10 Most Expensive Shoes In The World
Getting ready for a night out? Wondering what an expensive sapphire slipper would look like on your dainty little feet?
Shoes – and not diamonds – are a girls best friend. Women everywhere can’t get enough shoes, while their boyfriends and husbands despair.
If you have a fetish for shoes, too – and if you’re a woman, you absolutely must have one – it’s probably been your dream to own a super expensive pair of shoes.
You know the kind – diamonds on the laces, gold on the sole and ruby on the heel.
Of course, most of us can’t afford to step out in that kind of beauty. But we can at least dream.
If your fondness for shoes extends to all things beautiful, opulent and luxurious, join Beauty and Tips as we take a look at these…
Top 10 most expensive shoes in the world
Stuart Weizmann Diamond Dream Stilettos
Let’s face it, any shoe that has diamonds in them is going to be pretty swanky – and pretty gosh darn expensively.
The Diamond Dream Stilettos are appropriately named. The best thing is that the diamonds in question shine super bright and beam like all good diamonds should!
The pride tag for these is a bit high – $500,000 – but the reason for that high price tag is because the Stilettos don’t contain one or two diamonds but one thousand four hundred and twenty two.
They’re basically the dream shoe, the kind that only millionaires can wear.
In fact, they were worn by Anika Noni Rose when she walked down the red carpet at the 2007 Academy Awards. She gleamed that night as anyone who subsequently wears the shoes will gleam.
Not jealous at all.
The Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers
You’ve seen the movie The Wizard of Oz. We all have. And those lipstick red ruby shoes that Dorothy wears? They’re real. They still exist.
And they’re worth $612,000.
It’s hardly surprising that footwear adorned by the one and only Judy Garland is worth so much. Moreover, these ruby slippers aren’t just any old slippers she wore – they’re iconic, known to millions who’d love to wear them.
Judy actually wore a number of different ruby shoes while filming The Wizard of Oz and only three still exist. The one we’re talking about here was sold at auction, while another was held at auction – but no one was willing to meet the hefty 2 million dollars starting price.
We think you need to have a word with your partner …
Stuart Weitzman’s Retro Rose Pumps
To look at these babies, you wouldn’t think they were worth a million dollars. To first impressions, they even look like something you might have in your wardrobe.
But these are very special shoes that contain a hundred carats of 1800 kwat diamonds.
These diamonds make up the roses, while a further 400 precious stones are dotted around the shoes.
First impressions are clearly not everything …
Stuart Weitzman’s Marilyn Mondoe Shoes
Unfortunately, the famous actress herself didn’t actually wear these shoes. Instead, these shoes that twinkle with Swarovski crystals were inspired by the tragic actress who also inspired countless women all over the world.
Regina King wore them at the 2005 Oscars and they’re reckoned to be worth over a million dollars.
Stuart Weitzman Platinum Gold Stilettos
This pair of gorgeous pencil heels consists of an incredible 464 diamonds.
Remarkably, you can remove each diamond with your own hand and wear them around your neck!
They’re worth over a million bucks and were won at the Academy Awards by actress Laura Harring who needed to be escorted around the venue by an expert team of bodyguards! Amazing.
Just keep telling yourself that they’re only shoes …
Stuart Weitzman’s Ruby Slippers
This time it isn’t the famous ruby shoes worn by Judy Garland in the hit movie The Wizard of Oz, but these beauties were inspired by the film.
A grand total of 642 rubies and a slab of platinum are what make these slippers worth around $1.5 million.
They were unveiled for the first time in 2003 and look almost as good as the originals.
Stuart Weitzman’s Tanzanite Heels
For this pair of beautiful heels, Weitzman partner up with jewellery designer Eddie Le Vian. The result is a sparkling pair of fantastical shoes that wouldn’t look out of place in a fantasy movie.
With 185 karats of blue tanzanite gemstones and a whopping 28 karats of diamonds, it’s no surprise that these opulent shoes are worth a stunning 2 million dollars.
Just imagine if they gave you blisters …
Stuart Weitzman’s Cinderella Slippers
Weitzman is clearly inspired by female-driven fantasy fiction. If it’s not the Wizard of Oz that’s firing his imagination with shimmering diamonds, it’s Cinderella.
Here we have the famous Cinderella Slippers that are adorned with 565 Kwat diamonds and Italian leather.
We just wonder what the ugly step sisters would have thought of them. They’d definitely be jelly …
Stuart Weitzman’s Rita Hayworth Heels
In her heyday, Rita Hayworth was one of the most in-demand (and beautiful) actresses in Tinsel Town.
Today, her Hollywood legend lives on, with Stuart Weitzman preserving her memory with this pair of deep chocolate shoes that are worth $3 million.
Of course, the price isn’t down to the fact that Rita was the inspiration. The high price is down to the fact that each shoe contains a cluster of diamonds, rubies and sapphires. These shoes are meant to represent the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and they do it perfectly.
House of Harry Winston’s Ruby Slippers
And so onto the worlds most expensive pair of shoes.
For the third time in this list, Dorothy’s iconic Ruby Slippers make an appearance.
These aren’t the originals worn by Judy Garland on the big screen, but are in fact a 1988 recreation that are as faithful to the originals as possible.
They’re studded with 4,650 karats and are worth $3 million.
All we can say is – we want them!
Now, where’s that credit card…
