Would You Wear Beyonce's Rainbow Heels?

At Sunday night’s American Music Awards, Beyonce joined country music stars Sugarland onstage for a remix to her song “Irreplaceable” wearing some pretty unbelievable shoes. The ‘Closed Front Cage Sandals’ by Balenciaga go for $4,175 and feature a sneaker-like construction of red, yellow, green, and blue colors (and are available in all black). She’s not the first star to notice them, either. Last month, Kanye West even blogged about the shoes — giving them “The Illest Shoe Award”. They may be attention-getting, but we can’t help but be suprised that Beyonce would break with her normally classic style and pair these cutting edge heels with her J Brand jeans and patent jacket designed by mom Tina Knowles. Tell us: What do you think of Beyonce’s shoes? Would you wear these?

Hell to the NO, I would not spend that much money on a pair of shoes just to wear them one time like B is gonna do.. send that money to the hungry or the homless shelters, that where your heart should be …….

Samantha on

An emphatic “No!”. I wouldn’t wear them. They look fab on her, though, as does everything she wears IMHO. And thats not to say I dislike them, just that my [fashion] context differs.

Jamilla on

Heck yeah – those are sick. I would wear them……

Those go great with the rest of her outfit…yes if I had that kind of money I would wear them…they are actually very cute with jeans.

No thank you. All the rainbows around the world want their colors back. The shoes look like screws were drilled on the sides and the back. Why would anyone pay $4,000 for a pair of shoes that look like skates, minus the wheels.

To make matters worse, she’s just too matchy in my opinion. The earrings are colorful, the jacket and then the shoes. I like her jacket, but I don’t care for the red or yellow color for the pocket zippers, although I can live with the front blue zipper, I like that. Too much color for my liking. Beyonce would have looked great if she toned down the color, but that’s just me. I do love her J-brand jeans and her hair and make-up look terrific as usual.
