OMG YES!

Madonna will be starting a new footwear line under the new Truth or Dare label, which is owned by MG Icon.

The line will have more than 60 styles, including flats, heels, booties, over-the-knee boots and will retail anywhere from $89 - $349.

Her stylist Arianne Phillips will be a creative consultant on the collection.

Speaking about Madge's influence on the shoes, Phillips said:

"Her fingers are really on this brand. The first thing I did was remind her of all the shoes she wore over the years, and we took the styles that we can’t live without. You can always depend on her to bring her style and provocateur quality, but she also has a very feminine perspective."

We are super excited about this endeavor! We can't believe it's taken this long to get our queen to create a shoe line!

The collection will be available later this year.

Our newest FitPerez correspondent and top Australian pro tennis player, Anastasia Rodionovaz, is here to answer any and all tennis training-related questions!

The world-class female player and current Australian No. 1 in doubles also has the help of her trusted personal trainer, Jason Stacy, to give you the BEST advice possible!

This week, a FitPerez reader is curious if fitness footwear matters for effective workouts, asking:

Do you wear actual running shoes for your cardio, running and etc. or stick to tennis shoes? Does it even matter?

According to Anastasia & her fitness trainer Jason:

I do wear running shoes for "cardio". For workouts I have running shoes and/or my vibram five fingers. As far as if it matters, I'd say it's best to find a shoe that feels comfortable for you…for workouts I'd prefer a minimalist shoe (flat and low).

With all the conflicting opinions on what type of shoe is best, I'd recommend finding one that feels right. Ensure its not too narrow and If its comfortable and not causing you pain/dysfunction-go for it!!!!

Do U have a question for Anastasia? Write us at Tips@FitPerez.com or go directly to the source! Tweet her @Arodionova or Jason @tomaranu_kokoro and make sure to check out her website!
