Does Amy Poehler have too-big shoes on or is she just a victim of bad angles?

The Parks and Recreation star was photographed at the 2019 Women In Film Annual Gala in such a way that widened her feet and made her Nike sneakers look like clown shoes.

We think it’s also a combination of the sneakers’ high-top cut and the long slits on Amy’s Max Mara pants.

In that case, Amy would also be a victim of bad proportions and poor posing.

Clown shoes aside, we love that Amy Poehler prefers to wear sneakers with pantsuits to her photo ops now. It’s such a boss lady power move.

Even Amy’s best friend and fellow boss lady Tina Fey is in on the sneakers-on-the-red-carpet trend.

Check out the 30 Rock writer and actress showing off to the cameras that she’s got on Converse Chuck Taylors at the Oscars.

We suspect the proportions were really the culprit in Amy’s bad fit in the pictures above. Amy had on a similar sneakers-with-a-pantsuit look at the 2019 PaleyFest LA yet looked a lot more streamlined in her orange tapered pants and low-cut white sneakers.

The 47-year-old comedienne also absolutely nailed another sporty-shoes-with-a-suit ensemble with the Stella McCartney ‘Sneak-Elyse’ platform sneakers.
