So just how do you make the most expensive shoes in the world? Kathryn Wilson’s solution was to slather them in precious, precious diamonds. Wilson was commissioned to make a custom pair of kicks for a Ronald McDonald House charity auction. Whether you find the heels fashionably amazing or not, the facts are stunning!
“Auctioned in New Zealand for the equivalent of $418,450, the shoes required a full-scale security contingent to keep the 21.18 carats of diamonds safe. It took Wilson 50 over hours to make the shoes by hand, often staying up into the wee hours of the night, her eyes squinting over her delicate work.”
“So, you’re totally grabbing a pair for your next night out, right? We mean, they are a great way to dress up a business-casual outfit for after-work drinks. May we also recommend a bodysuit made of molten gold, several assistants fanning you with palm fronds, and perhaps a festive 24-carat grill?” –Refinery 29
