conversation-starting of all, we’d have to pick footwear, specifically sneakers. Celeb love wearing baffling kicks, like these Golden Goose low-tops that come straight out of the box with that worn-in, beat-up look, or these sky-high Stella McCartney platforms that are part brogues, part sneakers.
Oprah, Jessica Alba, Olivia Culpo, Taylor Swift, and Naomi Scott are just a few celebs who’ve taken to the streets (or to the stage) in these iconic platform sneakers. They feature a wooden platform sole with a rigged base and a lace-up front. The exterior is obviously eye-catching, but the interior is also worth noting, as you’ll find a lighted padded insole that makes them great for all-day wear.
This bold celeb-approved shoe doesn’t come cheap, and it rarely gets marked down. But thanks to a secret Rue La La designer sneaker sale that only you, dear readers, can shop, you can scoop up Stella McCartney’s famous brogue-sneaker hybrid for more than $200 off the original price.
