Try prying summer combat boots away from supermodel Irina Shayk. Whether rain, shine, snow, or 100-degree heat index, she loves those sturdy shoes. Today, the Russian bombshell stepped out in a full beige look, including a clingy dress, a Burberry Olympia shoulder bag, mask, and a pair of shin-skimming boots by Tamara Mellon. The day before, she was spotted dropping her daughter off in school in a body-skimming black tank, snakeskin print pants, and a pair of black biker boots. There’s more: Over the past few months, Shayk has worn her combat boots with everything from mini dresses to zebra-striped pants.

While other celebrities are wearing a practical thong heel or sandal, letting their toes see the sunrays, Shayk is opting for fabulous clunkers. She’s used to doing her own thing, sartorially speaking. Throughout lockdown, she didn’t pull punches or relax her look whatsoever. Instead, she continued to step out in sweatsuits with knee-high boots and curve-hugging slip dresses. As for her winning summer boots? There's no better way to stay chic and grounded.
