I'm in shoe heaven right now!!! This piece of art is $27, 945 and the reason for that is the 18 karat gold heel, hand-dyed silk petals and a gold, onyx and agate bee. This takes shoe fetish onto a whole new level, I think. To explain the concept behind the creations the designer told Vogue UK: ""A shoe, more than any other clothing item, is an object that already exists before even being worn; shoes do not generally fold up or fall lifeless as most clothing items do when not worn. This 'object' quality has a certain mystery to it, akin to a sculpture with a life of its own. A high luxury shoe should look as stunning on the foot as it would in a vitrine"
