Luxe Italian fashion designer Giuseppe Zanotti produced a stunning footwear design that is intended to serve as a Michael Jackson tribute. The footwear is exceptionally luxurious, boasting a sporty and secure silhouette. The upper is decked out with 120 black diamonds and 55 rubies. The sneakers are black and are adorned with two silver buckles for a more striking, complete aesthetic.

Giuseppe Zanotti's Michael Jackson tribute was released in conjunction with the King of Pop's birthday. The one-of-a-kind footwear is auctioned, with a bidding price starting at $15,000 USD and an estimation between $30,000-$50,000 USD. The proceeds from the shoes are being donated to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.

For the general public, Giuseppe Zanotti also designed and released an extra 1,999 Michael Jackson tribute pairs that are adorned with Swarovski crystals.
