One thing is for sure. If I were a celebrity, I would relish in the ability to explore boundary-pushing style. Being part of the upper echelons of Hollywood means not only having the wealth to buy, but easy, direct access to coolest designs of the moment. It’s no wonder I am always on the lookout for outrageous celebrity outfits that bring about some controversy. Lately, it seems, that the shoes are what tend to grab the headlines.

In 2022, it very much felt like the year of the thought-provoking shoe, especially of the platform variety—how anyone can walk in the style without falling is beyond me. I rounded up 15 of the more memorable moments that span sky-high pink platforms to sandals with runny yolks (I’m serious) to statement knee-high boots. Keep scrolling to see which celebrities pushed the envelope this year when it comes to the shoe department.
