Kanye West has already conquered the music industry -- and now he wants you to spend $5,800 on a pair of his high heels. The hip-hop star created these pearl-embroidered stilettos in collaboration with Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti -- and now they've been picked up by high-end Parisian boutique Colette, which will release them in the spring, The Insider reports.

The heels made their debut during Paris Fashion Week last October -- and while reviews for Kanye's duds were mixed, the shoes were popular, MTV reports. "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," West tweeted.

Zanotti, for one, is a fan. "[Kanye] loves learning about shoes [...] both the design and construction, and we've tried to design something together," he told Womens Wear Daily. He added, "In a couple of months, he could have his own special collection out." If the fancy shoes are a little too steep for your budget, don't worry too much: a second, all-black pair in velvet leather will retail for a mere $930.

    LOL. My car isn't worth $5800. Sorry, but IMHO, they're ugly as well.

    I wouldn't wear anything by West....even if they were free!! And I mean what I say. I don't buy Ben and Jerry's because they gave/give $$ to OWS. I didn't buy GE appliances for our house. I don't buy Heinz ketchup. I'm committed to NOT spend my money on products from socialist, liberal, or/and anti-American companies. :)

    Sometime I wonder, if some of the women I see dressed like this, realize how absurd they look.

    Lol is all I can say! For those who are making an astronomical amount of money and are willing to spend money on things as such, they should continue to do as they want because one thing is for sure- we will all die some day. For the ordinary person who gives money to support those people who use the money to get every thing their mind desires- continue to live y our life vicariously through your idols. What y'all folks do is non of my business!
