The world's richest model, and former Sports Illustrated cover girl, Kathy Ireland, is expanding her lifestyle and clothing empire to include footwear for the first time.

The 50-year-old is set to launch her own footwear line featuring 'bold colors, fun textures and hardware' for spring 2015 in collaboration with Royal Footwear & Accessories.
