What happens when Kathy, Paris and Nicky Hilton play FN’s shoe game?
The ladies spill all their footwear secrets in a series of revelations about Kathy’s obsession with hotel slippers, the wedding shoe idea Paris plans to steal from Nicky and the shoes they will never part with. Kathy also shares a hilarious story about Yeezy shoes from Kim and Kanye’s baby shower.
Favorite pair of shoes as a kid?
Paris: The little jelly shoes. Is that what they’re called? Jellyfish shoes? Remember those?
Nicky: Jelly shoes. My kids wear them. They never went out — you just grew up.
Shoes you wore in high school?
Nicky: My favorite pair of shoes were my French Sole ballet flats. I went to a very strict all-girls Catholic school on the Upper East Side where we had uniforms, no makeup, no nail polish. All we had to choose were our shoes. And I just fell in love with the shoes back then.
Paris: My favorite pair of shoes in high school were these black Prada high heels. I loved them.
Favorite pair living in your closet right now?
Kathy: Probably my Aquazzura evening shoes with the star and the moon [in crystals].
What shoes have you had the longest?
Kathy: I would never give up my pink and yellow pairs of the silk print Manolo Blahnik pumps [from the ’90s].
What pair do you travel in?
Kathy: My Rothys or my Yeezys or my hotel slippers — I love hotel slippers. Nicky said, ‘Mom, you are just like Justin Bieber.’ I didn’t even know that he wore slippers.
Shoes you’ll never get rid of?
Nicky: My wedding shoes: White, satin, by Christian Louboutin — custom, with my new married name and my wedding date. That was fun going to his showroom in Paris.
Paris: I should do that for my wedding.
Nicky: Why are you copying me?
Paris: Because they’re sick and I love Loubs.
What is the most outrageous pair of shoes you own?
NIcky: Paris, remember those Jimmy Choo light-up raver shoes you had?
Paris: Those were sick. I didn’t wear them.
Nicky: The battery ran out before you could wear them.
The riskiest shoe you’ve ever worn?
Nicky: The Christian Louboutin Pigalle is the sexiest and the most uncomfortable shoe I own.
What sneakers do you like to wear?
Kathy: My Yeezys, because they are so comfortable. The funniest [thing happened] at Kim and Kanye’s shower. They said ‘Can you take your shoes off? You get to pick something.’ I said I’ll take these. They said, ‘Oh no.’ Everybody at the party had to take their shoes off. Everybody inside had them on. They’re very comfortable. But they’re not gorgeous.
