The idea of ultra luxury in fashion is nothing new but spending $10,000 on a pair of alligator leather wingtips is in its own realm of frivolity. These are the most expensive Louis Vuitton men's shoes ever made.
The wingtip is called the Manhattan Richelieu and is handmade using Blake construction (to make the leather as supple as possible). This pair of Louis Vuitton men's shoes has a hand-painted leather sole and a ruthenium-finish LV cube embedded in the leather heel. With all that care and attention, not to mention the price tag, it seems these would be better suited behind glass than on the street.
