For those obsessed with all gold everything like rapper Trinidad James you can now buy 24-carat gold Nike sneakers, or even a pair of $19,000 gold shoelaces.
In the same rich vein nowAlberto Moretti has made the first wearable pair of 24-carat gold shoes. Ladies can have a pair of heels, and there are loafers for men.
The midas shoes are covered in velvet and drenched in 24-karat gold. The golden shoes were created in collaboration with HORO , a brand that made gold leaf T-shirts. The footwear will be available for purchase exclusively at five places around the world: Barneys in New York, Fred Segal in L.A., the Swank in Hong Kong, Level Shoe District in Dubai, and Harrods in London. The cost is only $2,650 (or 2,000 euros) per pair. Wealthy celebrities clamber to wear Moretti footwear, including: Lady Gaga, Cameron Diaz, Jessica Chastain, and Ryan Gosling.
