Just when we thought Kanye West's elusive "Air Yeezy 2" sneaker was just a pipe dream, Nike FINALLY released its first public production of the shoe. Streething got the scoop and showered us with amazing up-close images of the highly-anticipated sneaker, which Kanye actually sported at the 2011 VMAs (see above) and rocked last fall in black. The original "Air Yeezy" hit stores in April 2009, so fans have been waiting THIS long for the second shoe debut. Yeah, yeah we know 'Ye has been a wee bit busy, you know, working on those high fashion collections in Paris, but we cannot wait to see these bad boys in real life. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Props to our friends at Fashion Indie for finding this GEM of a hot topic. If you're anything like us, you probably haven't even fully processed all the information bring transmitted to your oculars right now. You're probably thinking, "What the heck are Tevas doing on MTV Style??" Or you saw that Christopher Kane tip, did a double take, and were CONVINCED the fashion blogs had banded together for an elaborate style Rick Roll. We feel you. But doubt us not, little ones. The genius design mind behind laser cut neon, galaxy print, and gel-filled clutches is, in fact, also responsible for these bizarro, orthopedic-looking sandals. Just... WHY??

New mommy Beyoncé and her baby girl Blue Ivy stepped out in NYC yesterday in THE cutest mother-daughter ensemble we have ever seen. Bey sported an open white blazer paired with rolled-up khakis, oversized sunglasses, and leopard mouse Marc Jacobs shoes. The most 'dorbs part is that Blue Ivy ALSO wore a head-to-toe beige ensemble (OK, fine, it was a white onesie) with matching gold Marc Jacobs mouse slippers! Awwwww. These tiny shoes retail for a whopping $66, but we kiiiiiiind of think it's totally worth it, right? (This is where you start nodding your head in agreement.)

madonna shoes

Shoes from Madonna's new Truth or Dare line.

We DARE you not to squeal with sartorial delight after reading this: Madonna is making shoes. *Immediately burns shoe closet, turns up "Burning Up," cries* Yes (slash FINALLY) the "Girl Gone Wild" singer/salacious style Queen of the fashion-y Pop galaxy has partnered with Aldo Group Inc. to create some killer dance floor-ready kicks via her Truth or Dare label. An early image of the fall '12 collection teases us with a pretty pump, a studded stiletto complete with mini bow, and a red carpet-friendly-slash-sexy gilded heel. They're fine and wearable and kind of affordable ($89 to $349), BUT we're shivering under our desks imagining those promised knee-high bangin' boots that Madonna currently lives in (paired with those perpetual fingerless gloves), which we we live and J'DIE for.

They're often the last thing you think about when assembling an outfit, but your shoe decision can definitely make or break your ensemble. We're not saying it has to be all platforms and stilettos, but a great pair of shoes can really tie a look together. This week, we celebrate the finishing footwear of Hollywood PYT Kristen Stewart, UK model Amy Childs, and elegant actress Emily Blunt. All three ladies opted for minimal accessorizing save a SLAMMIN' pair of shoes.

Lil Wayne Sneaker Line

By now you might've peeped some pieces from Lil Wayne's recently launched clothing line TRUKFIT (which he's rocking in the photo above), but word on the street is that Weezy's also amid signing a huge sneaker deal. He'll be following in the footsteps of fellow rappers Kanye West, who created the Nike Air Yeezy in 2009, and Jay-Z, who collabed with Reebok in the early 2000s for the S. Carter sneaker. WWD reports that Weezy is "close to inking his own sneaker deal with a major footwear brand," and Lil Wayne told Vibe magazine that it will not be Nike or Reebok.

Ugg Shoe Collection

OK, this is really important. We all know that it's super easy to pick on Uggs. Mostly because as shearling sock-boots favored by Australian beach-combing hippies and ladies who own "going-out sweats," they pretty much put the "Ugg" in "FuggbarfgrossNO." But the thing is, I actually have dear friends who are legitimately attractive and intelligent who recycle, read books, know how to cook and listen to good music who swear by them as the warmest and most comfortable shoes known to foot. And then there's this other thing where people I admire, like Azealia Banks or stylist Carlyne de Dudzeele Cerf (who is like BESTIES with Alaia) also wear them. Going so far as to be photographed in black ones for 'Interview' Magazine.

Basically, there are certain days when I wonder what it would be like to wear squishy, toasty flats lined in sheep fur and think good thoughts about them. So when Ugg released their newest collection of ladyshoes by way of Ugg Collection, I, along with the fine folks at Refinery29, was pleasantly surprised with the sculpted heels UNTIL I realized how extortionately expensive the shoes were.

Kanye West Shoes

When Kanye West debuted his first-ever spring/summer 2012 collection last fall, there were a few particular pieces that stood out on the runway—mainly those shoes! Kanye collabed with Giuseppe Zanotti to create the pearly stiletto stunners, and it looks like they've been picked up by cool-kid French retailer Colette. They tweeted a pic of the kicks on the shelf at their store, but there's no telling how much these bad boys will cost.

Nike Foamposite Galaxy sneakers are already on eBay.

In an effort to supplement the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend, Nike planned to release a brand new sneaker to punctuate the occasion. With the stellar weekend as inspiration, Nike concocted a new foamposite sneaker (once the signature style of Penny Hardaway four-time NBA All-Star who started his career on the Orlando Magic, the city playing host to this year's celebratory weekend!) with funky on-trend galaxy print. Unfortunately, like many other sneaker releases, the debut of the new kicks caused some pretty dangerous levels of hysteria.

We haven't heard a peep out of Kanye West about the state of his foray into fashion following that epic Twitter rant back in early January, but we have heard that he plans to show again at Paris Fashion Week in the coming weeks. And though we haven't heard about the state of his signature KANYE WEST label, we do know that he seems to be as committed to fashion as ever as evidenced by his shirtless appearance in Vogue celebrating Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci, as well as his support for designer Mark Fast at London Fashion Week. But if there's any new news that trumpets Yeezy's commitment to the garment arts, it's the fact that he designed the shoes for up-and-coming Australian designer Dion Lee's debut show. Also? These shoes are RAD.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
