Katy Perry's shoe that is under scrutiny for resembling blackface will be taken off the shelf.
Katy's shoes can be found at retailers like Dillard's and Walmart -- and a couple of her designs feature what looks similar to blackface ... the "Rue Face Slip On Loafers" and its high-heeled counterpart, "Ora Face Block Heel Sandal."
The "face" shoes have two eyes, a nose and red lips on them, and they come in black and beige. The black one ilooks a lot like classic blackface makeup, which the fashion world does not seem to recognize time and again.
The "face" heeled sandals are also problematic ... and Katy's catching major heat for having the shoes on store shelves. Even singer Masika Kalysha is calling for Katy to answer for this, saying on social media ... "So we just gonna let Katy Perry slide?"
Sources connected to Katy say these specific shoes are just part of an entire line of shoes and they were never intended to be offensive. However, we're told, "In order to be respectful and sensitive the team is in the process of pulling the shoes."
