5 Shoe Types to Wear to a Movie Premier

Welcome to April all ye shoe lovers! We hope you are as excited as we are about this month.

April holds a lot of goodies for all most especially for all DC and Marvel fans as the world wide release of blockbusters such as Shazam and Avengers: End Game would be happening.

Speaking of premiers, what exactly is a premier and why do people rave so much about it.

A premiere or première is the debut (first public presentation) of a play, film, dance, or musical composition. Here the creme de la creme of the movie industry are invited to come see the newest movie to be added to the industry’s archive . The cast and crew members of the movie too get to see the finished project they took on. It is usually a tuxedo event for the men and a gown event for the ladies and it depicts to the world the fashion prowess of an individual.

Over the years, the fashion rules have evolved most especially the shoe choices as more shoes have been found to be more red carpet worthy.

The idea behind a red carpet look is to look chic, look classy, elegant and at the same sophisticated. In all shoe choices, comfortability is key and these should reflect heavily in your choice.

This blog post is dedicated to all our movie lovers and those in the arts and it hopes to enlighten us all on the 5 shoe types to wear to a movie premier.

Let the red carpets roll!

  • Brogues

Although Brogues are of Scottish origins (thick Scottish brogue, aye!), they have soon turned out to be a red carpet favourite.

Brogues are great with suits and bring out the classic gentleman look. If you want to achieve that formal yet casual look, brogues are also an excellent choice.

To command that star-studded look on the red carpet, I recommend wearing a quarter brogue, preferably black, with the suit of your choice. At The Footwear Academy, we have an array of different designs and styles for brogues. Do take time out to check us out.

  • Pumps

We know that it’s an unwritten law for most ladies to wear heels on the red carpet. Pumps are great as they offer a sense of versatility to its users. So, you don’t have to be worried about wearing it only for events like a movie premier. They also offer tons of benefits to  you as they make one have a taller appearance which most times helps to boost one’s confidence. It also gives you a slimmer physique.

Have you gotten your pair of pumps for the next movie premier?

  • Monkstrap

This shoe is one with a lot history surrounding it. With deep ties to Europe, one can only conclude that you give off the air of royalty whenever you wear a pair of monk strap. Also known as monk shoes, this is a must have for every gentleman in his shoe dresser. The monk strap come in 2 different styles;

  • Single monk strap
  • Double monk strap

Both have the same effect on him who wears them. Wearing a stylish monk strap, sets you apart from the multitude attending the premier and it has the advantage of being a versatile pair of shoe too. So whether its a business meeting and a movie premier happening on that same day, monk strap got you covered.

  • Stiletto

These are much more higher in inches than pumps and come in different styles, designs and brands. This is a must see at the movie premier but only the brave can pull of wearing  very high stilettos.

They give shape to the calf muscles and also elongate the look of your legs to make you look leaner. This is  a must wear if you choose to wear a thigh high slit dress. Remember the trick to wearing comfortable stilettos are; to wear stilettos with adequate lift, shock absorbers and arch support for the feet. This would enable you enjoy the rest of the evening without having to stress your feet.

  • Oxford shoes

Although these are a must have for men in the finance sector, they can also be a showstopper at any red carpet event. This is because they are definitely a formal shoe, hence they readily offer the elegant look one seeks.

So, if you haven’t got any Oxfords yet, hit us up in the comments section below and you can be certain we would have one that suits you perfectly.
