RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL: During Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour at Rio de Janeiro’s Nilton Santos Stadium on November 20, a single fan among the thousands in attendance received an unexpected souvenir.
The 33-year-old pop star had to take a break after the heel of her Christian Louboutin boots broke on stage. According to clips circulating on social media, Swift took off her heel and threw it into the crowd. And, apparently, it fell into the hands of one lucky person.

Louboutin’s classic red sole was completely absent from her sparkling knee-high boots as a man from the “Lover” set.
It is unclear how the heel broke. However, the “You Belong With Me” singer handled it like a pro.
The November 20 show was originally scheduled for November 18, but was postponed due to extreme heat in Rio. According to USA Today, the death of 23-year-old fan Ana Clara Benevides Machado before the first show in the city forced the team to postpone it.
Swift has completed performances in Rio as part of her record-breaking Eras Tour and will move to Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she will play three shows at the Allianz Parque stadium from November 24 to 26.
Fans are jealous of the lucky guy who got the heel
Receiving a souvenir from your pop icon is the dream of many Swifties. And now they are jealous of the only person who, among an audience of thousands, caught Swift’s broken heel.
