Is the Swag Right? Giuseppe Zanotti’s Take On ‘Cruel Summer’

by on September 29, 2012

As you may or may not have seen, footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti has created a limited edition pair of heels in honor of Kanye and his latest ‘Cruel Summer’ venture.

Fashion phenom/artist Theophilus London snapped a perfect picture of the shoe (seen above) during Milan Fashion Week, really showcasing the Greek goddess-elements of the heel. I love the wreath design – which could double as angel wings if you take a closer look – and the overall structural elements of the shoe, like the ankle straps and curved-in heel.

A closer look at the Giuseppe Zanotti x Kanye West ‘Cruel Summer’-inspired heels.

This pair seems vintage-inspired to me, mostly because of the thickness of the wreath appliqué and the shocking white color. I doubt that these will be released on a wide-scale (actually, I think it’s almost a guarantee that they won’t), they’ll probably just end up on the feet of girlfriend Kim K, Beyonce, and maybe a few other ladies close to him. If they were to be sold, I’m sure they’d be close in price to Kanye’s first Giuseppe collaboration, which were an exorbitant $6,000.
