Hosted by Reba McEntire, the annual award show honors the country music industry’s artists and respective accomplishments from the previous year. The ceremony is typically held in April or May, and includes performances and appearances from country music icons, as well as genre-bending musicians. First starting in 1966 and now operating through Dick Clark Productions, this year’s ceremony features appearances from the likes of Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, Jelly Roll and more.

Springsteen’s clear pointed pumps were a departure from the relaxed sneaker styles the musician typically chooses for her performances and high-profile events.

This past September, the star attended the 2023 People’s Choice Awards at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville wearing a pair of platform sneakers. The shoes were crafted with leather and rubber material, and elevated by a black and white colorway. The model was completed by a thick outsole that added an inch of height. For the NSAI 2022 Nashville Songwriter Awards held the year prior, Springsteen opted for a pair of New Balance sneakers that featured a cream colorway alongside a red lining. A breathable rubber upper and outsole rounded out the shoe, which also boosted a padded midsole for comfort and a laceless design.

About the Shoes

Springsteen attended the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards in a clear see-through pair of open-toe pointed sandals characterized by a gold contrast. The upper portion of the shoes was constructed with a blend of PVC and polycarbonate material. Also across the upper was a clear thick strap located across the toe box. The outsole of the sandals featured TPU material, with the silhouette being completed by a heel height measuring roughly 4-inches.

Many brands such as Stuart Weitzman and Gianvito Rossi offer variations of a clear pointed-toe pump.

About pointed-toe shoes

Pointed-toe pumps are regarded as a preferred shoe for red carpets and formal occasions. Various designers including Burberry and Stuart Weitzman offer pointed-toe models regularly as a part of their catalog. The popularity of the slim and chunky stiletto heels with an angular toe-box has started to re-emerge again in the 2020s. In 2024, the style trended on an upward swing with stylists recommending pointed shoes to achieve simple and classic looks for spring and summer. It is expected to continue to be a major trend throughout the remainder of 2024.
