Katy Perry's shoes have stirred controversy due to their resemblance to blackface since their release, and they might finally be removed from stores soon.

Two shoes from the Katy Perry Collections, the "Rue Face Slip On Loafers" and "Ora Face Block Heel Sandal," were designed with two eyes, a gold nose and red lips. This apparently drew comparisons to blackface makeup, and the scrutiny has forced Perry's team to recall the items, TMZ reported.

Both retailing at $129 at Walmart and Dillard's, the slides are available in beige and black, while the sandals come in either gold or black.

Sources told TMZ that Perry herself designed the shoes, and they were "never intended to be offensive."

"In order to be respectful and sensitive the team is in the process of pulling the shoes," the insider told the outlet.

Perry has received a lot of flak not only from social media users, but also fellow celebrities for her shoes' controversial design. One of them is Masika Kalysha, who called out the "Chained to the Rhythm" singer over the issue before the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The singer took to Instagram to share a snapshot of the black version of the "Rue Face Slip On Loafers," along with the question: "So we just gonna let Katy Perry slide?"

Others also slammed Perry on Twitter, with many insisting that her shoe design is clearly blackface.

"@katyperry are you actually serious right now?! blackface on a SHOE?? what is WRONG with you," one Twitter user wrote on the social media platform.

"@katyperry so this what we doing now?!?! Blackface shoes to go with @gucci blackface sweater?!?!" another person wrote.

"Now Katy Perry got blackface shoes," another user said. "All these different designs out here I have no other choice than to believe they doing this stuff on purpose."

This isn't the first time that Perry has received flak for the shoes. Back in August 2018, the pop star shared a snap of the shoes on her Instagram, and she received criticism from her followers.

Perry has also been accused of cultural appropriation multiple times over the past few years. She was slammed for dressing as a geisha for her performance at the 2013 AMAs. During the same year, she got flak for wearing cornrows in her hair in the music video for her song, "This Is How We Do."
