Ervio has been owning the shoe game lately in tall platform boots. At a “Wicked” press tour date at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on April 10, she wore emerald satin thigh-high platform sock boots nodding to her green-skinned character in the film. Her footwear is almost always bold. At the Fashion Trust U.S. Awards 2024 on April 9 she wore leopard-print pointed-toe heels. At Louis Vuitton’s Paris Fashion Week show in March, she donned smooth black leather thigh-high platform boots.

Patent Leather Shoes

Patent leather is leather that has been glazed or polished to withstand water and give it a lustrous shine. The name comes from the fact that the process of creating patent leather was recognized by the British patent office in the late 1700s. Commonly used in dress shoes and heels, patent leather today is sometimes coated with polyurethane.
