Those shoes cost how much?
Shoes can be as cheap as 20 bucks, or skyrocket to costing millions of dollars. We are all about a reasonably priced sneaker, but more often than not, we know we’ll be spending at least 100 dollars on a new and exclusive shoe.
So you might be wondering, what causes shoes to cost hundreds, thousands or even millions of dollars? Sometimes it’s the person who wore them, the event they were worn at, their athletic history, the material they are made of or even the fine details added to the shoe.
We are taking a look at some of the most expensive shoes in history, and why they cost such a pretty penny.
We love Chewbacca. He is one of the fan favorites from the Star Wars series. We also love Cousin It from The Addams Family. So, if these Gucci Fur Slippers remind you of those two characters, you’re not alone.
These slippers though, are sure to break your bank. They’ll cost you about $1,800 to look like you’re walking around with living creatures on your feet. Hopefully they keep you warm, and feeling like a warm bug all snug.
Some shoes are meant to be worn, and some are meant to be a centerpiece. Take a look at these gold dipped Nike Dunks worth $6,000. They are covered in 24 karat gold that you won’t want to get dirty.
This sneaker collaboration has to be one of the most hype things to happen in streetwear. Although the partnership did turn out some exceptionally fresh pieces, the comfort level is less than impressive.

Before Nike, Kobe always wore Adidas. The KB-8, later renamed the Crazy 8, became the first signature shoe of the Black Mamba. Fans can cop a signed, game worn pair on eBay for $7,999. The shoe smells of success. Not sweat.
Pharrell Williams is one of the most talented men in the music industry. He is also a pro when it comes to generating hype.
The very stylish rapper has been involved in a number of collaborations including the HU NMD. It combines the comfort with style. The ‘friends and family’ releases are the ones commanding quite a bit of dough.
If you can snag a pair of the maroon shoes, they can cost you between 10k to 12k.
This shoe may make you want to sell your kidney.

It was so exclusive that the appeal of this shoe is now one of the most sought-after sneakers out there.
These shoes make be hailed as one of the most expensive sneakers in the world, and quite possibly the most expensive Jordans in the world.
