And the worst red carpet shoes of 2016 Tony Awards goes to (drum roll please): Keltie Knight’s nude sandals. The shoe style is one of a dozen boring strap sandals which have been repeatedly made appearance on the red carpet for the past three years, and she still can’t get them in the right size. Her toes are all hanging out of the insole, as if the shoes are too small. But actually the reason for such awful look is because these shoes are about one size too big for her feet.

The circumference of the front strap can not hold the foot in the right place since it’s too big. The feet would slide forward more than they should. So Rule No. 1 for the red carpet shoes: make sure the shoes are in your size! And Rule No. 2 is hiring a stylist with creativity, especially when it comes to the shoe selection.



Keltie Knight’s nude sandals are the worst red carpet shoes of 2016 Tony Awards. They are not only boring, out of date but also fit terribly.
