Irina Shayk Is Making a Strong Case For Wearing Boots in the Summer
The model and Tamara Mellon tell InStyle all about their new shoe collaboration, which includes three standout styles you're about to see everywhere.
Sure, Irina Shayk may be known for her talent in the modeling department, but her love of fashion doesn't just stop at the end of the catwalk. We've envied her everyday outfits for literal years and even on a random weekday, Shayk has been known to treat the streets of NYC as her own personal runway. There's no doubt this woman has style and impeccable taste - which is part of the reason we're so excited about her new collaboration with shoe designer Tamara Mellon.
The two worked together to come up with three different feel-good summer styles: a flatform sandal called Sand Dune, a lug sole heel called Sun Valley, and a light, slouchy boot (yes, a boot!) called Escape. While these designs are just as versatile as your old seasonal favorites, it's the small details that make them special and fun. Plus, when speaking InStyle via Zoom, above, Shayk and Mellon were happy to get us started with outfit ideas, sharing plenty of ways to wear them and when.
And, yes, if you're still caught up on the summer boot thing, don't worry. They make a very strong case as to why we need one, and we're more ready to add this beige version to our carts, ASAP.
Each different shoe will have its own exciting drop on tamaramellon.com during the month June and the Sand Dune is already available, just as things are really heating up. While the $595 to $895 price tag means these babies are no doubt an investment purchase, the classic vibe and neutral colorway ensures you'll be working them into your rotation for years to come.
