Julia Roberts Just Wore My Favorite Comfy Shoe Brand Back-to-Back


Attention everyone: This is not a drill. Julia Roberts just wore one of my favorite footwear brands back to back — and her exact shoes are still in stock. What brand am I talking about anyway? Vivaia. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because celebrities like Katie HolmesSelena GomezScarlett Johansson, and more have donned the brand. And now, we get to add Roberts to the list.

Julia Roberts Just Wore My Favorite Comfy Shoe Brand Back-to-Back


Last week, the actress styled a pair of Vivaia’s Tara Pro knee-high boots for her Leave the World Behind press tour. Currently available for as low as $169 for select colors, the water-resistant boots feature a square toe, short heel, and a slip-resistant rubber sole. Roberts wore a black silhouette, though you can also purchase these shoes in navy, maroon, gray, and brown.

I own these boots in the chocolate hue, and can attest to their peak style. I like to wear them with skirts, dresses, and leggings — like Roberts — since the calf circumference is rather slim. The high, wool shaft keeps me warm on the coldest of days, while the water-repellant material keeps my toes dry on the rainiest of days. 

But Roberts is so much of a Vivaia fan, that she wore the brand again. Just today, she reached for the Melissa boots in light gray, completing her sleek outfit. Unlike the Tara Pro boots, these include a short 5-inch shaft, which are perfect for wearing with bulkier jeans or when you want to show a bit more leg. The low rise additionally makes the Melissa boots ideal for year-round wear, and not just the winter season. The heel is also taller, boasting a 2-inch height, while the upper includes a hollowed-out design for increased airflow and flexibility.    

While both of the Roberts-worn Vivaia boots are greatly different, they both include two very important features: increased comfort and stretchy material. I’ve worn my own Vivaia boots all around New York City for hours; I’ve scaled stairways, chased after trains, and danced the night away with zero discomfort, aches, or pains. I’ve even worn the shoes straight out of their boxes and didn’t get a single blister. It’s all thanks to the flexible material, which promotes roomy toe boxes and a silhouette that molds to your unique foot shape.
