Got a few thousand bucks burning a hole in your pocket? No? Then read on and dream along with me. Here are some of the chicest, most extravagant boots out there, mostly tailored to attract the eye of the 1%.
I don’t know if I want to pet these Manolo Blahniks, or wear these Manolo Blahniks. These shearling and suede beauties are fully lined with 100% calf shearling.
The Alexis, $1885
Behold the dear alligator who gave his life in the name of fashion. We have Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson’s fashion brand, The Row, to thank for these works of art.
Alligator Ambra, $7500
Moving along to another reptile, the crocodile, we have a classic cowboy boot silhouette. A timeless style that never goes out of fashion, these could safely be considered a wise investment. Lucchese is a generations-old shoe and boot maker, originating in Italy in the 1860’s, and today producing out of El Paso, Texas.
The Sheridan, $3495
There are few of us in the world who would be able to pull these denim, belted thigh-highs off. Rihanna designed them in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik, which pretty much explains it all.
9 To 5, $4350
Finally, the piece de resistance, the world’s most expensive boots. Belgian designer A.F. Vandervorst created these using 1.550 carats of diamonds, 4.7 grams of gold, and a logo made out of a rare red-pink. These are only available in size 39 (8 US). The price? $3.1 million. That’s right.
