Manolo Blahnik Unveils A USD5,700 Pair Of Crystal Boots

A work of art

Manolo Blahnik loves an extravagant shoe. Just ask Rihanna, whose collaboration for the brand has included $4,000 denim boot-pants and $2,300 jewel-encrusted gladiator sandals. Now, the designer has come out with his most outrageous offering yet: one-of-a-kind fuschia boots valued at a casual $5,700. They were created in partnership with crystal supplier Preciosa and debuted at its flagship store in Prague, Czech Republic earlier this week.
