Designer Jean Paul Gaultier has gone all collab-happy lately, first with the recent announcement of his line for Target, and now his earth-friendly, sky-high shoe design for Brazilian shoe label Melissa—a 10 cm. plastic stiletto sandal that's 100 percent recyclable (fashion is fickle, you know). The shoe hits stores in June, 2010.
