Celebrities with uncomfortable heels who would have been better off barefoot

Celebrities with uncomfortable heels who would have been better off barefoot

Take a look at some of the most uncomfortable shoes that have ever been seen on the red carpet that will make your own feet hurt in sympathy.

The first part of a celebrity that steps onto the red carpet is, well, the part they're stepping with. More often than not, female celebrities are rocking some of the most insanely high heels that look almost impossible to walk with, but they pull it off somehow.

We're always intrigued by how they manage to fit everything into those dresses, but sometimes, it's a greater struggle to fit their feet into their shoes, and this can lead to some barely visible wardrobe malfunctions that are more painful than they are embarrassing. Read on to see some of the most uncomfortable footwear that has ever been worn by a celebrity.

Britney Spears

The pop diva has had a lot of iconic looks over the years, but not all of them have been for good reasons. More often than not, Britney has been caught with her toes spilling out of her too-small heels, whether they are closed-toe or open-toed shoes.

These Christian Louboutin pumps that she wore to the MTV VMAs looked incredibly painful, as she was unable to squeeze her feet completely into the shoes, unintentionally giving a few toes a little more sunlight and air than they needed.

Kim Kardashian

Back in 2013, Kim Kardashian was very much the social media sensation that she is today, and she was carrying Kanye West's child, North West. Her husband planned her wardrobe during the pregnancy and encouraged her to wear more practical clothes that also highlighted her baby bump, a move that she said gave her more confidence.

Unfortunately, Kim didn't really account for the sudden weight gain and swollen feet that being pregnant can bring, and she unwisely decided to wear these stilettos that seemed to be slowly squeezing the life out of her feet. We can only hope she took these off not long after this picture was taken, because that looks painful to walk in.

Julianne Moore

Like Kim, Julianne Moore's 2013 would be remembered as the year she had an unfortunate show malfunction at Cannes when she captured with one of her toes sticking out of the heels she had worn to the star-studded event.

The actress spoke to Jimmy Fallon after the incident and said, "I was comfortable with my shoes, and I went and watched the movie, but then I went online to see a picture. And what did I see, but toe-gate!"

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez turned heads and made jaws drop with her dress as she worked the red carpet at the American Music Awards show in November 2014. Her dazzling shoes were equally mesmerizing, and her ensemble really made her stand out.

Unfortunately, they also made her stand out in a less than appealing way as her heels may have been a size or two too big for her, and they chafed against the sides of her feet turning them a reddish hue. She must have had quite the uncomfortable night in those heels.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock had quite the bold look as she rocked a pair of heels that were open only in the middle. Her Charlotte Olympia 'Daphne' pumps were the focus of the night at the premiere of her blockbuster film 'Gravity' in London. The actress was close to 50 at the time and stunned everyone with her ageless looks and classy fashion.

The shoes, on closer examination, seemed to be hiding a painful secret. The meaning of the phrase "peep-toe" really comes through in these pictures as her big toes seem like they're clamoring for more room. No one should be this uncomfortable on their big night.

Jessica Simpson

In November 2015, Jessica Simpson stepped out with her husband Eric Johnson in New York City in a stylish mini dress. However, what grabbed the attention was her shoes. She was clearly in love with these shoes as she just had to wear them whether they fit her properly or not.

The celebrity seemed to be oblivious to the fact that her toes were hanging out of her heeled sandals and dragging along on the ground, though she surely must have felt it touch the hard asphalt. This was certainly not the most flattering look for Simpson.

Heidi Klum

As a former supermodel, Heidi Klum should be accustomed to wearing extraordinarily uncomfortable, ill-fitted clothes that are designed more to be displayed than to be worn, and we're sure she's had her fair share of shoe issues. You'd think that she'd be more aware of what fits and what doesn't.

On the contrary, she still has her 'heel no' moments, as can be seen in these pictures of her at an 'America's Got Talent' event that she attended in 2015. Her long toes were spilling out of her golden heeled sandals, and a size bigger might have saved her toes from feeling the ground.
