Ariana Grande kicked off her “Sweetener” world tour on Monday in a series of sky-high shoes that some entertainers wouldn’t deem wearable for dancing and performing.
Ariana Grande wears custom boots by Giuseppe Zanotti on her “Sweetener” tour.
Her footwear ranged from Pleaser heels to parachute boots from L.A. streetwear brand Unravel to several custom pairs from Italian luxury brand Giuseppe Zanotti.
When asked if he did anything special for Grande’s footwear that he hasn’t done with previous artists, Zanotti said that Grande’s footwear in his soaring heels is the most impressive he’s seen. “Musicians and dancers usually require chunkier and lower heels to feel more secure on stage. Ariana is one of the only talents to perform with ease in skyscraper platforms.”
The songbird paired a set of the boots with a custom Versace dress, as seen on the brand’s Instagram.
Grande is in good company among stage veterans like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and more artists who have had his bespoke footwear on tour.
