Kanye West's Shoes Are Officially for Sale, And They're Nearly $6,000




    After a poorly-received Spring 2012 launch, Kanye West has succeeded in getting one element of his collection picked up -- the shoes, which were created in collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti.

    Two styles are now on sale at Colette in Paris, both at the brick-and-mortar store (Fashionista's Leah Chernikoff got an up-close look) as well as the shop's e-commerce site. The price tag for a black strappy option is about 700 euros, while a white style covered in embroidered peals costs a whopping 4,420 euros, or nearly $6,000.

    As we noted back when West staged the spring collection in Paris back in October, the shoes were undoubtedly the best part of the show, so at the very least, West has proven he's got a talent for collaboration. (As more evidence, see his past work with brands like Louis Vuitton.) For those with the budget to afford a pair (we're looking at you, Anna Dello Russo), there are still four sizes left in the pearly sandals.
