We certainly understand the obsession with shoes, but we’re no Imelda Marcos (the former Philippine first lady owned 1,200 pairs). We’ve definitely shelled out big bucks on fancy heels, but we’re no Carrie Bradshaw(she once realized she’d spend $40,000 on shoes). We know the market is flooded with some ludicrous over-the-top fashion items these days from designer sweatpants to bedazzled bikinis, but would you ever spend $229,000 on a pair of shoes? Because they exist, and we think they’re totally nuts!

British jewelry designer Christopher Michale Shellis has essentially created stunning accessories for your feet. Made with solid gold and 30 carats of diamonds, they’re sure to infuse bling in your each and every step. "The aim of this was to create a unique form of jewelry which you can wear on your feet.” the designer told theUK Telegraph. “It's a bit like if you found these on an archaeological dig in thousands of years time they would be regarded as a treasure—a treasure of the feet.”

Treasure, indeed, but are they the most expensive shoes in the world, like the Telegraph claims? Nope not even close. We’ve searched high and low to find the priciest pairs around, and some value a whopping $3 million! Don’t believe it? Check out this slideshow where we’ve put the fanciest footwear on display.
