This Is What The World's Most Expensive Pair Of Shoes Look Like
These sneakers will set you back $4,000,000, but at least the proceeds will go to charity.
How much is too much for a great pair of shoes? I'd say a cool million pretty much caps it, but the most expensive sneakers in the world will set you back four times that amount.
With a price tag like that, these shoes have to be made of like, literal diamonds, right? The crazy thing is, they are. Slam Online reports that luxury lifestyle brand Bicion teamed up with sneaker designer Dan Gamache of Mache Custom Kicks to create "The Fire Monkey," the most pimped-out pair of sneaks you'll ever lay your eyes on.
The design is inspired by Dwayne Wade's Way of Wade shoe collection, but it's the customizations that make it one-of-a-kind. Bicion's engineers constructed the shoe using hundreds of white diamonds and blue sapphires, and set the stones in gold. Even the tag is gold... the tag!
While it may sound like an over-the-top display of wealth, it's all for a good cause. Proceeds from the sale of the shoes will be donated to Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization fighting poverty through the distribution of shoes and clothing.
