While Anne Hathaway is happy strutting around in her vegan shoes, Beyonce is getting ready to show off her latest piece of footwear: a pair of custom-made sneakers that, as some greenheads would put it, spell animal cruelty.


Sources
report that these sneakers were designed by custom brand Perfectly Made Kicks (PMK) especially for the artist. In fact, PMK's official press release on their creating these shoes was as follows:

“Continuing this custom in 2013, PMK starts the year off with another world’s first, taking the Isabel Marant sneaker wedge to the cobbling block to create a one-of-a-kind design for R&B Royalty and POP sensation Beyonce Knowles-Carter.”

So far, so good. However, some people are bound to be a tad taken aback by the materials used in creating these shoes: anaconda, ostrich, crocodile, stingray, calf's hair.

To put it is a nutshell, PMK seems to have used whatever animal skins came their way when working on creating these sneakers.

For the time being, the price of these shoes is yet to be shared with the public.
