Karla Welch and Tamara Mellon Have Teamed up on Shoes to Take You to the Polls
These boots are made for ... voting.
Sure, buying new shoes may not seem like priority no. 1 when we're all a) stuck indoors, and b) only seeing friends from roughly the shoulders up. However, we’re all in when said shoes are comfortable and charitable, like the collaboration from celebrity stylist Karla Welch and legendary footwear designer Tamara Mellon.
The duo have put their heads together on a trio of shoes made to be walked in, and for women who "get shit done," according to the brand. Among the offering is a sleek creeper, an over-the-knee boot with a thick rubber sole, and a mid-calf height lace-up boot. Nothing fussy, or uncomfortable — these are shoes for walking the walk.
Welch, who styles the likes of Tracee Ellis Ross, Sarah Paulson, and Justin Bieber, and Mellon, who co-founded Jimmy Choo in London in 1996, are both passionate advocates for social justice. As part of the collaboration, Mellon has committed to donating to I Am a Voter, a non-partisan organization that encourages eligible voters to hit the polls on election day (or send their mail-in ballots, if they prefer). On National Voter Registration Day, Sept. 22, she will donate $10 for every person who texts "TMxKW" to 26797 to check their registration status and to sign up to receive updates about voting deadlines.
The shoes range from $550-$795, and you can shop the collection here. Of course, don't forget to vote!
