Giuseppe Zanotti Honors G.O.O.D Music's Cruel Summer with His Latest Kicks

G.O.O.D Music's 2012 album Cruel Summer took the rap world by storm with such hits as 'Clique' and 'New God Flow.1.' Though it's been four years since the album's initial release, its influence is still being picked up in music and even fashion.

Legendary shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti has previously collaborated with G.O.O.D Music founder and CEO Kanye West, so it's clear the designer is a very big fan of the label's music. Further proving his allegiance, Zanotti has created a Cruel Summer sneaker inspired by the album. The rap-influenced shoe features a leather mid-top with dual side-zip while the baroque metal flame appliqués pay homage to Zanotti's recent collaboration with Kanye West.

The sneakers are created in a firetruck red color, which pays tribute to another Kanye album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
