The Oscars is one of Hollywood’s biggest glam nights — from dazzling red carpet dresses to brilliant beauty looks, stars always pull out their most extravagant showstoppers for the awards show. While we were drooling over some of the most gorgeous gowns of the night (hello, Kendall Jenner’s sky-high slit dress), we also noticed a handful of celebs traded in their heels for more comfy (and actually affordable!) shoe options for the Vanity Fair After Party.

Most notably: Melissa McCarthy’s full-on athleisure look, complete with an Adidas tracksuit and pair of black Nike Classic Cortez sneakers, caught our attention. Others celebs like Tina Fey went for a comfy-chic ensemble, pairing a sparkly designer dress with the popular white Converse Chuck Taylors, while Sarah Silverman wore a black tuxedo with a pair of patent leather combat boots.

Frances McDormand, who presented the award for Best Actress, even rocked a pair of custom neon yellow Birkenstocks the entire evening — so relatable. And unlike the normally pricey stilettos that come strutting down the red carpet, these awards show shoes are actually budget-friendly! Keep scrolling to shop the sneakers and slides celebs wore at the Oscars (and a very similar pair of patent leather boots) — no red carpet required.
