The handmade stiletto shoes are made from leather with a 24K gold coating, stitched together with 18K gold thread.
The pink and blue diamonds’s on the stilettos are extremely rare and large, costing about $11 million alone. To add to the value and extravagance of the shoes, four flawless three carat white diamonds and 1,000 pointer diamonds are used to emphasized the cake-like design of the shoes. The zips and plaques underneath the shoes are solid gold.
