They have been created by bespoke jewellers the House of Borgezie, and the world's first designs have already created a stir among celebrities.
Made by British jewellery designer Christopher Michael Shellis, each pair is handcrafted from solid gold and then encrusted with 2,200 brilliant cut diamonds, totalling 30 carats.
Shellis has spent three years working on the creation, perfect for summer balls, society weddings and red carpet events. Not to mention broken ankles, necks and getting mugged for your Cinderallas.
The betting books are closed on Victoria Beckham getting the first pair.
So obscene..... Therefore, to VB or whoever is stupid and rich and dumb enough to buy them, I hope they break their ankles.
looks like The Eternal Podiatry to me.
Ooooh yes!! I'll buy a pair immediately. They'll go so well with my black slacks and blue Coles shirt. Maybe I should get two pairs....
Dear Lord, the mantra to the creator should be "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should".
Could do with a couple of summer balls .. been bloody freezing up this way.
(Blue Mountains .. and yup, if i had a brass monkey; it would've lost 'em)
Some fool has died after swimming in the Ganges, a river even more toxic than the Yarra:
"Millions of Hindus bathe in the Ganges every year to wash away their sins. But nearly a billion liters of untreated sewage are dumped there each day, along with cremated bodies and industrial chemicals."
What an idiot.
"A BRITISH student has died days after swimming in India's Ganges river on his first trip outside Europe. By the time an ambulance rushed him to the hospital in New Delhi, the 20-year-old was dead.
The day before he died, vegan Sam - an old boy of posh £27,000-a-year ($71,000) Bedales School - learned he was accepted to study film at the London College of Communication. His mom Louise, 49, said; "We're devastated. He had such a bright future."
Kath, if you can afford the shoes you don't need to walk anywhere. In fact I can see the litter ninja being carried by an impeccably dressed butler as she drops garbage into the matching gold bag.
Annie O, I looked at my feet and decided that diamond and gold granny boots would be more my style.
River, Where is your fashion sense?
Black slacks and blue shirt just scream out for sapphires and platinum.
Ro, it might have been creatively satisfying for the man but what a waste of time.
Poor Davo, Blue Mountains in winter! But when the temperature in Alice Springs is 9 degrees then the weather is a little iffy.
Robbert, I wouldn't breathe the air over the Ganges let alone put a foot in it. The young always think they're invincible that's why youth is wasted on them.
Indians themselves know not to put their faces in the Ganges. There's the risk too of actually getting a mouthful.
Little kids in India hollered "Monkey" at me, and real monkeys hurled twigs down at me (perhaps to disown me?) from a tree as I lounged on the steps of a ghat. An Indian bloke yelled "Hoy!" as he rushed up past me carrying a plate of food. I looked around to see who it was for -and blow me down! he presented it to a cow. That's India. The poms stopped their widows throwing themselves on hubby's funeral pyres but you never hear about things like that.
The young do not think they're invincible (or "bulletproof") at all. That's a lie put out by both government and media, and I'm not sure why. Maybe it's to blame the user instead of the technology which provides, for instance, cars of enormous power and movies showing it off.
wow - and what happens if you break a heel?
Therese, break a heel! I'm reminded of Madame Pompadour complaining to her shoemaker that her satin slippers were falling apart. He was aghast, "Madame, surely you weren't walking in them?"
