Footwear News reports on Billy Porter's appearance at the BET Awards in an eye-catching outfit including a pair of Rick Owens' Kiss boots, now one of the definitive styles in the men's heels world.
From the article:
"The “Cinderella” actor’s asymmetrical skirt gave way to platform boots in the same shade of gray that featured a chunky clear heel and a futuristic square toe design. He completed the look with some rings, an updo and dark eye makeup."
"Porter has a history of hitting the red carpet in vibrant colors, vivid prints and fun hats. He’s also known for his collaboration with Jimmy Choo, which offers extended sizing."
Billy Porter has long been a champion of heels for men since his starring role as Lola in the broadway production of Kinky Boots and while the association with boots being Kinky doesn't hold up for everyone, we applaud Billy's ground breaking, flamboyant style.

From the article:
"the party truly started when Johannes, who is dancing with comedian Ellie Taylor this year, stormed out in a pair of killer red boots, pleather trousers, and a Prince-style wig."
"Not only did he strut down that stage like the runway model he deserves to be, but he proceeded to give us some chair action with high kicks and sassy facial expressions."
featuring these reactions from Twitter fans: "Johannes dancing in heels is one of my favourite things in the world."
"Oh my – Johannes in an Afro wig and high heeled boots. I am SO here for that."
"Johannes is in red stiletto boots. Something has gone right in the world for once."
Let's hope there's more like this on Strictly in the future!
