Khanyi once admitted that that she owned over 600 pairs of shoes, so she probably has a lot of heels to giveaway. Her footwear takes up two rooms in her house!
Some of her favourite heels include shoes from luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Christian Louboutin
“Your shoes are assets. Shoes to me are the equivalent of collecting expensive works of art. I have shoes for all occasions. Some shoes, I will never wear – they are just there to decorate my shoe closet and home. Other shoes are waiting for a special occasion, such as my daughter’s graduation,” she told People magazine in 2015.
Khanyi is giving away all sorts of shoes – heels, flats and sneakers.
Some of the Red Room star’s fans noted that women who had criticized her for bleaching her skin were hoping to get their hands on her precious heels.
“Please go back to your tweets, check those who used to say you are bleaching your skin, I see some are here asking for pairs,” one tweep wrote.

Sadly, Khanyi wears a size two and a half, so not many women will fit in her shoes!
