Those pearl-encrusted sandals that marked Kanye West’s first shoe collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti were widely panned here at Your Next Shoes. We weren’t big fans of the unflattering jelly roll-like socks. The fact that they cost $6,000 didn’t help in convincing us either.

Kanye must’ve gotten a hint because he publicly announced that he wasn’t going to show a collection at Paris Fashion Week this year. Turns out, he’s actually just focusing on his new collaborative album and the matching shoe to go with it.

Yes, an album with a matching shoe. Love him or hate him, you just got to respect Kanye West’s diversity in his interests.

Below you can check out Giuseppe Zanotti and Kanye West’s newest shoe collaboration effort and the cover of the compilation album that inspired it, both named Cruel Summer!

The shoe takes the album cover’s porcelain-like feathers and leaves the bosom-cupping maiden behind.

The stark all-white color scheme makes it difficult to mix and match with but we think Kim Kardashian, who seems to love anything by Kanye West, will find a way around that.
