Kinky Boots: First the Musical, Now the Actual Boots (Are You Surprised?)

Share

“Kinky Boots” as a movie was so-so in the U.S. But now thanks to Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein, it’s a Tony Award winning musical. How long did you think it would take for someone to make the actual boots? Into the fray jumps publicity-loving marketing expert Kenneth Cole. He’s manufacturing a line of Kinky Boots for the fall. All proceeds will go the Kenneth Cole Foundation which is in turn supporting the Human Rights Campaign, a LGBT advocacy group. It’s all good! The boots are priced from $150-$400, but if a buyer presents a “Kinky Boots” ticket stub, they get 20% off.
