Not all superheroes wear capes. Some, like Gal Gadot, wear flat shoes.
The “Wonder Woman” star has almost exclusively worn flat or nearly flat shoes to promote her record-breaking, widely praised film. She’s been spotted in fancy Louboutins, sporty-looking sneakers and, most wonderfully, a pair of flat sandals she wore to the film’s Hollywood premiere.
I want to create this trend of doing red carpets in flats.” “I love wearing high heels – I think it’s beautiful, it’s sexy, whatever. But at the same time, especially stilettos, it puts us out of balance. We can fall any minute. It’s not good for our backs. Why do we do it?”
The star of Wonder Woman suffered a back sprain last week, but that’s not why she made the decision to ditch her heels. “By the way, I can wear stilettos. I can wear high heels. It’s not like I can’t wear it because of my back. But I was like, ‘Let’s go all the way. Let’s wear flats!’ I’ve been waiting for this moment.”
Gadot’s doctor had cleared her to wear whatever she felt good in, she says. “But considering my back I figured it wouldn’t be a good idea. And also, I just wanted to be comfortable! It’s the biggest premiere of my life.”
My kind of girl, Gal Gadot
