World's most expensive shoes go on display. A pair of sandals, which have gone on display at a Tokyo department store, are believed to be the most valuable shoes in the world.
Based on the pair of ruby slippers worn by Dorothy in Wizard of Oz, they are worth about £920,000. The sandals are studded with 690 rubies and were made for an actress to wear at the Oscars.
But the sandals were never worn as Oscar stars decided to dress-down for the ceremony because of the Iraq war. They are worth 50% more than the previous record holders which were also designed by Stuart Weitzman.
That pair were woven from platinum thread with 464 diamonds set in pure platinum and were worn at last year's Oscar's ceremony by Mulholland Drive actress Laura Harring.
