Buried in Forbes's profile on Giuseppe Zanotti's 20-year-long career is some exciting news: a forthcoming collaboration with Beyoncé. "I'm working on finalizing the shoe with her stylist right now," Zanotti told Forbes contributor Declan Eytan. "And Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn't like. It will be one shoe only."
Zanotti showed Eytan a sketch of the shoe on his phone, but Eytan couldn't make out all the details. "I'm not able to see what the final product will turn out like exactly, but going by the sketch, Beyoncé has a thing for ultra thick platform stilettos," he writes.
Thankfully, there won't be a long wait until the collaboration drops, as Eytan reports that the one shoe will be released within the next two weeks. Guesses on heel height start now.
