SheFinds News: The World's Most Expensive Shoes

Wouldn’t life be grand if we all had access to Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe collection? According to Sophia Banay at [url=http://www.forbes.com/lifestyle/2005/12/16/expensive-womens-shoes-cx_sb_1219feat_ls.html]Forbes.com[/url], Ms. Bradshaw is not the only lady who goes ga-ga for expensive footwear. Banay reports that women spent over $17 billion on fashion footwear between October 2004 and October 2005! What turns an ordinary shoe into such a status symbol? Rare leather (ostrich, snake, alligator), built-to-last craftsmanship, and a tag that reads Choo, Blahnik, or Louboutin. Manolo Blahnik boasts the most expensive with a $14,000 pair of [url=http://www.shoeblogs.com/wordpress/2005/12/21/the-14000-boots]alligator skin boots[/url]. Unfortunately these babies are only available at the [url=http://newyork.citysearch.com/profile/7143446/new_york_ny/manolo_blahnik.html]Manolo Blahnik store[/url] in Manhattan. Lord of Luggage, Louis Vuitton comes in second with a pair of Vienna Minimalisa high boots in ostrich leather. For $4,500, I don’t think there’s anything minimalisa about ’em. You can find more info at [url=http://www.louisvuitton.com]louisvuitton.com[/url]. My personal favorite, pictured above, is designed by [url=http://www.salvatoreferragamo.com]Salvatore Ferragamo[/url]. A pair of decadent crocodile Avila t-straps clocks in at $2,390.

If you’re looking for a less expensive, comparable option- we love Kate Spade’s silver snake print open-toe heels at a reasonable $298.95. Find them at couture.zappos.com.
