Some celebs have been seen in the controversial shoe. Kim Kardashian was spotted sporting sandals from her husband’s brand, Yeezy. The shoes, which are from Kanye West’s Season 8 collection, seem to be a go-to for the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star. Kardashian was seen wearing the nude PVC heels paired with different outfits, including an on-trend, all-nude outfit which she wore while out for lunch with her sister Khloe.
