Jessica Alba is much more public about spending time with her family than other celebs, and she seems oddly undeterred by paparazzi attention. She brunches, she does playdates, she promotes The Honest Company, she makes office and juice runs and she seems generally content to live out her life in the public eye. Then again, so much of her public persona is vested in being a mom, so that all seems pretty on-brand for her.
She's at a point in her career where her fame is self-perpetuating, and that's a very comfy spot for a celeb to be in. Thus, her extremely comfy, casual shoe game. Jessica loves flats and Birks far more than many of her A-list peers, but she can always up her evening game with a gorgeous pump or platform sandal.
Birkenstock Arizona Sandals
$160 via Barneys
Here she is wearing a pair of white Birkenstock Arizonas while enjoying the sun with her fam in Malibu. Jessica has played a large role in making Birks celeb-appropriate in recent years.
Birkenstock Monterey Sandals
$225 via Barneys
She also likes these black-on-black Birkenstock Montereys. If you're not an ardent Birks lover, you might not realize that there is a very real need for a fully black Birk in one's Birk-centric summer wardrobe. Jessica wore these Birks to a friend's house in Studio City.
Iro Dankin Boots
Shop Iro via Shopbop
Here's Jessica leaving lunch at Petrossian in West Hollywood in a pair of unique, grey suede Iro Dankin Boots. We've seen her wear these angular short boots with several different outfits, so she's clearly a huge fan.
Jenni Kayne d'Orsay Flats
$495 via Jenni Kayne
Jessica is also had a hand in the d'Orsay flat trend. She has worn these Jenny Kayne flats religiously for years, and she owns at least half a dozen pairs at any given time. This attractive croc-embossed black leather version is particularly practical.
Kurt Geiger Bond Pumps
Of course, Jessica Alba's life is not all Birks and cute flats. When it's time to do her A-list celeb duty, she brings her A game. Here she is wearing a gorgeous pair of Kurt Geiger Bond Pumps while out for an evening with her husband in NYC.
Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps
$595 via Barneys
She paired pretty silver satin Manolo BBs with a lacey maxi dress and a grey cotton motorcycle jacket for a recent press appearance in Soho. This outfit is a great example of Jessica's unique celeb style.
Saint Laurent Candy Platform Sandals
$895 via Barneys
Jessica chose to wear these towering Saint Laurent platforms with an adorable floral Alice + Olivia dress for a 2016 Mother's Day outing the fam. Those sandals look fab, but I don't think she's getting anywhere fast.
Vince Varin Sneakers
$295 via Shopbop
Finally, here's Jessica in a pair of black and white Vince Varin Sneakers, taking her kids on a Beverly Hills playdate. It seems like our photo service gets a regular infusion of "Jessica Alba's children's playdates" pics several times a month.
