Sam Smith felt “so good” wearing heels to an industry event for the first time, at the GQ Men of the Year Awards
The 27-year-old singer donned a pair of heeled boots for the annual awards ceremony held at the Tate Modern in London on Tuesday, 4 September – the first time he has worn heels to a red-carpet event.
Sam – who paired his boots with a black lace shirt and a classic black tux – feels so happy to have been able to wear the footwear without fear of prejudice.
Posting a picture of the boots on Instagram, he wrote: “Tonight I wore heels for the first time to an award show. I’ve just got home from a gorgeous evening and as I was walking to my front door I stopped and listened to my heels clonking against the floor. And I just thought ‘F**K YES’!!
“There was a time where I thought I’d never ever ever be able to be myself like this in front of the industry or anyone. It feels so good and I just wanted to share that with you all, and share a picture of my GORJ Gucci heels. They’ll always be my virgin heels (sic)” (article continues below) Other All4Women readers liked…

In June, he posted a picture on Instagram of himself wearing a pair of platforms made by SYRO, a brand that specifically makes heels in men’s sizes.
He captioned that picture: “I have ALWAYS wanted to find a heel I could wear everyday to the shops. dream come true!! I love you @shopsyro (sic)”
Sam’s bold platform boots were Syro’s Golfo silhouette, a squared-toed bootie in black patent that retails for $230 (R3 400) and is available in size eight to 14.
