Or at least we hope so because these 14-karat gold limited-edition handwoven shoelaces are apparently the world’s first. And they cost $19,000. That’s nearly £12,000 at today’s exchange rate.
If you’re unsure whether to part with enough cash to buy ten Chanel 2.5’s – or 17,588 Cadbury’s Freddos – Mr Kennedy (the designer of said shoelaces who is no relation to the ex-president as far as we know) promises to lace them for you anywhere in the world.
Oh, and don’t worry if you can’t quite stretch to £12,000, the silver version will only set you back £3k.
We’ll have a pair of each.
Mr Kennedy’s precious metal shoelaces are available at MrKennedy.com.
They look okay, but why pay so much for something that looks just as thought someone has spray painted gold paint on them. Although I guess never having to lace you shoes and just get Mr Kennedy to do them for you whenever you want is a bonus lol!
