Supermodel Kathy Ireland may not grace billboards any longer, but she's still a household name -- or a household commodity, rather. Ireland was named the richest model in the world last year, with a multi-billion dollar home empire to rival Martha Stewart's, Kathy Ireland Worldwide. Apparently the 50-year-old former Sports Illustrated cover girl isn't satisfied yet, though, and is branching out with a shoe line.

Women's Wear Daily reports that Kathy will debut a footwear collection in collaboration with Royal Footwear and Accessories for spring 2015. According to the trade, we can expect "flex insoles and lightweight outsoles to add a comfort element to the collection. Bold colors, fun textures and hardware also will be part of the line."

Sounds downright practical -- an aspect of footwear unfamiliar to Kathy's catwalk competitors. Gisele, watch your back: Kathy Ireland might be closing in on your "most powerful model" title.

Kathy's come a long way:
