Nicki Minaj wasn’t playing when she declared Giuseppe Zanotti heels, “the monster shoe.” From sneakers to pumps to heel-less sandals and wedges, Zanotti has it all–and celebs are clear fans.
Zanotti’s star client list reads like a who’s who of Hollywood. Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Cassie to Keri Hilson has been spied in a pair of their pumps or wedge heels:
2. Nicholas Kirkwood
Though Nicholas Kirkwood of course has his share of regular pumps, he makes a splash by playing with platforms, along with alluring lace ups, and colors:

Ruthie Davis’s neon, spiked, look-at-me heels have been worn by everyone from Amber Rose to Beyoncé.
