A fashion icon as much as he was a music icon, everything Prince wore in his career has become legendary in its own right — and his shoes are no exception.
His expansive collection of custom-made kicks went on display this weekend at Paisley Park, where you can view over 300 pairs of his unique shoes — which include everything from boots and platform sneakers to roller skates "and the stories behind them."
The exhibit, a limited-run installation called "The Beautiful Collection: Prince’s Custom Shoes," officially debuted on Friday, July 9 and will be included in all tours.
According to a news release, it's "the largest ever display to spotlight Prince’s footwear," and includes the boots used in the “Raspberry Beret” music video, his "signature Versace fabric heeled boots" and other shoes he made famous.
Accompanying the footwear will be "carefully crafted displays," video interviews with Prince's shoe designers — such as Donatella Versace — and, of course, Prince's music.
“Prince continuously pushed the boundaries of fashion, music, and culture in general,” Mitch Maguire, Paisley Park Managing Director and The Beautiful Collection Curator, said in the release.
“His expansive, incredible shoe collection is just one example of his artistic expression, personality, and lasting impact on fashion. When guests visit this exhibition, they will be immersed in the drama, taste, and complexity of Prince while also revealing some of the collaborators who worked so closely to bring his vision to life.”
Though the exhibit is not a permanent one, Paisley Park has not specified when the exhibit will end.
