Pharrell Williams is making another fashion statement this time with his sparkling footwear.  The rapper has recently been spotted wearing some shiny kicks that are decked out with 1600 Swarovski crystals. 

A rep from Swarovski tells Billboard that Pharrell got the idea of blinging out his Stan Smith Adidas after seeing a pair of "crystallized platform shoes."  Apparently, "Skateboard P" teamed with the company's creative team to select the size, shape and color of the crystals for his customized kicks. 

The 1600 crystals took over ten hours to place on the shoes.  Swarovski is also holding out hope of working with hip-hop's hottest star in the future.  

On Instagram, Pharrell thanked Swarovski for helping him to customize his shoes.

"Thank you @official_swarovski for customizing my Stan Smith sneakers @adidasoriginals @nbcsnl #SNL."
