Tacky, right? Well, tacky in this day and age will run you a cool £140,000 (approx. $228,452 US) because this strappy sandal is encrusted with 30 carats in diamonds, made of solid gold.

According to the designer, Christopher Michale Shellis, “The aim of this was to create a unique form of jewellery which you can wear on your feet. It’s a bit like if you found these on an archaeological dig in thousands of years time they would be regarded as a treasure—a treasure of the feet.”

Although I appreciate that Shellis has already made the jokes for me, I have to ask: does anyone actually think this is a great shoe?
