Description


Prince's personally-owned and -worn bright yellow custom-made high-heeled shoes, featuring a white leather interior and yellow satin exterior. The zippers on the sides are decorated with large peace symbol charms. The rubber soles are marked "Topy." In very good to fine condition, with general wear including scuffs and small tears to fabric, all evidence of considerable use. Prince can be seen wearing this exact type of yellow shoe in photographs spanning several years, from 1986 to 1992. Includes a letter of authenticity from Jeff Gold, the owner of Recordmecca and a former executive vice president/general manager of Warner Bros. Records, who worked closely with Prince during the 1990s, and art directed numerous album covers for him, including ‘Diamonds & Pearls,’ ’Love Symbol,’ and ‘The Hits/The B-Sides.’ He writes, in part: "This letter is to authenticate a pair of custom made yellow fabric high heel shoes owned and worn onstage and during photo shoots by Prince. Numerous photographs show Prince wearing identical shoes on stage, and these shoes exhibit wear consistent with Prince's exuberant stage performances...These shoes were acquired via a former Paisley Park employee." Prince wore these boots during the Sign o’ the Times tour in 1987, a 34-show concert series that toured exclusively in Europe. In addition to giving the diminutive performer extra height while on stage, these highly stylish boots are in keeping with Prince’s trademark flair and innovative gender-fluid style—a brilliant, museum-quality pair of stage-worn boots from the legendary entertainer.
