A Pair of Platinum Shoes

Shoes can excite and shoes can scare people. I do hope that this particular pair of shoes come with a guarantee. That might seem a bit ridiculous and official when we are talking about an item which you put onto you foot and walk around with it. However, hear me out, a pair of shoes that costs $107,700 (approximately R1,077,000) should most definitely come with a gurantee.BORGEZIE PLATINUM SHOES

There is not anything wrong with my keyboard or perception, a 7 digit number for any asset is not to be bought on a whim no matter how much money you have. What particular pair of shoes cost this small fortune? A pair of Borgezie Platinum Shoes.

“Like the entire Borgezie range, nothing like this has been achieved or indeed possible before… Due to the extremely high temperatures required to work with platinum, it proved to be one of my greatest challenges… The Platinum stiletto took over four years of development… The end result is a creation of empowerment and liberation and something that suspends all women onto a perfect statuesque plinth.”

The piece is already created, I will be interested to see who will be strutting their statuesque frame in these… Christopher Shellis, the brand’s designer, had worked on the project of Borgezie Platinum Cleopatra for years. A single pair of the shoes requires around 100 years and very high temperatures.

To answer my question about a gurantee, the shoes come along with a 1,000 year guarantee which makes me feel, ever so slightly better about the price – did I mention that it’s made of platinum? A solid piece of platinum! How many guys, do you think will let you walk on the ground of mortals in these “glass shoes”? So the only choice he will be left with is to carry you around, gently and deep with love.

Dare I mention, the fact that so much time and effort that has gone into producing this pair of footwear that there are people starving all around the world? It seems to me that it is a statement item, a work of art if you will, but I would only really approve if they decided to donate some of the proceeds towards a charitable organisation, because we are talking big money and lots of time and big money and lots of time can actually save lives rather than adorn the feet of some lady in vain. Anyway, I simply believe this appears to have been overlooked.

I do on the other hand love them for the art that they indeed are, however even if I quit shopping for the rest of my life and saved I still would not be able to afford them and to be honest, even if I could afford them, I’d rather buy a house something.
