Kylie Jenner gave her 144 million Instagram followers a glimpse of her extensive shoe collection earlier this week. Now the billionaire lip-kit mogul is facing criticism over the extravagant display of wealth while the Amazon rain forest in Brazil is on fire.
The 22-year-old reality star took to her Instagram stories on Thursday to show off some new designer shoe purchases. On display: a pair of crystal-embellished Gucci sandals that cost $1,250, two of the same $995 Balenciaga styles in both black and white, and brown quilted leather slip-on sandals from Bottega Veneta.

Jenner seemed to acknowledge she has a shoe obsession as she revealed more of her closet while posing the question: “I have a problem?”
She’s been receiving backlash on social media ever since. One fan tagged the beauty entrepreneur in a Tweet reading: “I love the Kardashians and all but no one needs this many shoes. The earth is dying please donate instead.”

Another user simply wrote: “Kylie Jenner has enough money to help save the Amazon rain forest. But instead, she is buying her 650th pair of shoes.” Meanwhile, another commented that the least Jenner could do was share what’s happening to the rain forest to raise awareness.
