Provided none of us is Cinderella, the choice in shoes shouldn’t be that difficult, except, of course, if we’re shopping for a truly amazing pair of shoes. As chance would have it, we are about to go through the world’s most expensive pairs of shoes in search for the ten most expensive shoes ever made.

10Stuart Weitzman’s Diamond Dream Stilettos – $500,000
This exquisite pair of shoes was created by Stuart Weitzman for Anika Noni Rose to wear at the 2007 Academy Awards Ceremony.

They also have a fine silver band across the toes that is supposed to give the shoes a more shining exuberance.
