South By Southwest Celebrity Shoe Sightings

Leave it to Miley Cyrus to shock fans. The “Wrecking Ball” star crashed South by Southwest in Austin Thursday, jumping on stage during Mike Will Made-It’s set. And she did it all while rocking chunky platforms in a metallic hue, with stud details and all. The songstress also joined Future and later performed her hit “We Can’t Stop.”

SXSW kicked off its music festival Tuesday, starting the second half of the tech and culture festival. Already, big names from fashion, including Karlie Kloss, have been on hand as a part of the tech conference, but shoe brands are also getting in on the action.

Vans is hosting its House of Vans at the Mowhawk once again, with concerts and music showcases. Converse is also returning to the festival as a co-host of the Fader Fort.

In addition to the big names at SXSW, ranging from Spoon to Snoop Dogg, Converse and Vans are giving a big moment to upcoming bands as well. Like the music festival, the film portion of South By Southwest, continues through Saturday and already has garnered plenty of major shoe moments.

Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy reunited for the 30th anniversary of “The Breakfast Club.” Ringwald opted for colorful patterned pumps that were a fresh take for the red carpet.

Rose Byrne has appeared twice on the red carpet — first wearing Prabal Gurung and then Thakoon for two premieres. She channeled an autumn look, pairing her dresses with boots.

As the music kicks off, the tech portion of the festival is winding down today. It’s been a big week for connected-fitness conversations at the tech conference. The Apple Watch generated a lot of the buzz, but there were also more than 50 panels dedicated to wearable tech.

Karlie Kloss, looking her most tech-startup-appropriate in sneakers and a polo shirt, sat down last night to talk about how fashion has increasingly turns to mobile to make connections during Fashion Week.

Also on hand was Jessica Alba, talking about her environmentally conscious line “The Honest Company.”

Stay tuned as we watch to see who else make a shoe-worthy appearance this week.
