Shoes, glorious shoes! If, like me, you have a bit of a shoe fetish, then prepare to fall in love with some of the beauties in today’s list. All but two of these shoes are creations by world-renowned shoe guru Stuart Weitzman. Whether they’re worth that much money is another question, but hey, if you’re going to cry ‘cos you’re broke, at least you’ll be crying in some gemstone-encrusted designer heels.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the most expensive shoes in the world.
10. Stuarts Weitzman’s $500,000 Stilettos:
Known as the “Diamond Dream Stilettos,” these shoes will knock your socks off! Not that you’d be wearing socks while sporting these heels, but you get the point. The shoes are made from over 1,420 diamonds, that’s more than 30 carats of the sparkling stones! They came into the spotlight after gracing the feet of Anika Noni Rose at the ’07 Oscars and have since become one of the most sought-after pair of shoes in the world.
9. Dorothy’s $666,000 Ruby Slippers:
These slippers are one of the more impressive pairs on the list because, unlike most of the others, they don’t have real gemstones giving them most of their inherent value. That’s right, the ruby slippers actually are made with bright red sequins instead of rubies. Rather, the value in these shoes lies in the fact that they are the most iconic pair of shoes in the history of film. Only 4 pair of the original shoes used in the filming are known to exist today, and they are one of the most coveted movie memorabilia items, giving them the astonishing value you see above.
