Viola Davis Swaps Sandals for Silver Platform Sneakers at 2019 Emmy Awards

Viola Davis made a shoe statement onstage at the Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles last night — swapping out high heels for sneakers.

For the step and repeat, the 54-year-old actress went with a classic red carpet shoe: platform sandals from Stuart Weitzman. The shoes just barely poked out from underneath her black-and-white Alberta Ferretti dress. Forevermark diamonds completed the look.

Onstage, however, Davis decided to give her feet a break, choosing Hogan sneakers — albeit with a little extra height — as she handed out one of the evening’s statuettes.

Hogan was one of the first luxury labels to take on sneakers, launching a high-end version in the ’80s. The brand showed its spring ’20 collection, focused on nature, at Milan Fashion Week this month.
