Kanye West to create shoe collection?

Kanye West has been learning about high heels, leading to reports he may be developing a women’s footwear line.

The 34-year-old rapper is famously passionate about style, having already designed sneakers for French fashion house Louis Vuitton.

Kanye is also planning to launch a debut womenswear collection at New York Fashion Week in September and it now seems he’s keen to learn more about stilettos. Apparently the music mogul has been spending time with acclaimed creator Giuseppe Zanotti.

“Kanye is always here in my factory. In the last three years, he has come here maybe every month and worked with the employees ten to 12 hours a day,” Giuseppe is quoted as saying in Footwear News.

“[Kanye] loves learning about shoes, both the design and construction, and we’ve tried to design something together,”

“In a couple of months, he could have his own special collection out.”

Apart from hinting at a Kanye shoe line, Giuseppe was remaining tight lipped so he didn’t give too much away. However, the Italian fashionista did concede that anything he works on is usually seductive.

“I always create shoes with a lot of sex appeal,” he smiled.
