In the 70s and 80s, our mothers entered the workforce wearing boxy jackets and faux-ties to show that they could fit into a man’s mold. They sweltered in stockings year round, standing for hours while wearing painful heels designed by men to fit the dress code men wrote.
Tamara Mellon makes shoes for the modern professional woman. Women who know that if you can’t blend in, you might as well stand out. Women who break the mold then crush the pieces beneath their stilettos. Tamara Mellon makes shoes for women who don’t have time for uncomfortable shoes. Women who demand the world’s best quality and who won’t be cheated by 60% markups.
Modern women need shoes for every occasion. For being your boss’s boss. For building new ladders and painting them glitter pink. For pushing in your seat and taking the whole table.
The modern office can be treacherous terrain, so when you lose footing and feel unsure, the right shoe helps send a signal — Red pumps don’t apologize for taking up space. Leopard print boots are too loud to interrupt. Microstuds bite back. Knee-highs reclaim their time. The right shoe lets you walk into any room with a confidence that says I’m worthy to rule the world.
A Tamara Mellon shoe is classic, with an edge. It’s a timeless look that pays homage to the past while looking towards the future. It’s not a trend —here, then gone in a flash. Every time you wear a pair of Tamara Mellon heels, you will pay homage to your mother’s classic beauty. Walk tall and be supported by the foundation they fought to give us. Then, we must keep building, readying the world for the generations to come.
Here are three amazing heels for lending some edge to an office-approved look.
Leopard is the new neutral. The manageable 75mm heel and elegant curved lines of this haircalf boot make it an absolute closet-staple.
Every professional wardrobe needs a classic black pump and the triple straps on this pair separate classic from boring. That go-to interview dress might look like all the other LBDs, but these adult Mary Janes are a conversation piece that help you stand out from the pack.
This red statement heel adds some spark to the endless parade of grey-toned office apparel. Red is a lucky color, making these heels perfect for asking your boss for a raise, then asking your cute neighbor for his number. You’ll get both.
