Ariana Grande Sacrificed Expensive Boots For The Sake Of Her VMA Performance

Her shoes suffered for her art

Ariana Grande made cycling while singing look so easy at the 2016 VMAs — we almost didn't notice she was doing it in five-inch heels.

While it might've looked like NBD, the shoes she wore in rehearsal tell a different story.

In the only successful use of Snapchat Memories I've seen yet, Ariana shared a video showing us "how fucked up [her] Alaïa boots are from rehearsing the cycling." Indeed! They are definitely fucked up.

What are a few deep scuffs to $1,400 boots, though, when the final product is this good?
