Kanye West Beaded Heels Can Be Yours… For $6K
Kanye West 's eye catching Giuseppe Zanotti shoes which debuted last fall at Paris Fashion week are now available for purchase by the public.
The hardworking hip hop mogul debuted the spring/summer 2012 collection of his fashion line DW by Kanye West. While the reviews of his clothing line were mixed at best, his Giuseppe Zanotti high fashion heels were clear jaw droppers.
Admirers of the pearl-embroidered stilettos can now purchase their own pair at French retailer Colette Paris where the shoes retail for 4,420 euros or approximately $5,800. A less expensive all-black strappy version made of velvet leather is also available for 705 euros or approximately $930.
West tweeted about his experience learning shoe design during his Twitter rant marathon:"I snuck to Giuseppe Zanotti Factory still under contract and learned to design women's shoes for 2 years before my first show in Paris."
In August of 2011, Zanotti told Women's Wear Daily, "[Kanye] loves learning about shoes [...] both the design and construction, and we've tried to design something together.
