If you could walk a mile in her boots…you’d be helping Nine West fight cancer. The footwear brand has partnered with the CFDA to create its Nine West Runway Relief initiative. For New York fashion week, the label is strapping Coco Rocha (pictured), Jessica White, and Lisalla Montenegro into a pair of its new boots, specially equipped with a pedometer; for each step the girls take, a donation will be made to the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer charity. If you like the high, multi-buckled boots yourself, good news: You don’t have to be a model to get a pair (though you do have to be quick). A limited number will be available for sale on Nine West’s Facebook page for $199.
