The 23-year-old Jersey Shore star is known for her outrageous partying, infamous hair-do and recently hitting an Italian police car. So what is the recent buzz around the Jersey Shore starlet? Snookie is using her reality fame to make even more money by expanding her shoe business.
Women’s Wear Daily reported that Snookie has partnered with Long Island, NY-based footwear company MeyeWorld to create Snooki by Nicole Polizzi: a line of flip-flops and wedge sandals. This is not the first time Snookie has dabbled in the footwear industry; earlier this year she launched a line of sneaker-inspired slippers.
“I’m very pleased and excited to be working with Nicole on developing her namesake line of beach footwear and sandals,” said Danny Kaminer, founder and CEO of MeyeWorld, in a written statement on WWD. “Combining Nicole’s unique style and taste with our great design is going to result in some exciting new product for the market.”
Snookie is a huge fan of pickles, which is why one of her sandals will be adorned with a pickle theme. The pickle-print flip-flop and other styles will range in prices from $15-$50. Her line is said to be in stores just in time for your holiday shopping, followed by a new spring collection release in 2012.
