Gwen Stefani: Men look hot in sneakers

Singer Gwen Stefani is faced with a billion shoe choices when she films The Voice.

No Doubt star Gwen Stefani is hoping her next man wears sneakers.

The blonde singer recently split with husband Gavin Rossdale after 12 years of marriage. While it's not thought she's dating anyone right now, Gwen, who is a clothes and shoe designer alongside her singing career, knows exactly what footwear she wants her next boyfriend to rock.

"A guy can never go wrong in a straight-up sneaker," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "Like, a converse would always make me happy, or Vans. I like sneakers on guys."

For her own choice of shoes, the 46-year-old tends to favour a pair of towering heels. That's not always been the case though, and she originally started wearing high shoes as she wanted to look like a pinup girl.

Her pop star credentials meant she was an obvious choice to become a mentor on the US version of The Voice. Gwen wows with her outfit choices on the show and also takes pride in the shoes she wears. Quite often it will be a pair from her own collection.

"For The Voice, I wear whatever goes with the outfit, and there's about 10,000 outfits and about a billion choices of shoes," she laughed. "I always love to wear something from my collection if it works. I’ve worn L.A.M.B. and GX, but if not, I am a big fan of a Louboutin.

"I've worn every shoe imaginable in the studio. Recently I've been going with more of a regular, hip-hop tennis shoe. Usually it's a pair of L.A.M.B. sneakers."

When it comes to the design process of her shoes, Gwen tends to think about what footwear she needs or wishes she had. As Gwen's L.A.M.B. line offers everything from clothes to bags, the singer tends to try and picture a whole outfit together during the creation stage.

"I also always go back to the same inspiration; there’s always a tribal element, some modern tomboy mixed with old-school glamour, and some architectural elements," she added.
