Buy shoes for 158.000 euros

This is the most expensive pair of shoes in the world - setting fashion lovers back a staggering £140,000.

The design is made entirely from solid gold and more than 2,000 diamonds. But buyers have been reluctant to step forward and take the title of the most well-heeled human in history.

And you thought Louboutins were expensive? Each pair of The House of Borgezie shoes  is handcrafted from solid gold and then encrusted with 2,200 brilliant cut diamonds, totalling 30 carats

Because despite being on sale for more than five months not a single pair have been snapped up.

They are the brainchild of British jewellery designer Christopher Michael Shellis, who has stuck the boot into Louboutins with his daringly pricey design.

He said: 'At the moment there have been a lot of enquiries and talks - but nothing concrete just yet.

'The shoes have created a real buzz, but there is still a long way to go. We've had discussions with certain people but I can't say who.'

To help shift the House of Borgezie created shoes, then how about the equally as luxury accessories to make the perfect match. Whether that be the extravagant £200,000 bag or the £25,000 compact mirror, this is a combination fit for the most glam divas in the world. So it's no wonder that names such as Cheryl Cole and Paris Hilton are being thrown about whenever the shoes are mentioned.

No surprise: Despite being on sale for more than five months not a single pair have been snapped up

And probably why it's such a tall order for most to hit the monstrous asking price.

Shellis has spent three years working on the creation, which is painstakingly put together by skilled goldsmiths in temperatures of more than 1000º C.

Each pair is handcrafted from solid gold and then encrusted with 2,200 brilliant cut diamonds, totalling 30 carats.

He added: 'The aim of this was to create a unique form of jewellery which you can wear on your feet.

'But like any great treasure it will remain as beautiful as the day it was created - and we even offer an 'eternity' guarantee lasting 1,000 years.' The shoes are part of a huge exhibition, taking place at the Artbox in the Mailbox, Birmingham, open to the general public from April 16 to May 2.

Kudos Fine Arts, who are hosting the exhibition, have also selected major works from other international artists such as world famous graffiti artist Temper, in what they are labeling the most exciting exhibition outside London.

Kudos director Steve Turner said: 'The breadth and body of works that will be on exhibition is exceptional. There will be paintings and sculptures to suit all tastes.

'There will be a selection of works from prized international artists such as Tony Evans, Len Gifford and the late Robert Lenkowiez, each leaders in their own field.'
