Celebrities are known for their bold fashion choices, however CBS morning host Gayle King raised some eyebrows with her latest shoe selection. So why did King rock two different shoes on the red carpet?
Why does King wear two different shoes?
King appeared on the red carpet for the Tribeca Film Festival wearing a blue and green stiletto heel and clogs with a pastel floral pattern. The foot with the clog also wore a gray ankle brace.
King was at the film festival to do a Q&A session with Tyler Perry, and the writer-director was quick to mention King’s eccentric shoe choices. “I love the shoes, Gayle,” Perry said. King replied, “I’ve got this thing called Achilles tendinitis, so it’s fine.”
Sharing the story, King continued, “Tyler says, ‘Why don’t you just put both clogs on?’ I say, ‘Because it’s fashion, Tyler. I don’t want people to think I’m just wearing these clogs. There’s a reason.’”

The morning show host then said that Perry joked that she just “wanted people to know that she had the shoes to match the dress.” King has been wearing the heel-and-clog combo for a while.
King’s Achilles tendonitis diagnosis
Walking the red carpet for the Hollywood reporter‘s Most Powerful People in Media event, King shared, “I went to bed on Saturday and woke up on Sunday to go pee and I don’t know what it is but the moment I hit the floor touched, I collapsed. I think that’s my Achilles.”
She later shared her doctor’s opinion on Instagram. “The diagnosis just came in, I’m here with Dr. Nadia Levy. What’s the diagnosis?” King said in a video. “Achilles tendinitis,” Levy explained, “and she needs to be in a boot just to calm her down and on some anti-inflammatories.”
When King said she “didn’t know what [she] done wrong,” Levy replied, saying she probably “just overwound a strained tendon.” King celebrated the good news, saying: “Yay, diagnosis and yay, no surgery! Yay yay yay yay.” It’s unknown how much longer we’ll see King rocking the heel-and-clog look, but fans of the morning show host are glad her Achilles problem isn’t serious.
