Giuseppe Zanotti and French fashion, design and art boutique Colette have collaborated to create Swarovski crystal-encrusted bullet ballet flats. The black canvas flats have two small bullet holders at the heels in which to place one silver and one gold bullet-shaped accessory.

The ballerina shoes are a Spring/Summer Cruise Collection 2010 exclusive for Colette and run about $310.00 EU including VAT or about $450 US.
