Celebrities have a knack for dressing really well at the airport, something I'm constantly trying to decode. I've done quite a bit of research on how to mirror their always sleek, never fussy travel ensembles (this nine-piece capsule is a great place to start), but every time I come across a celeb wearing a certain shoe style at the airport, it always makes me slightly uncomfortable. I don't think I'll ever be able to understand how they can manage to make it through security and trek across the terminal while wearing high stilettos.
Sure, the shoe style is undeniably flattering and makes even a pair of sweats look elevated (Rihanna can attest), but I just can't imagine that wearing a pair of four-inch (or higher) heels is worth the potential pain. Certainly not when I realize how many shoe alternatives there are that are equally as stylish and 10 times more comfortable to wear to the airport.
Now that we've covered what not to wear to the airport, it's time for you to discover the shoes that make me smile from ear to ear when I see them. Keep reading to get inspired by the best shoes to wear to the airport, courtesy of the chicest celebrity outfits.
