Nick Cannon has purchased a pair of shoes for a staggering $2.2m.
The American Got Talent host, posed with a thumbs up as he showed off his $2.2m Tom Ford slip ons. The shoes are made of 14,000 full cut round white diamonds set onto white gold, with a total carat weight of 340 carats.
Jason Arasheben, who is a top Beverly Hills jeweler, told Women 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.
‘He wanted to set a new standard in diamonds. ‘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.’
Seriously, $2.2m for a pair of shoes, are you kidding me!! He had better be able to fly to Mars in those.
In other news, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are yet to finalize their divorce, which should leave Nick with a huge chunk of Mariah’s $510m.
