Nick Cannon’s marriage to Mariah Carey may be falling apart, but that doesn’t mean he can’t remain stylish!
The television host impressed with his unique (and extremely expensive) footwear during the finale of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Cannon wore a pair of diamond encrusted Tom Ford shoes, which have been valued at $2 million and are currently being reviewed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Valuable Pair of Shoes in the world.
Now, if that hasn’t already blown your mind, according to Women’s Wear Daily, the diamond shoes have more than 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold with a total carat weight of 340 carats, which doesn’t exactly make these shoes lightweight.
The shoes were created by Jason Arasheben, founder of the jewelry business Jason of Beverly Hills. And after almost a year and more than 2,000 hours of work, Arasheben was proud of his handiwork.
“I”m expecting a ‘wow’ factor for tonight,” Arasheben told WWD. “Not very often do I get a request for the most expensive shoes in the world. 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.”
However, Cannon was not just the best-dressed person on TV, ever. He also has big plans for these shoes and is intending to donate them to charity.
Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, he said he was looking for a charity to donate his sparklers to.

NBC was also kind enough to share a picture of his blinging footwear via Instagram.
