Crazy Collaboration Alert: Whole Foods and Christian Louboutin Making $1,100 Shoe Made of Kale(?!)

Posted on April 26, 2013 at 1:00 pm / Posted by


Okay, so we’re not sure if this is true—but it’s a pretty crazy rumor. According to David Oliver Cohen of The Crosby Press, pricey shoe brand Christian Louboutin is teaming up with Whole Foods to produce a shoe that’s made entirely of kale. Yes, kale—you know, the trendy veggie that seems to creep its way onto every farm-to-table menu in America.

Cohen obtained the photo of the shoes (above) thanks to a friend who works in a photo studio in Manhattan that was working on a project with Louboutin. Apparently, the shoe is 100 percent compostable, entirely organic, and a portion of the proceeds will go to Whole Foods’ non-profit farming initiative. The kicker? These bad boys are $1,100!

Given that Louboutin’s red soled beauties can retail for way higher than that, this seems like a great investment—although we’re not too sure what walking around in kale feels like. From the looks of the alleged shoe, we’d guess that this will be a pretty big celebrity favorite, with stars like Kanye West fighting for a pair.

What do you think of the collaboration and do you believe the rumor?
