Gigi Hadid's list of skills keeps growing, ranging from the expected to the downright impressive (albeit impractical). Her latest coup is a testament to her reaching both ends of that spectrum. The 21-year-old model adds yet another design project to her résumé — this time with Stuart Weitzman, the footwear brand she's been the face of for a while. To mark the occasion, Hadid stars in a short film directed by James Franco (uh, interesting) in which she shows off her boxing skills while wearing the Gigi Boot: a metallic bootie with a stacked 3-inch heel. Now, that takes finesse.
Hadid has, in fact, shown off her physical agility in past Stuart Weitzman ads, high-kicking in the label's over-the-knee boots as recently as its fall '16 campaign. Still, the Franco-lensed film shows the Gigi Boot in its full range of motion: as the model warms up before going in the ring, as she lets it all out against a punching bag, and as she dukes it out with an opponent. Of course, Hadid is in full athleisure garb throughout — and this is likely just a taste of how we'll see her style her collaboration in real life.
The Gigi Boot comes in three colorways: iron gray, black embossed croc, and glass copper. The two metallic styles retail for $565, while the black heel goes for $598. (Hey, walking a day in Gigi's shoes doesn't come cheap.)
