Fashion designer launches £475 football boots with three-inch heels

BUYERS of these new football boots will be well-heeled — as they cost £475 and you can’t even play in them.

Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo added 3-inch heels to a pair of Nikes “to create a new and compelling style”.


The quilted leather shoes are being sold at fashion house Comme des Garcons’ London store — though it is unclear who will buy them.

A source said: “If you play footie in them you’d probably break an ankle.

“And the price tag means it’s likely that only Premier League wags can afford a pair.”

The shoe boasts quilted leather in either black or white and keeps the distinctive Nike swoosh along the side.
