A couple of months ago, I heard a rumor that Kanye West was designing a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers. I did not post anything about it because I fact-check my information before posting it. According to Kanye West’s long time personal barber and trusted style consultant Ibn Jasper, this rumor may be true. He posted a picture on Instagram of rapper 50 Cent wearing the sneakers in his “We Up” visual with the caption, “50 rockin the YEEZi x Giuseppe’s“.
If Kanye did collaborated with Giuseppe Zanotti on a pair of luxury sneakers, I’m sure a lot of people will buy them just because Kanye’s name is attached to it. These sneakers are already for sale on a few European retail sites, including Shoe Baloo.
What are your thoughts on these sneakers and would you buy them?

These shirts were designed by Italian Designer Riccardo and is from the Spring 2012 collection. Don C rocked the mint green colorway while Ibn sported the black. The Givenchy Birds of Paradise Tee-Shirts are very popular. Rapper Theophilus London wore the mint green colorway at the TAA Awards & Celebration at The BOX in NYC during the Tribeca Film Festival.
