Nicki Minaj’s 8 Most Memorable Shoe Moments of 2012

One exceptionally entertaining celebrity we like to watch is Nicki Minaj. Not only can the Harajuku dresser rap, but she can also certainly stop traffic with her over-the-top fashion choices. And while she has been known to favor exquisite pumps and peep toes from Giuseppe Zanotti and Christian Louboutin for her red carpet appearances, Nicki’s preference in footwear goes far beyond the classic. Her flamboyant taste in boots, for instance (and, of course, clothing), is what makes the star quite memorable.

For today’s entry, we decided to highlight some of Nicki’s unforgettable shoe moments in 2012. Take a look at her outfits and do tell, which do you think deserves a spot in the YNS Hall of Fame?
