Seriously?! Nick Cannon wore the world's most expensive pair of shoes on the finale of America's Got Talent on Tuesday, Sept. 16. The Tom Ford slip-on kicks — which are seriously blinged out — have more than 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold, totaling 340 carats, Women's Wear Daily reports.
"$2 million shoes — a million each foot," the host said in an Instagram video showing off his fancy feet.
The shoes were created by jewelry designer Jason Arasheben, founder of Jason of Beverly Hills. "Not very often do I get a request for the most expensive shoes in the world," the jeweler told the site. "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." Arasheben added it took more than 2,000 hours of work and almost a year to complete the bedazzled shoes.
"It took four months alone to source all of the diamonds and create them the same size to make the shoe," he said.
Those blinged-out kicks are sturdier than they look, Arasheben said. "As long as he's not too overly aggressive in the shoes, everything should be all right," he explained. Cannon plans on donating the kicks for a good cause.
"The most expensive shoes In the world!! 2 million dollar custom @TomFord @JasonofBH Maybe I should donate them to charity. Any suggestions?" he tweeted during the finale.
