Lady Gaga flies to Top Gun in buckled boots for ‘Hold My Hand’ video – Footwear News


Lady Gaga brought her own take on aviation apparel for her latest music video. The visuals, which drop at 9 a.m. Friday morning, are for his song “Hold My Hand” for the new movie “Top Gun: Maverick,” a sequel to the original 1986 movie “Top Gun.”

The Grammys Prime The musician shared a snippet of the upcoming video on social media. In the short visual, she can be seen strolling down the runway of an airplane in a flowing see-through dress. The beige piece, worn over black briefs for a sultry touch, featured a ruched bodice, plunging neckline and voluminous train. Gaga’s ensemble was complete with an olive green flight jacket, aviator sunglasses and dog tag collar – similar to the movie characters’ navy aviator uniforms.

“Fun fact: The original Top Gun came out in 1986, the year I was born,” the singer shared in the caption of an Instagram post.

Gaga’s shoes of choice were equally utilitarian: a pair of black leather boots. Her low-heeled style featured cinched uppers with wide straps, each secured with silver buckles. The ankle-high style was both fashion-forward and practical, completing her look with effortless flair.

Indeed, lug-soled, lace-up boots are one of today’s top footwear trends, bringing a sharp edge to utilitarian boot styles. Most pairs feature rounded toes and chunky ridged soles, as well as a lace-up or buckled silhouette. The style is a signature for Gaga when off duty, although stars like Olivia Palermo, Lorde and Jessica Alba have also worn Gianvito Rossi, Junya Watanabe and R13 pairs in recent weeks. More recently, Avril Lavigne and Olivia Rodrigo also paired up to coordinate lace-up pairs on the latter’s “Sour” tour.

Gaga is no stranger to slick shoes, recently wearing black pointy-toe pumps on numerous occasions during her Las Vegas residency at MGM Resorts.

When it comes to shoes, there’s no style too bold – or too high a heel – for Lady Gaga. The “Paparazzi” singer’s red carpet outfits often feature platform sandals and pointy-toe pumps from luxury brands such as Christian Louboutin, Versace, Brian Atwood and Alexander McQueen. When off duty, she has been seen in sneakers by APL and Nike. More recently, she has returned to wearing her towering Pleaser Shoes boots from the late 2000s for everyday use – which often have heels ranging from 7 to 9 inches in height.
