American rapper/ TV host, Nick Cannon, rocked the world’s most expensive shoes to host America’s Got Talent grand finale yesterday in New York. The Tom Ford pair of shoes is diamond encrusted and cost $2.2million(which is about N350million). The pair of shoes have 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold, with a total carat weight of 340 carats. Jason Arasheben is the jeweler who created the shoes, he told Women’s Wear Daily;
‘Not very often do I get a request for the most expensive shoes in the world. When Nick approached me last year, he said he wanted to make history and be so over the top.”
“‘How can we make the most expensive pair of shoes in the world and make this finale special?’ he asked me. We didn’t want him looking like Frankenstein when he walked, we still needed to consider functionality.
‘He’s not going to win a race or play basketball with these. It’s still a piece of jewelry. As long as he’s not too overly aggressive in the shoes, everything should be all right.’
