'World's most expensive shoes

The "world's most expensive shoes" have been valued at a staggering $15.1 million USD, according to Splash News. Encrusted with large, rare pink and blue diamonds, plus flawless white diamonds and another 1,000 pointer diamonds, the larger jewels alone are worth in excess of $13 million.

'World's most expensive shoes

The creator, 35-year-old British designer Debbie Wingham, is known for making ultra-pricey must-haves, including the "Most Expensive Black Diamond Dress" in Dubai five years ago.

The diamond-studded shoes will be her fourth "world's most expensive" showcase, which includes the world's most expensive cake, which she made in 2015.

via Splash News -- The opulent kicks were reportedly commissioned by a family from the United Arab Emirates, who wanted "a unique piece of diamond art for a loved one's birthday gift," according to a release from the artist. "Some people inherit grandma's brooch, others a portfolio of jewels."

All of the diamonds in the shoes are set in platinum and the zips and the plaque underneath the shoes are solid gold. It took hundreds of man hours to stitch them together, using 18 carat gold thread. Even the leather coating process was painted in 24 carat gold paint.

The flowers are made from leather, moulded into the shape of Arabian jasmines, and also incrusted with diamonds. A rose gold accent was added to give a slight contrast. The gems are set in piped and quilted details, which resemble cake decoration.

    ______________
    and hype the price tag up because you caught the leaves falling out the sky, so they never even touched the ground. Talking about "Deez iz fresh leaves from the heavens. Gimme my money." LOL

    *deep sigh*
    okay, i can appreciate the hand-crafted artistry and the value of the rocks... that being said, this looks like gingerbread and fondant.
    and is it just me who's disgusted on some level with this garish display of wealth???? i don't care if you really are wealthy, it's still tacky TO ME! i wonder if it's 'new' money 'cause this is an ostentatious mess!

    *goes back to zappos to order my classic reeboks* ROFL!!!!!

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Why though, me no likey

  • Ms.Vanilla

    I was thinking the same thing. Why put that much wealth on the ground. I'd be walking right behind them hoping a diamond fell off.

  • Blaque Mahogany

  • Yoni7

    I can get the same shoe for $9.99 with a coupon and 50% at the Beauty Supply store. Came from the same sweatshop they made the Jordan retro 2086's in.

  • Anunnaki

    Lmao ok. Yesss

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i doubt they will actually wear them (not outside, and most likely not beyond the birthday celebration, if at all) it's more about 'bragging rights' because a luxury vehicle is so passé dontcha know. this is way beyond the party that guy had at the club for is 1 y/o, smh. THIS is way beyond my middle class taxpayer sensibilities, LOL!

  • Not Down With The BS

    Sandra, the shoe value in the headline/title is incorrect and does not match the shoe value in the body.

  • Bam Bam Li

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I was just about to mention that, too.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I'm guessing they aren't meant to be worn, EVER.. right? And why would anyone want such extravagant & expensive shoes with (what looks like) cake frosting and cookie designs on them? That looks so damn tacky to me.

  • pecancandy

    Looks like a gingerbread house

  • starbright9449

  • noireyblanca

  • MsChocCookie

    Ugly, the world is fond of it's own!!

  • http://www.tiffanyinthecity.wordpress.com/ Tiffanyinthecity

    So the REAL designer of the shoes is Chris Campbell, a BLACK man. Not sure why this white lady is getting all the credit. ? If you look at the other shoes he’s designed, they all look like desserts. They were probably commissioned to make a dessert themed shoe. ????? They’re still ugly though. ?

  • Elle

    If i go buy this if i had this you know im crazy. You can go right out there to hobby lobby buy sets and put them on any shoe u so desire.

    PS can someone tell me is that cake icing to top the whole mess off?

  • Nonya Bizness

    I just looked at his shoes. He has a store called Shoe Bakery. His shoes are hella cute and creative. I don't have anywhere to wear them to, but they're cute. I saw a white pair that would look cute under a wedding gown. It would be nice if Chris' shoes could somehow be talked about/advertised more. Maybe a blogger could do a post on Shoe Bakery?

  • ShWa

    No ma'am....

  • ebonics

    Looks like a gaudy, knock off brand name cake. Atrocious.. and super tacky. I expect to see BeYAWNce rockin them in no time!

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    Pretty-ish. I don't like the large part, looks like a camel's foot. I like shoes that hide the toes and with less baggage if you know what I mean.
