SPARE £140,000 FOR NEW STILETTOS?
As supportive as I am with lavish spending on extravagant footwear I'm not sure even I could justify these.
British jewelry designer Christopher Michael Shellis has created a £140,000 pair of solid gold and diamond heels which are reportedly the most expensive shoes ever made.
"The aim of this was to create a unique form of jewellery which you can wear on your feet. It's a bit like if you found these on an archaeological dig in thousands of years time they would be regarded as a treasure—a treasure of the feet," explained Shellis in an interview with the UK's The Telegraph.
I don't suspect we'll see these specimens strutting around in Oz too soon but I'm sure they're perfect for someone attending the Royal Wedding?
