Have you ever wondered how it feels to be so rich you can afford anything?
We’ve all had this recurring dream of acquiring copious amounts of wealth but that’s all it’s ever been, a dream. As we contemplate on that, there’s someone around the globe that has purchased the world’s most expensive shoe.
UK Designer Debbie Wingham has unveiled the world’s most expensive pair of shoes. The stiletto heels are encrusted with precious metals and rare stones — and feature a whopping $15.1 million(Kshs.1,510,000,000) price tag.
Wingham is famous for her opulent creations and has worked for many celebrities, royals, and wealthy elite over the course of her career. She is known for crafting the world’s most expensive dress, a Red Diamond Abaya gown, which was encrusted with over 2000 diamonds, including the world’s most expensive red diamond, and priced at $15.45 million (USD).
The perfectly symmetrical heels feature three-carat rare pink and one-carat blue diamonds, which alone cost over $128k (USD).There are four flawless three-carat diamonds and 1000 pointer diamonds set in platinum framing the piped and quilted details, which are meant to resemble a cake.
The shoes also feature solid gold zippers and soles, leather painted in 24 carat gold paint, and the stitching was done with 18 carat gold thread. Inside, the shoes are adorned with gold thread inlay.
The opulent shoes were commissioned by an unnamed family in Dubai to mark a special birthday.
We are packing our bags and leaving for Dubai so we can get birthday gifts like these. We would wear them once then sell them at the original price because we can think of a list of things to do with Kshs 1.5 billion.
From the look of them, do you think they are worth that price tag?
