Rachel Roy (a favorite designer of First Lady Michelle Obama [and us]) has announced plans to release a line of footwear that “represents the woman [she] wants to be.”
In an interview with WWD Roy described the line as “classic with a twist,” featuring flats, pumps, and boots in a variety of materials from snakesin to suede. With this first foray into footwear Roy pays homage to shoe god Manolo Blahnik, who served as Roy’s mentor over the past six years. Arguably the best news about the line is its price tag: ranging from under $200 for flats to $600 for boots, Roy’s footwear will stay clear of Blahnik territory and within the realm of reality. Just six more months until the launch! Expect them in stores (and online) in August.
