Lainey Wilson’s Shoe Style Over The Years: Red Prada Heels, Sky-High Platforms & More


More from Footwear News


Lainey Wilson rose to fame after her single, “Working Overtime” was featured on Paramount’s “Yellowstone” in 2019. Since then, the singer has achieved widespread popularity in the music industry. She has gone on to open for country stars like Morgan Wallen, headline her first tour, and receive several awards, including a Grammy for Best Country Album for her 2022 album, “Bell Bottom Country.” Wilson will continue her successful streak with a performance at the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards next week.

As Wilson’s career has progressed, the singer has become more experimental with her footwear choices. In the beginning, she slowly leaned into boho styling taking the stage in suede boots. Now, whether she is performing or attending a red carpet event, the singer takes every opportunity to slip into a height-boosting silhouette.

Her shoe closet is filled with various styles of leather platforms, hailing from top brands like Sam Edelman and Prada.

Here is a look at Lainey Wilson’s shoe style over the years.
