Get your credit cards ready (and maybe a defibrillator if high price tags put you into cardiac arrest) because I’ve created a list of the 25 most expensive shoes in the world and it has a lot of zeros.
Years of Sex and the City binge-watching has told me that people will go to extreme lengths to have the expensive shoes they want. Carrie Bradshaw was consistently broke, but damn if she didn’t have the newest pair of Manolo’s every single season, because what would she be like without her power heels? I hate shoe shopping. I really do. There’s something nice about it to some degree because you can justify spending a lot on shoes considering they go with every outfit. Like you can’t justify $200 on a shirt because you wear it once and then you can’t wear it again until you’ve done laundry (or if you don’t want to do laundry because you’re me and you’re lazy, about two weeks later when it seems acceptable again). However, $200 on shoes makes slightly more sense because they theoretically will go with every outfit. I digress, buying shoes is irritating for me because my size is always sold out and quite frankly I hate spending money. I’m fine with my completely destroyed combat boots.
A lot of other people are not like me, though. For some, a shoe collection is like buying groceries. American Psycho: The Musical (REVIVE IT) told us “you are what you wear” and I believe it because I don’t want Patrick Bateman to be mad at me. Shoes made of exquisite fabrics are a luxury and the market is filled with brands that manufacture only the classiest shoes of the highest quality. Only those with deep pockets/really high credit limits can even consider them most of the time. If we learned anything from the book/movie Holes it’s that shoes are so important to some that they’re worth stealing.
As the title suggests, we are looking for the most expensive shoes ever made. So, there’s only one possible criterion to rank each item: the price tag. The most expensive item would top our list. To come up with the most accurate list, we consulted a few sites such as ABC News Point, Listovative, My First Class Life, and Luxatic.
