Diamonds are a…guy’s best friend?
That statement rings true for Nick Cannon, who wore $2 million Tom Ford shoes on the first part of the America’s Got Talent finale Tuesday night.
It appears the host indulged in some expensive retail therapy during his and Mariah Carey’s marriage woes, as he flaunted the diamond-encrusted kicks on the NBC series last night.
The $2 million shoes feature 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold. Total carat weight? 340. On his feet. We’re not kidding. Pick your jaw up. This is a real story.
But it wasn’t an on the whim purchase for the 33-year-old father-of-two. Women’s Wear Daily reports it’s been a year in the making.
Nick commissioned Jason of Beverly Hills to customize the Ford beauties.
Jason explains, “When Nick approached me last year, he said he wanted to make history and be so over-the-top. He wanted to set a new standard in diamonds. ‘How can we make the most expensive pair of shoes in the world and make this finale special?’ he asked me.”
Well, Mariah’s estranged man certainly got his wish. His kicks are officially under review as candidates for the title of Most Valuable Pair of Shoes in the world in the Guinness Book of World Records.
At least he’s thinking about donating them to charity…
