Kim Zolciak is now going through shoe boxes in her Atlanta home, hoping to save it from bankruptcy.
The 45-year-old former Real Housewives Of Atlanta star shared videos on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday in which she tries to sell expensive designer sneakers from her estranged husband Kroy Biermann for a few hundred dollars.
In addition to trying to make some money off her ex’s shoes, Kim also posted videos of some of her own designer shoes in hopes of making a quick sale.
The reality star appears to be doing everything she can to sell her family’s assets to avoid foreclosure on their $3 million home near Atlanta, having previously sold other home and fashion items, including parts of her wig collection.
Although Kroy has previously “begged” Kim to allow the sale of their home so they can purchase smaller separate homes, she has made legal maneuvers to try to delay both their divorce proceedings and his efforts to sell the house.
Getting desperate: Kim Zolciak, 45, resorted to offering several pairs of shoes for sale on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday as she tries to avoid a planned November foreclosure from her and Kroy Biermann’s Atlanta home
Sharing the load: Kim shared a video of two of her own sets of luxury shoes, as well as two pairs of designer sneakers owned by her estranged husband
Kroy’s lawyer has previously theorized that Kim hopes to file for bankruptcy, which could delay the foreclosure but also force the feuding exes to live under the same roof for an extended period of time.
In her latest post, Kim showed off a set of Dior high-top sneakers from Kroy.
The shows featured a translucent gray covering atop panels with over-the-top designs featuring robot dinosaurs and pink flowers.
Although they came from a major fashion house, the flashy shoes look a bit flimsy and flimsy.
“These are Kroy’s Dior shoes. These are So cute,” Kim said as she showed off different angles for the high tops.
‘They have been worn once. Excellent condition – perfect condition, I should say,” she corrected herself.
She told her 3.4 million followers that the size 13 shoes retailed for $600.
Next up was a pair of Gucci high lace-up boots in “perfect condition” that belonged to Kim.
She said they were “new” and “never worn,” although it’s unclear whether she had had them for a while or if they were purchased during her family’s last bankruptcy crisis.
She noticed a bunch of black mink balls dangling from the ends of the long laces.
Fancy: First up was a pair of flimsy-looking, garishly designed $600 Dior men’s shoes in size 13, which Kroy reportedly only wore once
Of note: Next up was a pair of Gucci high lace-up boots in “perfect condition” that belonged to Kim. There were black mink balls at the end of the long laces
Priced to move: Kroy had a set of black and white Louboutin high-top sneakers that were worn once and also on sale for $600
Back in black: Kim claimed to have worn only once a set of European size 39 Balmain heels with clear plastic sheaths, which also fetched $600
She noted that the boots, with Gucci’s monogram design and chunky gold heels, were a European women’s size 39, which she said was equivalent to a US size 9.
She hoped to get more than double what Kroy’s sneakers sold for with an asking price of $1,250.
Her next clip advertised a pair of black and white size 13 Louboutin high-top sneakers, which were believed to be Kroy’s based on the size. She sold his shoes again for $600.
Again, it appeared he had only worn them once, and Kim said the pair were in “excellent condition.”
Kim’s final pair of the day was a pair of pointy black Balmain heels with intriguing clear plastic casings that would have wrapped around her ankles.
Once again, she only wore them once and sold the set in European size 39 for $600.
The shoes had unusual triangular heels with blunt edges and were labeled “cute,” “so cute” and “super comfortable.”
Kim has been trying to sell her and her family’s belongings in recent months in an effort to avoid foreclosure from her family home, although it is unclear whether it would even be possible to make enough from the sale of her luxury goods.
Kroy has said the house will now be foreclosed on in November unless they can sell it before then or suddenly catch up on their mortgage payments.
Getting desperate: Kim has resorted to selling luxury and home goods in recent months, including some of her wigs and her daughter Brielle Biermann’s luxury bags
Bickering: Kroy begged a judge to let him sell their $3 million home to buy separate properties, but he accused Kim of delaying the sale so she could file for bankruptcy; still from Don’t Be Tardy
In July, she even resorted to selling her eldest daughter Brielle’s luxury bags, including a Louis Vuitton duffel bag that she listed for $20,000.
Kim has said that fans can pay her for the items via Zelle or Cash App, although it is unknown if anyone has purchased any of her items.
Followers of Kim and Kroy were surprised Tuesday to see that the former NFL player had apparently listed their home for $3.2 million, but TMZ reported that the listing was fake and not created or authorized by Kroy.
Kroy has previously accused Kim of being the instigator of their financial problems, which he attributed to her alleged gambling addiction.
Kroy, who looked unrecognizable this week when the normally clean-shaven ex-athlete was spotted sporting a thick beard, has tried to fight Kim’s attempts to delay their divorce in court.
Late last month, she tried to get the divorce dismissed again by claiming that she and Kroy had had sex “repeatedly” since his second divorce filing.
But Kroy admitted in his response that the couple had had sex, but said the sex did not mean his desire for a divorce had diminished.
In a Lonely Place: If Kroy can’t sell the house and it is foreclosed on, it could be put up for auction and possibly purchased at a relatively low bid, depriving the couple of money above their mortgage value to help pay for more modest future houses
The football star has suggested that Kim’s delaying tactics could backfire and lead to their home being foreclosed on, as he hopes to sell it before that happens.
Bankruptcy could be devastating for the couple, and not just because of the seven-year impact on their credit rating.
It would likely be a public auction, and any amount the eventual buyer pays on what’s owed on the mortgage would go to Kroy and Kim.
However, the auction may allow someone to pick up the house for much less than it is worth, leaving the couple with little to no additional money to then pay for separate housing once they are effectively homeless.
