High Heels Designed by Kanye West: Worth $5,800?

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.

    $5800 for this? This has to be a joke, or dude's a scam, or his market is a high dollar hoe or some entertainer, etc. A man designs some shoes that look like these? Sounds a bit moist if you ask me. If someone want's to spend $5800 on some shoes, It's America and it's their money.

    I'm mixed about this one. Is it ugly because it's 5775.00 overpriced or because it looks like a beaded grandma sweater...... Ahhhh Kanye!!!

    I definitely won't be buying something that I can't walk or stand up on! Plus, I wouldn't pay that much for any shoes and I don't care who made them!

    If a clear definition of "Hooker Heels" exists, it would be those! They are one of the most hideous pair of shoes I've ever seen!

    Almost as bad as these!

    Yeah? Let's see her walk in them! lol There are PLENTY of high heeled shoes that look better than those. Any high heled shoe is going to make a woman's calves stand out.

    If the calves on that woman are that huge, what must the thighs be like???.....
  • Robert Sass 2012/03/08 17:33:18

    I see you don't like big thighs, you like thin boyish ones. Who cares whether or not she can walk in those shoes, she can take them off. Would I hit on her? No, but she does have some great looking calves for a big gal. I know you know that big women often have small ones for friends. A good approach to the big gal can lead to a dime piece if you play your cards right. But you know that I'm sure. I'm preaching to the choir. 2 quick stories. A friend took me to a sorority party and wandered off and danced with an older woman. We were in our early 20's at the time and she looked about 50. I was like Damn! They were having a good time too. Laughing and talking and dancing. Damn look at him! Later, I asked him, man all of these fine hammas in here and you're huddled up what that old gal? He said, she's my future mother-in-law! Around the same age, I drove a friend and one of his buddies to a party once. Didn't get to the cleaners in time to get my suits and slacks out etc. so all I had were those expensive jeans and polo shirts, etc. Man where's your suit, etc? Both him and his boy were suited and booted and tried to make me feel like I was bumming. Wouldn't even talk to me, just gave me directions. I was cool with that though. Got to the party and it was jumping...

Got to the party and it was jumping. They walked off scheming on getting in a back room where people where going in and out and left me at the door. I grabbed a beer and this older lady wandered over to me and started dancing. Just came right over and started dancing. We danced a little and talked. She told me that her daughters were at the party. I tried to flatter her by asking her who would babysit during a party like this. Trying to maker her feel like she was a young gal. She said no, her daughters were in that back room. The one where everyone is going in and out? Yes, you want to meet them? Of course and she grabbed me by the arm escorted me right past my partners who were still scheming on how to get in and led me to 3 fine young thangs. Dime pieces! My two boys finally got in and talked them into going out to dance. I was just content staying back there with them! Any way, we danced for a while and then another dime piece pulled up on me. Don't I know you, etc.? We did! You never know who knows who and where things might lead too. But all of that can be lost due to a negative attitude.

    Just thinking though! I suppose you're assuming that she has big blubbery thighs since her calves are big. Doesn't have to be so. Some women have huge calves but the thighs aren't hugh in proportion. If she's huge and think she's fine as sh-t, that's one thing. But the way that guy is standing in front of her....
