Isn’t It Nice to Be Beyonce: See the Singer’s $5,500 Custom Sneaker WedgesMar 21, 2013 @ 2:35 pm
PMK Customs considers itself the “Maybach” of the couture sneaker world, which is why when Jay-Z and Beyonce wanted their kicks customized, they turned to founder Andre Scott. The brand crafted Jay’s red Nike-striped “Brooklyn Zoo” Jordans out of a hybrid of luxury reptile skins ($2,500), and Queen Bey liked them so much, she asked the designer to put a fresh twist on her Isabel Marant wedges, too. That’s how her creamy “King Bey” shoes came to be, an ostrich/crocodile/anaconda mix stitched together with gold thread ($5,500). “[The customization] mimics the southern belle’s sweet and fierce persona,” Scott told InStyle.com. “They are two very humble and inspirational people, and to have them part of our network is a true blessing.” Especially when the customers are so impressed by extreme attention to detail—Johnson said he had no edits to the specialized pieces.
