Brooke Shields Wears Crocs Shoes to Tony Awards

Brooke Shields chose to forgo the standard red carpet shoe attire at Sunday’s Tony Awards — for a good reason.

Ditching the typical high-heeled attire associated with such high-profile events, the actress wore clogs-style Crocs under her yellow dress. The shoes were the same color as her sequined gown. She showed off the shoes to photographers on Sunday night.

“I got my Crocs! I couldn’t do this in heels!” she said in a red carpet interview with People on Sunday.

The reason for the comfort attire? A day before the Tonys, Shields noted on Instagram that she was recovering from “double foot toe surgery.” The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to her reps for additional information.

It’s not the first time Shields has matched clogs with high fashion. In 2008, she was spotted wearing a long hot-pink gown with matching clogs.

Last month, Shields was elected president of the Actors’ Equity Association, the union that represents about 51,000 actors and stage managers on Broadway and nationwide.

She beat out Erin Maureen Koster, a stage manager and third vp at Actors’ Equity, and Wydetta Carter, an actor who had been serving as Equity’s first vp. Shields will serve a four-year term.

“I promise to lead with strength and compassion, and I will stand up for you and command the respect that we deserve as an acting community,” Shields wrote on Instagram following the vote. “Also to those who ran, I did not run against you, I ran with you and for you. I look forward to listening to you.”
