Kanye West debuted his fashion line this fall to mixed reviews, but pieces from the fashionisto’s line are finally making their way to market. His first pair of shoes, created through a partnership with Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti, is for sale through French retailer Colette. They retail for 4,420 €, or $5,800.

For those of you who clicked on this post just to comment that you’d never pay $5,800 for some shoes, I ain’t mad at you because neither would I! But don’t forget that anything popular enough will soon lead to knock-off versions that just may hit that magic Macy’s price range that could make rocking pearl-laden stilettos or whatever one would call these not such a bad idea. Or, you could go the low-budget route and cop Kanye’s black strappy design, which retails for a cool $705.

What do you think? Would you rock these?

    What the hell are they made of for that price?


  • The Black Police

    LOL. Thats all.

    The first pair is cute but a tad too busy for my taste, perhaps if they removed the top two loops (?). The straps on the second one look like they’d hurt after a while. The heel height would shift all the weight to the front and there doesn’t seem to be enough cushioning. I’d consider them for an event where I didn’t have to walk around and would definitely bring my flats.

    I wouldn’t even wear those if they were given to me or free.

    Ye what happened to Broke Fi Broke? They aint even that cute….you have to put a better price tag on what looks like some gym socks rolled up with yogurt raisins and a heel glued to it.

    Jordans only cost 200.00

    I would not pay $5000 for something that would depreciate as soon as I put them on, even if I had the money. I would put that money in an IRA and let the money grow!!! I would not pay $700 for some shoes that probably hurt, especially since I can get the same looking shoes at Cole Haan for half that, and Cole Haan shoes have Nike Air technology in the soles so they shoes are comfy!!!!!!!

    Of course I wouldn’t pay that but I actually like both pair.

  • suga7

    I love, LOVE Giuseppe Zanotti, but i do not see myself buying these. The first pair are cute as hell and the second pair are just blah.

  • Miriam

    Neither of these shoes are attractive to me. The second pair of black strappy ones are simple but not anything special. I adore Kanye but neh to both.

    You’re kidding right?!? With the economy the way it is (and even if the economy wasn’t dismal) this is a ridiculous notion (to pay $6,000 for a pair of shoes). The average person has no business even contemplating buying these shoes!! Plus the first pair is ugly as hell. What’s with the socks. In short that’s why so many people don’t have jack…..because of spending money on material crap. (that they really don’t need). What you should be asking the audience is HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU HAVE IN A SAVINGS ACCOUNT, 401K, AND EMERGENCY FUND(?)

  • pink

    And the crazy thing is that some mofo is probably going to be out here trying to figure out how to get a pair of these shoes. Skewed priorities for sure!!!

  • Sashay

    I loooove the cream pair!!

  • minna k.

    expensive corn and bunion.

    They are cute, but I wouldn’t be buying it because I have no where to wear them to.

  • binks

    The first shoes are ugly and the second is basic as hell, people are getting crazy with these prices on something that is suppose to touch the ground

  • pink

    TheBest: So the only reason you aren’t buying them is because you don’t have anywhere to wear them?!? Yeah Right!! Pleeeeeez….how about not buying them because of the price??

  • ThisIshRightHere

    The pearl shoes are BAD (could be the sorority girl in me, but whatever). I’d rock them with some itty bitty black shorts, a black lace cami or black satin tank top and as many pearls as I could fit around my neck. The price tag is moot as I do not have a spare 5.8k, but I consider them the epitome of shoe-icide.
