It’s always thrilling when Rihanna, unquestionably our generation’s greatest style icon, releases a new collection or collab. And tomorrow, November 16, she’s dropping new boots, continuing her ongoing partnership with shoe designer Manolo Blahnik. The capsule collection consists of three styles, and it’s called “Savage,” as in “didn’t I tell you that I was a …”
Just so you know, it’s unlikely that any of us will actually be able to purchase the boots — prices haven’t been released yet, but shoes from the previous Badgal/Blahnik collection cost between $895 and $3,995. Life: it’s so hard.
Even if you can’t buy them, it’s always nice to look for inspo. The three “Savage” designs all come together for a cohesive, very early-2000s look: the “Fallon” is Ri’s take on high-heeled Timbs, the “Alexis” is a knee-high, furry boot that screams early J. Lo, and the “Dominique” is covered in laser-cut flowers. All three rest on super-pointy, high stiletto heels, making us recall Rihanna’s brilliant ability to avoid falling through grates while wearing insane shoes. May we all be as blessed as Ri.
