They may never walk on the Oval Office carpet, but Hillary Clinton is getting a pair of pumps named in her honor.

Pop star Katy Perry’s forthcoming foray into footwear will honor, among others, the former secretary of state, People magazine reported Wednesday.

Launching on Feb. 16, Katy Perry Collections will also include a sparkly multicolored sneaker designed in honor of the “Girls” creator and actress Lena Dunham.

The Hillary, a $139 shoe that appears to be rose gold in color, features a clear heel that contains stars — adding a “a pep in her step” the singer says.

“I’ve been courting this idea for several years,” Ms. Perry, who campaigned for Mrs. Clinton and performed at the Democratic convention in 2016, told People magazine. “For half my career, people have been asking me when I’m getting into fashion. It’s always been simmering under the surface, but I wanted to do it the right way and be the real creative contributor. This is something that I’ve created from the bottom up.”

Ms. Perry dedicated the $129 Lena sneaker to Ms. Dunham, “the coolest tomboy” she knows who “embraces everything and she isn’t afraid to be who she is,” People reported.
