To honor the late Michael Jackson’s birthday, the Michael Jackson Diamond Celebration took place in Las vegas on August 29. At the event, a partnership between Italian shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti and the Estate of Michael Jackson was announced, in addition to their collaboration on a limited-edition leather sneaker in honor of the King of Pop. The Tribute shoe embodies Michael Jackson’s flamboyant style, featuring Swarovski crystal-encrusted fasteners, the word “tribute” in crystals on the right sole, and the musician’s name engraved on the buckle. The shoes were spotted on Paris Jackson, who joined CR for her last 13 minutes of Friday the 13th for CR Fashion Book Issue 13, as well as her brother and uncle, Prince Jackson and Jackie Jackson, and the designer. Only 2,000 pairs of the sneakers will be made, and each pair will be numbered in sequence. The “Tribute” will be available in black, white, and silver.
The celebration also kicked off the auction for a one-of-a-kind pair of shoes created by Giuseppe Zanotti and the Michael Jackson Estate. The “Number One” is identical to the black “Tribute” sneakers, except that the Swarovski crystals are replaced with 120 genuine black diamonds and 55 rubies. The proceeds of the auction, which fans are invited to bid on until November 9, will benefit The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
The exclusive Tribute sneakers will retail for ,295 and will be available to shop in mid-October in select Giuseppe Zanotti stores worldwide and online, as well as in US Neiman Marcus locations and on the website.END
