How would you do this animation? Bending a boot

Hey guys. I don’t know if this is the right category but I hope it is.
I came acroos this Tik tok video of Zara wich is pretty simple but yet so cool and I was wondering if any of you would have any ideas on how to do it on Blender. I personally don’t have much experience doing this kind of animation so it would be cool to try to replicate it as a good excersice.

This it the Tik tok

Thank you!

For some reason the page does not let me link the video but here it is the link


I don’t know whether this works, but I’d try a cloth modifier on the boot mesh with negative pressure: this should crumble the boot (probably need to turn on self-collision). Playing the animation in reverse then looks like unfolding.

This is what I got (with minimal effort):
