R&B diva Beyoncé has once again ruffled the feathers of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). And this time it is because of her custom-made kicks, which are reportedly made from various animal skins, according to the New York Daily News.

Beyoncé is reportedly a fan of the Isabel Marant wedge sneaker, so she reportedly designed her own “King-Bey” shoes.

The high-end footwear manufacturers Perfectly Made Kicks (PMK) made the beige and tan, velcroed shoes per Beyoncé’s specifications, with the crooner reportedly selecting her own skins that included anacondas, stingrays, crocodiles, calves, and ostriches. PMK then weaved them in to the kicks by hand, which the company describes as “another world first.”

Not surprisingly, the fashionista was slammed by PETA for her animal-skin selections:

[The sneakers] come with a high price, PETA said in a statement. “And it’s paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed.”

Earlier this year, Beyonce was criticized by PETA for shamelessly sporting a mink coat at the presidential inauguration and for wearing leather during her Super Bowl half-time performance.

Beyoncé’s mogul hubby, Jay-Z, who is also a fan of PMK, also ordered a specially designed pair of trainers last year, which resembled the ever-popular Jordan 1 (pictured below) basketball sneaker. Mr. Carter named his sneaks Brooklyn Zoo 1s and he also chose to incorporate a few exotic skins like elephant-print, ostrich, python, boa, crocodile lizard, alligator, suede, and sting ray.


The “King-Bey” sneakers can be purchased through the PMK website for a mere $5,500.
