$50,000 diamond encrusted Nikes

Specs: 11 carats of chocolate-colored diamonds outline the “swooshes” on a pair of Nike “So Cal” Air Force 1 “Supreme Max” runners.

The Nike limited editions were customized with the fancy colored diamonds by Laced Up owner Ernel Dawkins and C Couture boutique owner Rita Patel.

Stuart Weitzman - $1,000,000 - Retro Rose Pumps

More than 1,800 Kwiat diamonds weighing 100 carats were used to make the roses.

Ruby Slippers - $1,600,000 - Stuart Weitzman

 

In 2003 Stuart Weitzman created the “Ruby Slippers” in anticipation of a breakthrough starlet wearing them to that year’s Academy Awards. His inspiration was the original ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy.

However Mr. Weitzman ended up cancelling his shoe’s appearance. His spokesperson Jane Weitzman state: “We pulled the ruby shoes we were planning to show off at the Oscars out of respect for those fighting in Iraq.”

Today I was recalling the many pairs of moccasins I had as a teenager (some of which were quite beautiful with all of the beading).  These shoes were so comfortable and I loved them.

What do you think of these shoes??

This undated photo released by Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto, shows wooden qabaqib shoes inlaid with mother-of-pearl. These tall Ottoman qabaqib measure 26 cm, 10 inches in height. Qabaqib such as these were worn by women in Turkish bathhouses to elevate them above the heated floors. Ottoman dress inspired many European fashions and the soaring heights of some Ottoman qabaqib may have encouraged Venetian chopine makers to make chopines that rivaled qabaqib in elevation.

In this undated photo released by the Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto, shown are Spanish chopines before 1540. These tall Spanish chopines seem to confirm the late 15th century writer Alfonso Martinez de Toledo’s lament that there was hardly enough cork in Spain to satisfy women’s demands for chopines. By Toledo’s estimation, by the end of the 15th century, chopines had risen as high as the length of an elbow.
