You may think you have never heard of Tamara Mellon, but you will recognize her work. Co-founder of Jimmy Choo and the designer of those legging boots — ring any bells?
Tamara launched her own label last month and just released a short film starring Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss. ‘High Heels and Sharp Knives’ is a seemingly dark story with an unexpected twist. It’s got knives, blood, lovers, and some super hot shoes. The film features those long, long boots and a pair of red caged pumps along with an array of Tamara Mellon’s clothing designs.

Let’s start with the “Sweet Revenge” legging boots. This heeled leather creation may have revolutionized the way clothing and shoes work together. Some love it. Some hate it. But you can’t deny that you’re intrigued by this new concept.

Tamara has chosen a leopard-print theme for a number of pieces in her collection. Calf hair and black elaphe sandals make a comfortable yet stylish pair of shoes that will go with absolutely anything.
