Kanye West’s first foray into women’s wear received harsh reviews from fashion critics in the fall following his much buzzed about Paris Fashion Week debut. It seemed everyone saw something wrong with the rapper’s collection, whether it was the use of fur for spring, bland silhouettes or over sized bags, it seemed apparent that the rookie had to go back to the drawing board if he was to make it as a designer. One item in his Dw collection, a pair of high heeled sandals, did receive accolades from critics and bloggers.
The heels were the result of West’s collaboration with Italian footwear designer Guiseppe Zanotti. Made of calf leather and a smörgåsbord of embroidered pearls ornately covering the tops of them. The shoes hit the shelves of Parisian boutique Colette last week with an earth shattering price tag of $5,841.91. Yes! You read that right. Walking in one of Kanye’s shoes will cost you almost $6000. Not sure about you but I can think of so many good uses for $6000, including a few months of rent, a few months of student loans, revamping my blog, a few trips around the country, a trip to London for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and so much more.
