She's been busy filming throughout the summer, but it appears Halle Berry still found the time to create a shoe collection.
And as she stepped out to model her fall range in collaboration with German footwear company Deichmann, her enviably toned pins were also on show.
Wearing a number of different outfits, including a thigh-skimming mini-skirt and tight leather trousers, to compliment her heel and wedged designs the 45-year-old X Men star looked happy and relaxed as she posed in front of the cameras.

peep toes with wedge heels, high-heeled sandals with straps and
high-heeled sling sandals on wedge heels.

She says, 'I

really are. I think that's for women today and how much we are on our
feet and how much we walk.

'Having a shoe that's comfortable as well as stylish is just as important as being affordable quite honestly.'
Berry admits she's also a big fan of the shoe line: 'I wear what's
comfortable. I wear sort of seasonal shoes, like the collection now is
for fall and winter. So I always try to stay within the season in the
country that I'm in. But I go for fashionable comfort.'
Deichmann owner Heinrich Deichmann added: 'We are very pleased that Halle Berry is our new partner. She is an internationally renowned artist and a global style icon.'
The company, which is Europe's largest shoe retailer with more that 50 UK stores, has previously signed up Cindy Crawford, the Pussycat Dolls and the Sugababes to promote its shoes.
