Nick Cannon Wears $2 Million Tom Ford Shoes on 'America's Got Talent' Finale

Talk about fancy footwear.
America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon wore custom Tom Ford shoes valued at two million dollars during Tuesday's finale of the NBC show, which are currently being reviewed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the "Most Valuable Pair of Shoes in the World."
But what makes the shoes so expensive?
Aside from the fact that they're Tom Fords, they're also an all-diamond pair, which according to Women's Wear Daily, has more than 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold, with a total carat weight of 340 carats. They were created by Jason Arasheben, founder of the jewelry business Jason of Beverly Hills.
Arasheben told WWD that the shoes took more than 2,000 hours of work, and close to a year to complete.
Cannon, 33, showed off the pricey pair of shoes in this Instagram video for WWD, explaining, "Two million dollar shoes, a million each foot."
"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," Arasheben said. "'How can we make the most expensive pair of shoes in the world and make this finale special?' he asked me."
