While it's nothing new to splurge on footwear, sneakers worth Rs. 27 lakh are sure to turn some heads.
Actor Rishi Kapoor recently saw a few expensive sneakers at a store in New York and was shocked to see the price tags on them.
"Starting from $5,000 (more than Rs. 3.4 lakh), the price of some shoes goes up to $40,000 (Rs. 27 lakh) at one of the biggest sneaker stores in New York," the actor Tweeted while sharing photos from his visit there.
"Biggest sneaker store I have seen with more than 12,000 styles and models in NY," he said.
Sneakers are a million dollar global industry and a growing scene of sneaker collectors, or sneakerheads, is driving prices of rare shoes up to surprising levels.
Whether or not they are encrusted with gold or silver, these shoes sure do go the extra mile when it comes to luxury footwear.
