Katy Perry attended the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards wearing one of the footwear designs we here at Your Next Shoes find most offensive: shoes that come with built-in socks.

Yes, yes, we know that sock boots are a huge shoe trend. But instead of full socks, Katy’s shoes are a false illusion of white bobby socks worn with black mary janes.
To us, this is the equivalent of fake, unusable pockets on women’s jeans.

Unfortunately, the fakeness doesn’t end with the built-in socks shoes. Katy also used every moment of the awards show to hawk her new song, “365.”
Not only did she stay with song collaborator Zedd throughout the night, but she also awkwardly injected mentions of the song in her red carpet interviews.

To top it all off, the “Chained to the Rhythm” songstress wore nearly the exact same outfit she had on in the “365” music video.
The Paskal Fall 2018 vinyl-overlay gingham dress, the Secrets in Lace ‘Retro Bullet’ bra in blue, the Teale Coco ‘Devil’s Talon’ thumbless gloves, the black plastic headband, and the vintage lucite earrings are all seen on Katy in the music vid.

The only thing Katy changed were the shoes. The silver booties she had on in the video were most likely not from Katy Perry’s shoe brand and were switched for the ‘Isobella’ stretch-knit booties.
You’ll see the full outfit at 0:45 in the video below.
We’ve always enjoyed Katy Perry’s bizarre red carpet looks but she is just advertising to us at every angle here.
