Hand-crafted in a square-toe design, the sandals are made with leather and feature a double-toe strap throughout the upper alongside raw-cut straps crossed at the ankle with a small side buckle. The shoes also boast a two-level leather sole for added thickness and a leather insole with light padding at the toe for extra comfort. The silhouette is completed by a chunky block heel measuring 3.5 inches.

The “Grownish” actress finished her look with a slightly oversized tan blazer, which she paired with a matching tank and shorts underneath. Wearing a glam makeup look with dark eyeshadow and a neutral lip, Shahidi let her curls loose in a middle-part style.

The 24-year-old has been choosing luxurious footwear looks for her appearances as of late. Earlier this month, she attended the Cameron Boyce Foundation’s 3rd Annual Cam for a Cause Gala in Los Angeles in a pair of chocolate brown pointed-toe pumps that featured dark brown glossy uppers, accompanied by 2 to 3-inch stiletto heels.

For the special screening of “Peter Pan & Wendy” at the South Street Seaport Museum in New York, Shahidi stepped out in silver knee-high boots with metallic uppers, crosshatched embossing and a square-toe construction atop sizable wedge heels.

That same month, she attended the world premiere of “Peter Pan & Wendy” at The Curzon Mayfair in London wearing Alexander McQueen’s pin heels, which she paired with a gown from the brand that included a high neckline, symmetrical cutouts on the bodice and a fringe skirt.
