Kanye West Garners Praise for Giuseppe Zanotti "Cruel Summer" Sandals

The shoe design is based on the cover artwork for West's Cruel Summer mixtape.

Published September 27, 2012

Kanye West's Guiseppe Zanotti shoes are the white-hot ticket item right now. The rapper teamed up with the Italian shoe designer to produce the white Grecian Cruel Summer sandals, named and designed after his latest mixtape of the same name. The strappy heels feature a slim and delicate heel with white leaves lining the front of the shoe.

Even though West has been a no-show for this week's Paris Fashion Week, Giuseppe Zanotti displayed the new shoe on their Milan storefront and the reception has been positive. But this isn't the first time the two teams have joined creative forces. In February, Giuseppe Zanotti designed the first pair of shoes for his runway show in Paris.

In the meantime, West's Cruel Summer mixtape has sold over 200,000 copies and debuted at number 2 on the iTunes chart.
