The ''Thriller'' hit-maker had hired Mika's good friend Christian Louboutin to design all the fancy footwear for his ''This Is It'' concerts. But after Michael''s sudden death, Mika, 26, ended up with the lot.
Mika, whose ''The Boy Who Knew Too Much'' album will be out next week, has now talked about the shoes. "Christian Louboutin designed all of Michael Jackson's shoes that he was supposed to be wearing for the O2 concerts," the Mirror quoted him as saying.
"So when he died, Christian asked if I wanted them for my tour. They are amazing. One is a black soft leather lace-up which goes up to the ankle to support Michael while he was dancing. Then there is the pair which must have been made for him to moonwalk in. They are gold with a metal toe and the soles are really smooth and slippy to make it easy to moonwalk in.
"I think they are the only pair I might not wear. It's a little freaky to think he'd have worn those to do the moonwalk in. Then again, who knows, it might give me some magic power to help me dance rather than just jumping around the stage like an idiot," he added.
