High heels are par for the course on the red carpet. Gal Gadot is not about that life. At last night's Hollywood premiere of Wonder Woman, the star opted for a $50 pair of gold thong sandals from Aldo instead.

She wore them under a red, sequined Givenchy gown.

When asked on the red carpet about why she chose flats, she had an easy answer: "It's more comfortable! That's it."

In fact, Gal has been committed to wearing flats throughout her press tour.
