See the New Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals Inspired by Kanye West and Sex

You might remember the sculptural white stilettos Kanye West designed in collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti last year, inspired by the Cruel Summer album artwork. The shoes, described as an “all-white sculpture with curvy, slinky lines culminating in a crescendo of ‘freezing flames,” were, believe it or not, pared back to the ones Ye pimped out with beads and a $5,583 price tag in 2012. Though as you can imagine, both pairs sold right the fuck out.

But if you’re looking for something more *subtle* to pair with your $120 plain white hip-hop tee, there are these new Cruel Summer flats designed in celebration of Giuseppe’s 20th anniversary. This pair is part of a capsule collection of six pairs of golden sandals, and though not actually designed by Kanye, most certainly inspired by him. And by sex:

“I was having dinner with Kanye on a warm summer evening when we decided to collaborate on his first collection,” Zanotti recalls. “It was an unforgettable evening, with amazing company and energizing ideas. I need music for inspiration, for life. These sandals are inspired by the muse of music, by glamor and pure sex appeal.”

Ye’s barber and creative consultant, Ibn Jasper, Instagrammed the #worldsmosttalkedaboutsandals over the weekend with the caption, “YEEZi x Giuseppe Cruel Summer flats.” We would have gone with #YeezusSandals but anyway:

If you’re in the market for some sex-inspired Roman sandals, you can buy these ones for a cool $1,695 here.
