When you're Beyonce you don't spend your afternoon arguing with the Rite-Aid clerk over how many packs of Quilted Northern toilet paper your coupon entitles you to (that's what you do when you are me). When you are the Queen B, you buy yourself $345,000 shoes encrusted with diamonds, because it's a Tuesday and you're bored with your Jimmy Choos.
According to Footwear News, Mrs. Carter got a pair of ultra luxe stiletto heels from House of Borgezie, a designer famous for creating high-end heels. House of Borgezie designer Christopher Shellis said Beyonce bought a pair he created especially for her. So why do the heels cost so much?
"These took over two months to make, with more than 1,300 diamonds set into solid 18K gold," he told Footwear News. Shellis and House of Borgezie have produced similar shoes, including this pair which if you stare at long enough will probably make you hire yourself out as a professional assassin just so you can make enough bank to pay for them.
Those are the Princess Constellation heels and they cost about $337,000, in case you've got a few Christmas checks from Grandma laying around you can cash in to pay for them. The shoes Bey got are a different design and are probably going to be named something new. (Is hoping for "The Yonce" too much to ask?) Also, the diamonds in the shoe are actually built into the construction of the stiletto . This shoe is not screwing around, OK?
"All I can say at the moment is there is a more than very good chance that they are going to be in the next Beyonce video," Shellis said when pressed for more info about Bey's special new shoes.
Now is the perfect time to totally freak out about how awesome her next video is going to be. $345,000 shoes? How can she possibly top that? Never mind, come to think of it, she's Beyonce -she'll figure out a way.
