World’s Most Expensive Shoes
Shoes originated as a way to keep one’s feet safe from the hard ground and all the pebbles, rocks or thorns which might be lurking on the ground. But with the changing times, shoes have become more of a style statement.
Shoes come in all shapes and sizes today. There is a wide variety of different styles of shoes available in the market today that people can choose from. Shoes might be expensive or they might be cheap depending upon the design or the place from where one might be getting those shoes. Designer shoes are very expensive and are considered to be a style statement.
Some of the most expensive shoes in the world are designed for specific people and are one of a kind. In this list is a pair of Nike custom made sneakers which have twelve chocolate colored diamonds making the Nike logo. The price tag for these is in the access of fifty thousand dollars.
Another of the most expensive shoes in the world is a pair of slippers worn by an Indian prince in the eighteenth century. They are said to have been encrusted with diamonds and rubies. They are said to be worth a hundred and sixty thousand dollars.
Another pair of shoes estimated at around five hundred thousand dollars is a pair of slippers encrusted with fourteen hundred colorless diamonds set in platinum weighing over thirty carets. Another diamond encrusted shoes sport roses made up of diamonds weighing about hundred carets fixed onto a nineteen forties style pair of high heels which are said to be for about a million dollars.
Yet, another pair of high heels amounting to around two million dollars sport one eighty five dollars of museum quality tanzanite gems and twenty eight carets of diamonds. Shoes have become a point of statement making in recent times.
