8 Times Pharrell Williams Wore Sneakers and Boots on the Red Carpet

If there’s one thing Pharrell Williams is known for when it comes to fashion, it’s that his style is never conventional.

Even for formal red-carpet events, Williams stays true to what he loves, especially footwear. When Williams arrives to the Golden Globes on Sunday, his outfit will be anyone’s guess. The singer and designer is nominated for Best Original Score — Motion Picture for his work with Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch on the film “Hidden Figures.”

Thanks to his collaborations with Adidas and Timberland, Williams has a closet full of cool kicks and boots that are usually way cooler than any conventional red carpet shoe. Here, we’re rounding up eight times Williams wore sneakers or boots on the red carpet.
