Shoe Q&A: What is the most expensive pair of shoes ever made?
Ever wondered what the most expensive shoes ever made look like? The answer is currently a pair of solid gold and diamond shoes, pictured above, valued at £140,000. Now however much your love your shoes, that's surely a crazy price to pay. Especially when they don't even look remotely wearable!
Despite being made from solid gold, the shoes look seriously flimsy and are more accurately described by their creator as being 'jewellery for the feet'. Their designer, Christopher Michael Shellis, is more usually a jewellery designer and this heritage certainly shows in his work. Best suited to a Princess or other dignatory who does not need to spend a great deal of time standing, they are more ornament than footwear.
So if you're looking to spend some serious moolah on shoes, and these don't quite figure in your desires (or your budget) why not check out the most expensive shoes on Net-a-Porter instead: the eminently more wearable Christian Louboutin Sexy Strass Swarovski crystal peep toe pumps? You can pick them up here for a comparatively low £2,095
