Humans as we are, we have our own collections – something that we really love to have. There are a lot of things that you can collect, from simple stones to expensive cars, and whatever these collections are, I am sure that you treasure them the most. Some people have this fascination of collecting shoes since it has been said that beautiful shoes take you to wonderful places. If you believe in this, then you must be someone who invests more on shoes rather than clothes and other accessories. Most often, those who have a large shoe collection are celebrities and A-listers because they use these on their everyday lives and work. Philippines’ former first lady Imelda Marcos, the wife of President Ferdinand Marcos, has more than 3000+ pairs of shoes! And Imelda is a lady of substance and style, so I bet that her shoes are as expensive as her tastes. Her shoes may worth millions accumulatively, but I doubt if she has one pair that is as expensive as these shoes on our list. So, let’s get started with 20 most expensive shoes in the world, which I personally feel that only multi-millionaires can afford. It is certainly far from common people like you and me.
