Dancing With the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff just landed a “cushy” new gig!
Karina has partnered with Foot Petals — known for its stylish designer insole cushions — to create a capsule collection, which will launch on FootPetals.com in late October.
The Karina Smirnoff Tips Toes and Heavenly Heelz limited edition collection will be available for $6.95 a pair.
This marks the first celebrity collaboration for Foot Petals, which has famous fans including Carrie Underwood, Jessica Alba, Emily Blunt, Miranda Lambert, and Rachel Zoe.
"I have been wearing Foot Petals in my shoes for years, not only on the red carpet and when I dance, but to make my everyday shoes more comfortable," Karina said in a press release. “A lot of people ask me how I'm able to walk and dance in high heels all the time and I tell them the truth — without Foot Petals it's not fun! My genuine love of this brand makes our partnership extremely exciting! I'm passionate about fashion — beautiful shoes are a must and Foot Petals is my secret to making everything more comfortable while staying stylish.”
Mistala Mooney, Marketing Manager for Foot Petals, added, “It was a very natural and organic partnership. Karina loves and uses Foot Petals whether they are in her dance shoes, stilettos, or flats during the day. It was exciting to collaborate and create different patterns and designs that reflect her outgoing and creative personality and style.”
This isn’t Karina’s first shoe-related partnership. Back in 2011, she created a Capulet boot in her "KS Collection" for BEARPAW Footwear. It was her second boot in the line, inspired by her beautiful Romeo & Juliet dance with Season 12 partner Ralph Macchio.
So if Corbin Bleu and Karina win DWTS Season 17, it’s probably safe for him to buy her something shoe-related to celebrate!
