From hip hop icon to fashion icon?

Back in 2011, Kanye got to collaborate with Giuseppe Zanotti, creating stiletto heels for Giuseppe’s 2012 spring shoe line. These shoes debuted in 2011 during Paris Fashion Week, and Kanye received extreme applause for his creation. Officially transforming from hottest rapper to successful designer, early this month, Kanye hit the Paris runway for his own spring 2012 collection. But what’s allowing celebs to go a little crazy is that those funky shoes— a $5,800 beaded shoe he co-designed with Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti—hit the stores and anyone with a little extra pocket change are cashing in. Not only are we looking forward to Mr. West‘s head-bobbing music, but now we’re also looking forward to his trendsetter designs.

These off white stilettos are constructed in calf leather and uniquely embroidered pearls. Cool-kid French retailer Colette has offered to pick up the much-desired heels.

And of course, who had no problem scraping up $5,800 for the hottest heels on the market but the one and only Kim Kardashian.
