Brace Yourselves: Harrods Is Selling Shoes Made Of Real-Deal Gold

Red soles are great. Those little linking Cs, we love. And, don't even get us started on golden spider webs. But, how about adding a chunk of actual gold to your stilettos? A pair of shoes by Alberto Moretti is offering exactly that — accompanied by a giant £1,700 price tag. Blurring the lines between fine jewellery and accessories sounds like a great idea, but, would you really buy these?
Alberto Moretti's latest creation for the Monaco Grand Prix are made in velvet and covered in gold. (And, we mean real gold, you know, of the 24-carat variety.) And, for all the boys out there who are wondering how they can get in on the act, don't fret, because there is a loafer style just for you. Stocked in only five stores worldwide, lucky Londoners can get their pair of golden slippers at Harrods. The only other exclusive stockists are Barneys in NYC, Fred Segal in L.A., The Swank in Hong Kong, and Level Shoe District in Dubai.
