Raise your hand if you have a shoe addiction. I know, it’s a problem a lot of us suffer from, but what can you do? Shoes are just so pretty and we want to buy all of them. But don’t worry, the shoes we’re going to be talking about today are generally not for sale or cost so much none of us could possibly afford them. So this should be a safe environment, let’s just admire some of the most expensive shoes in the world.
1. The Marilyn Monroe Shoes – $1 Million
Judging by the name you’d think these shoes belonged to Marilyn Monroe or at least were custom made for her. Well, you’d be wrong, the thing that connects them to Marilyn are the Swarovski crystals. Those crystals used to be earrings that Marilyn Monroe wore. Quite underwhelming if you ask me.
2. Stuart Weitzman Platinum Guild Stilettos – $1.09 Million
Now these shoes are way more interesting. They have 464 diamonds on them and are made of platinum fabric which explains the pricetag. But they’re also transformer shoes. The diamonds can be taken out and worn as jewelry, how neat is that!
3. Tom Ford Custom Loafers By Jason Arasheben – $2 Million
It’s not just ladies who get to wear expensive and sparkly shoes. Nick Cannon wanted a cool pair of shoes, so he took a pair of Tom Ford shoes to a jewelry designer called Jason Arasheben and what you see is the result of that. These shoes are encrusted with 14000 diamonds and once you learn that the price starts making sense.
4. Stuart Weitzman Tanzanite Heels – $2 Million
So clearly Stuart Weitzman has a thing for making super expensive gem-encrusted shoes, but these are super special. You see, usually, his shoes only use one kind of gemstone, but these shoes feature both tanzanite and diamond. So two kinds of gemstones means 2 million, right? Weird flex, but ok.
5. Stuart Weitzman Cinderella Slippers – $2 Million
This Weitzman creation was inspired by Cinderella. The shoes are made of Italian leather, they have clear heels and of course, they have diamonds and crystals on them. The two shoes are not identical, the right one has a big 5-carat amaretto diamond in the middle. I mean it’s the closest you can get to a Cinderella glass slipper.
6. Stuart Weitzman Rita Hayworth Heels – $3 Million
These $3 million open toe shoes are made of chocolate brown satin and feature a flower on top. They also have a variety of gemstones in the center of that flower. There’s diamonds, rubies and sapphires which makes for a very colorful sparkle when the light catches it.
7. Harry Winston Ruby Slippers – $3 Million
These beautiful slippers were made in 1989 for the 50th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz. You can clearly tell they’re inspired by the ruby slippers that Dorothy wore. The ones in the film are just covered in sequins, but these are covered in diamonds and rubies, which makes them more true to the name. They’re also made in the right size to fit Judy Garland who played Dorothy.
8. Debbie Wingham High Heels – $15.1 Million
Designer Debbie Williams loves creating over the top pieces and these shoes are definitely at the top of her list. These shoes are meant to look like a dessert and we see what she was going for. These shoes are definitely giving us a gingerbread house or like waffle vibe. The zippers on them are made of actual gold and the shoes are made of leather that was painted with actual gold 24-carat paint.
9. The Passion Diamond Shoes – $17 Million
And we finally got to the most expensive pair of shoes in the world. These shoes are made of gold and diamonds and it took nine months to make them. They feature lots of small diamonds and two big ones, 15 carats apiece. They’re not for wearing out though, they’re currently kept for display at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
