So... pearls embellishing items in a fashion similar to studding is 'in' huh? By the looks of Balmain's latest and now these, it looks like there is a new trend on foot (excuse the pun). The only catch is if this particular 'trend' takes your fancy, you will surely be out of pocket some significant cash. Start thinking in terms of, if you fall within the relatively 'normal/average' lifestyle bracket, your entire rent or mortgage payments for maybe.... a few months! These heels are reportedly worth (as in they retail for) around the $5,800 mark!
The heels are part of Kayne's DONDA line and are decked out in elaborate ivory beading and embroidered pearls over calf skin.

For anyone that has the financial means and uncontrollable desire to own them, they are available through French retailer Colette for €4,420 or $5,800 US. I pass no judgement on your spending ability I swear....
