Christian Louboutin Gives Mika Michael Jackson Shoes

Mika was given Michael Jackson's custom shoesMika has been given Michael Jackson‘s designer shoes.

The King of Pop had hired famed footwear designer Christian Louboutin to create all his shoes for his comeback shows at London’s O2 arena, which were due to begin in July. Following his untimely death, Christian gave all the shoes to close friend Mika to wear at his own concerts.

“Christian Louboutin designed all of Michael Jackson’s shoes that he was supposed to be wearing for the O2 concerts. So when he died, Christian asked if I wanted them for my tour. They are amazing. One is a black soft leather lace-up which goes up to the ankle to support Michael while he was dancing,” Mika said.

However, the “We Are Golden” singer says he won’t wear one particular pair because he wouldn’t feel right: “There is a pair which must have been made for him to moonwalk in. They are gold with a metal toe and the soles are really smooth and slippy to make it easy to moonwalk in. I think they are the only pair I might not wear. It’s a little freaky to think he’d have worn those to do the moonwalk in.”
