We bling out pretty much everything these days. From ruby-encrusted wristwatches to diamond-studded laptops, if there’s a surface to be made shinier (and a cash flow as rapid as Niagara Falls to be squandered) then you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll decorate our tat with enough glittery bits to make Tutankhamen blush.
We thought we’d seen everything until we saw the Indulgences No. 5 from designer Kenneth Courtney.
But, GOLD! You’ve got the power to know you’ll never be able to afford these trainers.
A limited run of five pairs, Courtney’s trainer series sees a pair of Nike Dunk High sneakers dipped in 24K gold. They’ll cost you $4,000 (£2,472). And probably the use of your ankles, too.
If you’ve more money than sense, grab them here.
