Celebrities are well-known for their striking fashion choices. CBS Mornings Host Gayle KingKing’s latest shoe choices have been raising eyebrows. King has been wearing two different shoes on red carpet.
Why are King and Queen wearing two different shoes?
King wore one pastel-patterned clog and one blue andgreen stiletto heel while appearing on red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival. Gray ankle brace was worn by the foot wearing the clog.
King was at the film festival to do a Q&A session with Tyler Perry, and the writer and director was quick to mention King’s eccentric footwear choice. “I’m loving the shoes, Gayle,” Perry. King replied, “I have this thing called Achilles tendonitis, so it’s all good.”
King recounted the story. “Tyler goes, ‘Why don’t you just put on both clogs?’ I go, ‘Because it’s fashion, Tyler. I don’t want people thinking I’m wearing these clogs just because. There’s a reason.’”

Perry laughed and said that Perry was joking that she just “wanted people to know she had the shoes to match the dress.”King has worn the heel-and clog combination for some time now.
King’s Achilles Tendonitis Diagnosis
As the red carpet was being laid for the ceremony, Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful People in Media event, King shared, “I went to bed on Saturday, and I woke up Sunday to go pee, and I don’t know what it is, but the minute I touched the floor, I crumbled. I think it’s my Achilles.”
She later shared her doctor’s opinion on Instagram. “Diagnosis just in, I am here with Dr. Nadia Levy. What’s the diagnosis?”King spoke in a video. “Achilles tendonitis,”Levy explanation “And she’s going to have to be in a boot just to calm it down and on some anti-inflammatories.”
When King said she “didn’t know what [she] did wrong,”Levy responded that she most probably “just over-tweaked a tight tendon.”King celebrated the good news by saying: “Yay, diagnosis, and yay, no surgery! Yay yay yay yay.” It’s unknown how long we’ll keep seeing King rock the heel-and-clog look, but fans of the morning show host are glad that her Achilles issue is not serious.
