This Is Why Celebrities Wear Shoes That Are Too Big For Them

If you've ever wondered why...

You have likely seen at some point in your life, a celebrity teetering around on their tippy toes, wearing shoes that are clearly too big for them.

In fact, many Hollywood stars deliberately choose to grace the red carpet wearing heels that are too long or too wide for them. They just know the simple secret: by doing so, they will prevent their feet from swelling and forming blisters. After all, celebrities have to wear high heels for hours — sometimes all night. Obviously, their feet will swell.

To avoid discomfort, foot pain, and chronic foot issues later in life, celebrities choose to wear shoes that are at least one size too big. Moreover, large pumps or sandals won’t rub, pinch, or squeeze because they don’t put pressure on the most vulnerable areas of the feet.

To keep shoes that are too large from slipping off the feet at the worst possible moment, stylists just put silicone pads inside the pumps. This simple trick ensures that the shoe fits snugly but stays on the foot, does not restrict blood circulation, and stops feet from swelling. Double-sided tape is another secret tool used by celebrities. It also helps too-big shoes stay on your feet all night long.

Of course, most often celebrities wear pumps that don’t fit properly with maxi dresses when the hem covers the shoes. However, today this trick has almost become a trend, so a lot of Hollywood stars don’t even bother to hide their little secret from the public.
