Kanye West Teams Up With Guiseppe Zanotti to Drop Women’s Shoe

Despite criticisms from the media when he presented his own clothing line during Paris Fashion Week last year, Kanye West isn’t letting the negative feedback deter him from his fashion design dreams.

‘Ye has collaborated with Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti on a pair of part-pearl beaded, part-embroidered heels priced at approximately $5,800.

Folks first caught a glimpse of the natural colored, strappy sandal during Paris Fashion Week last October during the Louis Vuitton Don’s presentation. Now, the shoe is available at one of Yeezy’s favorite retailers, French shop Colette. And, for those working with less of a budget, there’s a second, more affordable all-black shoe made of velvet leather that goes for about $930. Check out the original style below:

Earlier this year, Kanye tweeted about learning about shoe design, writing, ”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.”

Last year, Zanotti spoke to Women’s Wear Daily about working with Kanye. ”[Kanye] loves learning about shoes [...] both the design and construction, and we’ve tried to design something together,” he said. He added, “In a couple of months, he could have his own special collection out.” —Mariel Concepcion @Mceezy
