Giuseppe Zanotti is a favorite designer among the celebrity set. But when asked to pick his favorite shoe designed for a celebrity, he couldn’t choose just one look.

Here, Zanotti shares with FN a few of his most standout custom shoe projects.

“I have been very lucky to be able to work with many celebrities and artists throughout my career — I [can’t pick just] one favorite. There was the time I made the shoes for Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz Tour. More recently, I made custom-made heels for Karolina Kurkova for the Met Gala.”

“I worked on a collaboration with Korean star G-Dragon and I created the shoes for Janet Jackson‘s Unbreakable World Tour. All of them were exciting endeavors and special for me.”
