Beyonce under fire for her custom kicks

Beyonce has come under critism and provoked anger with animal rights groups, notably PETA, after it emerged that she had enlisted  PMK (Perfectly Made Kicks) , a company who ‘pimp up’ sneakers for those who have more money than sense, to recreate an Isabel Marant wedge trainer with a plethora of animal, reptile, bird and aquatic skins: stingray, ostrich, calf fur, crocodile and anaconda.

“Summoned by King Bee and given the task to create a custom design worthy of her approval, PMK takes the Isabel Marant sneaker wedge back to the beginning of time and gives it what they call the Eden treatment,” the PMK website proudly states. “A hybrid of land and sea skins are used to create this handcrafted creation. Stingray, Ostrich, calfs fur, Crocodile, and Anaconda give the already impeccable design attitude and the tones of white mixed with gold stitched details produces a feeling of elegance, mimicking the southern belle’s sweet and fierce persona. Perfectly made describes this design best [sic].”
