The new exhibit, titled The Beautiful Collection: Prince's Custom Shoes, will open on July 9 at Paisley Park, and tickets go on sale today. More than 300 pairs of Prince's shoes will be on display, many custom-made for his performances or music videos or in collaboration with designers and close friends, such as Donatella Versace. With so much to choose from, one of the biggest challenges for the Paisley Park team was actually narrowing down the assortment. Prince kept everything-including the green sequin boots he wore to perform 1985 American Music Awards, and the hand-illustrated booties he wore while attending the 1987 MTV VMAs. Some had to be revived for the exhibit. Some of these shoes were in storage for over 30 years, says Mitch Maguire, Paisley Park's Golden Goose Sale legacy preservationist and curator of the exhibit. A lot of work has gone into bringing them back to life.
