Amazing but Seriously Expensive Designer Shoes: Are They Worth It?
The following is a guest post from our friends at FabSugar.
Would you spend $3,495 dollars on a pair of shoes? Maybe if your net worth hovers north of a few million dollars, you would, but for the rest of us, something like the sculpted resin and leather Alexander McQueen shoes remain something to gawk at (and perhaps dream about). We searched for five pairs of outrageously fabulous yet wildly expensive shoes that are available right now online. These aren't the most expensive shoes ever — the jewel-encrusted, million-dollar-plus shoes we see on red carpets aren't usually sold online — but they're serious investments. Take a look and tell us: are they worth it?
These Alexander McQueen shoes ($3,495) are like something a white fairy would wear in our fashion dreams. Sculpted resin leafs make up the soles, which is why the price tag is so high.
These tricolor, suede, Swarovski crystal-covered heels from Giuseppe Zanotti ($1,495) have an '80s pop appeal.
These animal-print calf-hair Brian Atwood heels ($1,450) are embellished with real ostrich plumes and have a grosgrain ribbon lace-up front.
These silk pumps from Brian Atwood ($4,970) boast hundreds, maybe thousands, of tiny Swarovski crystals and are available for preorder.
These Fendi booties ($1,750) are covered in raccoon fur for a seriously glam après-ski look.
We want to know: If you could buy any of these shoes, which ones would you buy? Tell us why in the comments!
