Okay, so Lauren Cohan didn’t really put the safety pins on her shoes herself — they are part of the design. But because the shoes are made of satin, it’s easy to mistake the style as DIY. See for yourself in the following pictures of The Walking Dead’s Maggie at Spike TV’s 2014 Guys’ Choice Awards on Saturday:

Actually, now that we think of it, it would be a whole lot cooler if Lauren did DIY her safety pin sandals. It would add to the long list of reasons why she’s a kick-ass chick and why she was nominated for the Jean Claude Gahd Dam award (which she ended up winning, by the way).

Other stars we’ve seen rock these same shoes include Sandra Bullock, Jaime King, and Emilia Clarke, who, incidentally, all happen to be cool chicks. We think it’s no coincidence that all of these ladies were drawn to these sandals — the safety pins just spell out cool, punk, and sexy.
