When it comes to red carpet footwear, pricey styles from brands like Christian Louboutin and Giuseppe Zanotti are de rigueur.
But Aldo — a brand with shoes retailing under $100 — is a more affordable alternative that’s picked up its fair share of red carpet traction.
At the 2019 Golden Globes on Jan. 6, Lupita Nyong’o made best-dressed lists with her stylish ensemble: an electric blue Calvin Klein gown with silver fringe detailing. But the “Black Panther” actress also was in the headlines for her shoe choice — soaring silver Aldo sandals that are on sale for under $50.
Nyong’o is not the first star to opt for Aldo footwear at the Golden Globes. In 2016, Olivia Wilde wore a glistening burgundy Michael Kors with a sensual slit. The “House” actress paired the dress with ankle-strap Aldo sandals in the same shade of burgundy.
And even Aldo’s flat sandals have made it onto the red carpet. While high heels are the norm for formal events, Gal Gadot is never one to play by the rules.
The star stepped out to the 2017 Los Angeles premiere of “Wonder Woman” wearing a sparkly red floor-length gown with cut-out detailing. As Gadot lifted up her gown to enter the event, she revealed a pair of flat Aldo sandals underneath — which retailed for a budget-friendly $50.
