The 2017 South African Music Awards (SAMAs) weekend was as glamourous and crazy as ever! Our favourite celebrities turned heads with their performances and their red-carpet shoe choices. They stepped-out in some glorious footwear and have set shoe trends we’ll be following for 2017. Want shoes that are red-carpet ready? Let these celebs show you what’s hot…

Take Notes from Somizi and Wear Bold Boots

The MC and SA Idols judge was hosting this year’s awards and has been declared the highlight of the 2017 SAMAs (even by frenemy Bonang Matheba). But it wasn’t just his high-voltage performance as MC that was memorable – Somizi’s sexy thigh-high bling studded boots put most of the ladies attending footwear’ to shame! Long boots are big this winter so follow Somizi’s lead and get yourself some boots that will make you look and feel fierce.

Glow like Pearl Thusi in Satin Point-Toe Heels

Pearl was the absolute embodiment of class and femininity! Her barely there jewel encrusted dress hugged her curves in all the right places and was daring without being tacky. To complete the look were a pair of gorgeous, but subtle nude pointed-toe heels with a satin finish. High-heels like these are a must have because they’re perfect for glamourous occasions and will also work perfectly with more low-key outfits.

Work Strappy Heels Like Lerato Kganyago

Brand new host of The Bridge on Metro FM set fire to the SAMAs in a whimsical and sexy cocktail dress. She looked amazing in one of 2017’s biggest heel trends – heels with embellishments around the ankles. The lines created by the straps on her heels draw your eyes upward and makes her legs seem longer. The lace around the ankle is fun, but her choice of heel allows her dress to take centre stage.

Let Khanyi Mbau Show You How to Rock Stilettos

The queen of controversy and TV personality worked the SAMAs with multiple outfit changes. However, the outfit that stood out the most was a very sheer dress, coupled with ornate white stilettos. The heels complemented her show stopper dress and wearing them gave her enough height so that the length of the dress didn’t overwhelm her.

Follow Lootlove’s Lead: Step Out in Edgy Shoes

Luthando Shosha SLAYED at the 2017 SAMAS! The Metro FM DJ’s black leather dress with red detail fitted her like a glove and was super edgy. Only Lootlove could pull off this punk/goth vibe and just look radiant. She didn’t skimp in the shoe department either – her heels were totally on point. She wore barely there see-through Perspex inspired strappy stilettos, which are incredibly popular right now. You can always get added wow-factor by swapping traditional high-heels for a fun alternative.
