Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard gossip about a feud between the Carters and the Kardashian-Wests. The rumored tiff between two of pop culture’s biggest couples has led to countless tabloid headlines and ongoing speculation, but today it seems the drama has finally been put to rest. Kanye West updated his Instagram this afternoon with a smiling portrait of Beyoncé and Jay-Z that was captioned: “famleeeeee.” A telling gesture made poignant by Beyoncé’s choice of footwear.

With Public Desire's affordable PVC mules on her feet, the star echoed West’s sleek take on the wedge heel into an already fashion-forward look. With Yeezy Season 5 introducing a near identical wedge the style fits in with the clear footwear that West and wife, Kim Kardashian-West have helped to popularize. Beyoncé's emerald, tan, and purple J.W. Anderson ensemble from Spring 2018 was a bold choice, especially with the addition of a coordinating fanny pack. Topped off with cat-eye sunglasses and her hair in flowing blonde waves, the outfit was pure diva.

Though her heels weren't Yeezy Beyoncé has embraced West's aesthetic in the past. In her visual album Lemonade, she sports a Marni Senofonte-styled combo of Season 3 leggings and crop top with a Lynn Ban necklace. The two couples may have had their ups and downs, but they’ve always been respectful of each other’s talents and the cheery social update combined with the outfit choice bodes well for the future. After all, friendship—and a great pair of pvc heels—are more important than the rumor mill.
