The fact that Roman has been plugging away at her business has fans heaping on all the praise.

“booked, busy & blessed! ❤️❤️”

“Happy looks good on you!”

“HEY MY BEAUTIFUL FRIEND YOU GO GIRL 🔥🔥”

“U are beautiful looking good @tamiroman.”

“Such a mofo’n Boss!”

Roman first announced her shoe line back in January while speaking to Footwear News.

“When I thought about a business I could get into, I wanted to pick things that are organic and authentic to me,” she said to the publication. “I don’t do things because someone else is winning in that lane. I do things I’m passionate about — and in the event it doesn’t take off, I can say, ‘But I still love it!’”

Since then, the actress, rapper and reality star has expanded the collection to include an array of boots and heels.

Dishing on how she developed the kinds of shoes she wanted to create, Roman said she was very hands-on in the process.

“I’m involved in every aspect of my shoe collection — I’m anal that way,” Roman said. “I can’t sketch, but I told [Rich] what I wanted, and she sketched it out. In the beginning, I focused solely on how I could make the ankle stand out, make it sexier and dress it up. Then we went into the height of the shoe — [we made] sure it has the right elevation from the ground up, for comfort as well as sexiness.”

Recently, Roman celebrated a new round of footwear being released for the season by attending a Roman x Rich event with daughters Jazz Anderson and Lyric Anderson.

“We did launch the icon boot, and then I have another design coming out with her within the next month, then my final design will come after that,” Roman said to Delux magazine of plans for the final footwear rollout. “I’m very excited about the marketplace to see what I have to offer, and they’ve been very receptive so far.”
