Irina Shayk and Tamara Mellon Revamp the Pant-Boot

START body

With their second capsule collection together, Tamara Mellon and Irina Shayk once again prove that they are a match made in shoe heaven. Mellon, who is one of the most notable shoe designers in the fashion industry today, is perhaps best-known for designing some of the sexiest shows on the market. Likewise, Shayk, a CR Fashion Book cover star, is one of the most sultry supermodels to grace the world’s magazines and runways to-date. Therefore, it’s no wonder that these two teamed-up again for a second collection that’s even hotter than the first.

For this iteration of their collaboration, Tamara and Irina continued to explore the interaction between form and function. Both women consider balancing these two concepts to be integral in order for women to feel their most confident and powerful in their shoes. As a result, they produced three brand new silhouettes that play to both aspects perfectly.

With these designs, Mellon was able to return to and revamp her infamous pant-boots (a.k.a. bants), which caused a stir in the footwear industry years ago. However, this time around, rather than featuring a heeled-boot style, Irina and Mellon created bants with a chunky lug sole boot. Dubbed “Sweet Revenge,” his new style retains the sleek and cool appearance of the original, while demonstrating the duo’s novel commitment to practicality.

Additionally, the pair have also launched two more styles: the “Iri” and the “Spike.” The Iri, a cousin to Sweet Revenge, Iri is another chunky lug sole boot that goes either thigh- or ankle-high, as the upper part of the boot can zip off. The Spike is the saucier sister to the former two designs. A suede leather bootie, it features a thin silver heel for a look that is both edgy and classic.

For the second round of their collaboration, Mellon and Shayk have produced three distinct styles that are ideal for the woman of today. Simply put, while looking sexy, cool, and timeless, they have, above all, ensured that their shoes are equally functional and practical.
