    Here They Are, The Most Expensive Shoes In The World

    Seventeen. Million. Dollars.

    Listen. I know when it comes to footwear, a lot of people are like:

    But for me, I usually just buy whatever's cheapest on Amazon or at the greatest store on Earth, Payless.

    So you can imagine my horror when I found out that this pair of shoes right here is selling for $17 million dollars.

    Yep, $17 mil for these gold pumps with more than 100 carats of flawless diamonds, set in a white gold trim.

    Also, please direct your attention to the big ol' diamonds on the toes of the shoes, which are 15 carats EACH, according to Reuters.

    The shoes are being called the "most expensive in the world," and, tbh, I'm not even going to fact-check that because if there are shoes that cost more than $17 million I'm going to actually die.

    People on Twitter have been quick to point out a disturbing trend in this type of shock fashion:

    CNN Style reporting on these $17 million dollar shoes. Which is GREAT! Now I finally have something to wear with my $10 million dollar bra. https://t.co/45JIBBRvQG

    While others are imagining what else you could do with that money:

    There's a pair of shoes for $17 million dollars. Do you know how many peanut butter cups I could buy with that?

    And then, of course, you can get real about it:

    There’s starving poor people living on a dollar a day while others can afford to buy 17 million dollar shoes. https://t.co/Wao4ZQFt9f

    Anyway, the shoes are being housed at the Burj Arab Hotel in Dubai, which is referred to as the world's only 7-star hotel. So if you want to spend about $1,350 a night on a room there, you can ~maybe~ see these shoes in person.
