Giuseppe Zanotti Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson With Diamond Sneaker


Another fashion tribute to celebrate Michael Jackson’s birthday (which was on August 29th, btw), Giuseppe Zanotti launched 2,000 limited-edition pairs of numbered sneakers. His children, Paris and Prince Jackson, also kick-off the auction for the No.1 sneaker, a one-of-a-king, ruby and diamond-studded pair of shoes expected to go for $30,000-$50,000 at auction. All proceed will benefit The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Final bidding will take place at New York’s Hard Rock Café on November 9-10.

In the meantime, the other 1,999 pairs will be available at Neiman Marcus,, select Giuseppe Zanotti stores worldwide, and mid-October, retailing for $1,295.
