Italian footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti is teaming up with K-pop star G-Dragon to launch a limited edition collection of both men and women's shoes.

The shoes are available in two styles: lace-up and loafer, at the price of $775 (approx. RM3,370) and $695 (approx. RM3,022) respectively. In addition to the two styles, fans can also decide between the black glittery version or the multicoloured one (we're going for the latter).

"I am used to working with celebrities around the globe, and my collaboration with G-Dragon is something that we wanted to do as he is currently one of the biggest stars in Korea with a huge following in Asia," Giuseppe told WWD.

"He has a unique style in playing his music. I find it really impressive, and our cooperation means a thrilling challenge to me. I love to work with other artists and brainstorm on the creative process," he added.

"These shoes turned out exactly how I wanted," G-Dragon said. "It's not just girls or women who get excited and worked up over pretty shoes. I think guys can feel that way, too, and I think both will feel that way about these shoes."

Mark your calendars for the collection's release in selected Giuseppe Zanotti stores starting October. The shoes will also be available online.
