Kim Kardashian Is Now a Shoe

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is celebrating his 20th anniversary this year in a big way. In April, he released an all gold collection, entitled “Jewel,” and spoke to ELLE.com about his creative process and about how loving shoes and loving problems were one in the same.

For his second collection,
Zanotti is revisiting rock 'n' roll, which seems appropriate considering his celeb fans include the likes of Nicki Minaj and Gwen Stefani. Pulling from his archives, as far back as 2002 (ancient history in the fashion world), Zanotti is turning to the late Michael Jackson for inspiration for the “MJ” shoe. Luckily, Zanotti designs such classically sexy styles that even a shoe from 2002 looks contemporary.

One style in particular, the "Mrs. West", was designed for, well, Mrs. West herself. Though Kim is not really of the rock 'n' roll variety, Kim's husband, Kanye, certainly is and the rapper has even collaborated with Zanotti on shoes in the past. Made in 2012 for the reality TV star, the peep-toe bootie features a stiletto heel and oversized silver hardware.

If you officially want to get into Mrs. West’s shoes—and I know I do—you’ll have to wait until December to do so, when the collection finally hits stores and online.
