The 59-year-old Actors' Equity Association President was unable to wear high heels due to a recent surgery.

On Saturday, Shields shared a post on Instagram showing her feet all wrapped up in bandages after a double toe operation.

"I got my Crocs! I couldn't do this in heels!" Shields told People Magazine at the awards, echoing the sentiment in other red carpet interviews.

The yellow rubber shoes are actually somewhat hard to notice at first since they perfectly match the actor's sunny yellow dress!

Shields didn't want to hide the Crocs, though, proudly showing off her shoes to photographers and interviewers.
