Who doesn’t love a great pair of shoes? After a pair of vintage Roger Vivier shoes (made for Princess Soraya of Iran in 1962) were auctioned off for a record-breaking high of $26,629.06 at current exchange, MSN.com put together a list of the most expensive shoes in the world. All the shoes are available for purchase online and come with a big price tag; although they seem like a bargain when compared with Princess Soraya’s jewel-and-silver encrusted kitten heels. If you happen to be a shoe fiend with a lot of spare cash the most expensive shoes in the world are:
At the top of the list is (unsurprisingly) a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, available at Barneys.com. While considerably less flashy than many of the designer’s shoes, the alligator pumps will set you back $4,645.
Woven leather boots are hand-woven leather, something many fashionistas may have never considered when gearing up for cold weather. The peep-toed stiletto boots are $3,750.
Decidedly decadent and over-the-top, these Gianmarco Lorenzi satin heel sandals are made for a night out. At $3,348, you may want to wear them every night to get some return on your investment.
If you’re a shoe-loving bride, you’re going to want to make sure that these crystal-strapped Tabitha Simmons chandelier sandals peek out from beneath your gown at $2,190.
These Balmain suede & patent embossed boots have a cowboy-goes-to-the-disco feel. If that’s your sort of thing, they can be yours for $2,725.
Because one pair of red soles is never enough, these flame-themed sandals bring Christian Louboutin bling with them wherever you go. The Christian Louboutin Maralena heels are available for $2,445.
The Gucci ‘Sofia’ crystal embellished platform pump is beginning to look downright affordable at $2,295.
Rick Owens thigh high wedges are warm and walkable for winter, with a nearly sensible wedge heel. With a price tag of $2,073.60, it’s a good that the boot shaft that is so high it can double as pants.
Strut your stuff with peacock-inspire feathered footwear by Jimmy Choo. Jimmy Choo Marlene feather and suede sandals go for $1,995.
Basic black booties are amped up with the copious use of satin and crystals in this Giuseppe Zanotti version, available for $1,835.
