From Mom Mules to Uggs: The Shoes Katie Holmes Loves

When it comes to footwear, Katie Holmes isn’t afraid to experiment — but she also has her old standbys.

As a New Yorker, the 40-year-old actress is often out and about in the streets. In cooler weather, she likes to keep cozy in shearling-lined Ugg boots ($160 from Nordstrom.com). The sheepskin boots are a favorite for teaming with sweats on early morning winter coffee runs.

In warmer weather, Holmes is a big proponent of open-toed silhouettes. She stepped out several times in Gianvito Rossi high-heeled thong sandals ($695 on Net-a-Porter.com) this summer.

Thong high heels aren’t everyone’s cup of tea — the style went away by the mid ’00s and is thought by many to be “ugly.” Nonetheless, the ’90s favorite has made a comeback this year, this time with a sleeker silhouette.

The mother and daughter duo had lunch together at a Downtown Soho restaurant and they later walked and spent more than 2 hours shopping and browsing the local shops in the Soho neighborhood. At one point Suri is seen sharing her drink with her mother and finally ended their outing by hailing a Taxi together. 27 Aug 2019 Pictured: Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise.

Holmes has favored another ’90s comeback: the mom mule. She has a black leather Acne Studios pair (available on Mytheresa.com for $480) that she likes to team with jeans for a look straight out of the pre-Y2K years.

When it comes to sneakers, the “Dawson’s Creek” alum is a big fan of her Alexander McQueen oversize sole shoes. The white sneakers feature a platform for a boost of height and an iridescent tab at the back for a metallic pop; they can be purchased on Farfetch.com for $530.
