Kenneth Cole launches Kinky Boots collection


Kenneth Cole has partnered with Kinky Boots, the Tony Award winning musical, for a capsule shoe collection. Following consultation with Kinky Boots costume designer, Gregg Barnes, Kenneth Cole has also designed the red high heel pump featured in the opening act of the show.

The collection features three styles: a red patent leather peep-toe pump as well as two versions of a knee-high boot - one in black and white leopard, and one in black patent. Both of the knee-high boots have a red zipper detailing and a red patent leather insole and heel. All three styles will feature a "Kinky Boots by Kenneth Cole" logo embossed on the sole.

Kenneth Cole said in a statement, "Being the son of a women's shoe factory owner, Kinky Boots resonated with me on so many different levels. It was such an inspiring story, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to collaborate on a shoe collection that makes people look good, and do good by raising funds for HRC."

The Kinky Boots collection will retail from $150 to $400. The collection will be sold at Kenneth Cole stores, Kennethcole.com and select department stores.
