Nick Cannon Wears $2 Million Loafers on America's Got Talent

The host pulls out major swag for season finale.

Published September 18, 2014

Looks like Nick Cannon learned a thing or two about the good life from his estranged wife Mariah Carey. The actor/comedian/host rocked a pair of $2 million Tom Ford loafers — the most expensive shoes in the world — on the season finale of America's Got Talent.

"$2 million shoes — a million each foot," the host said in an Instagram video showing off his fancy feet. The slip-ons have more than 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold, totaling 340 carats, Women's Wear Daily reports.

The pricey kicks were created by jewelry designer Jason Arasheben, founder of Jason of Beverly Hills. "Not very often do I get a request for the most expensive shoes in the world," the jeweler told the site. "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." Arasheben added it took more than 2,000 hours of work and almost a year to complete the bedazzled shoes.

"It took four months alone to source all of the diamonds and create them the same size to make the shoe," he said.

While Arasheben claims the shoes are sturdier than they look, these loafers weren't made for walking. Cannon says he plans to donate them to benefit charity.
