Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen rocked the perfect statement shoe when she strutted down the runway at the Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
The supermodel represented her country on Friday wearing native Brazilian shoe designer Alexandre Birman’s new heels that his luxury label created especially for the occasion.
The custom silver python sandal is be the newest addition to the collection, to be available soon at select retailers.
Of course, for such an iconic moment, the brand’s forthcoming shoe style deserves an iconic name — “Gisele,” which is emblazoned in script on the insole.
