The “About Damn Time” singer is known for her bold and eclectic footwear styling for high-profile events. This past October, Lizzo shared a series of snaps via Instagram of her wearing a pair of Chanel shoes that featured a slip-on construction with breezy open toes and thick straps. The footwear fell under the category of the “Ugly Sandals” trend, as it was marked by large straps and an oversized chunky construction that prioritized comfort and foot support.

Earlier that year, the artist performed at a Tennessee concert in chunky combat boots that included lace-up black uppers with silver eyelets, rounded toes and thick soles. Lizzo tends to prefer Stuart Weitzman, Staud and Jimmy Choo when it comes to her formal footwear, and Prada for her boot selections. When not in boots or embellished pumps and sandals, you can usually find the musician in sneakers and cozy slides.
