First Cardi B made us all yearn for some killer red bottomed Christian Louboutins in her hit single “Bodak Yellow,” then she made the case for those Balenciaga boots (the ones that look like socks) in her hit single “I Like It” and now, yet another Cardi B banger bringing killer footwear into the mix. Inspired by Cardi’s verse calling on Us all to turn our phones on airplane mode and leave him on read (meaning to leave the person knowing that you read a message without replying) in her single “I Do,” Tamara Mellon has launched the “Leave Him on Red” shoe collection — and it is major.

The limited-edition line includes three new red sandals and, for some serious cute factor, every pair comes with a red Smith & Cult nail polish named — you guessed it —Leave Him on Red. The Ombre Capretto, which retails at $475, is an open-toe sandal with an elastic ankle strap and a 4 inch chunky heel. The Hue Capretto is a mule with a lower heel and runs for $425 a pop. And the Prism Capretto is a chunky platform wedge that retails for $795.

Even cooler: the campaign for the collection features LaLa Anthony, Angie Harmon and Denise Vasi, all of whom share a personal “leave him on read” story, which you can view on TamaraMellon.com or on IGTV. Harmon’s statement: “It’s about self-respect— knowing that no matter what, we are all special, unique, and precious. We are all worth something. We have value, and we deserve to be treated that way.”

Mellon also shared some more about the important message behind her new chic AF designs, explaining via press release, “If you read between the lines, or lack thereof, to leave someone on read is about much more than not texting back,” Mellon says. “It means knowing your worth enough to be able to recognize when someone else doesn’t, and having the strength to move forward without them. This campaign recognizes confident and fearless women who’ve demonstrated this in their personal lives and careers.”
