Nick Cannon Debuts $2 Million Diamond Loafers

It’s no secret that the lifestyles of the rich and famous aren’t always the most humble. Multiple homes. 10-carat engagement rings. Chrome-covered cars. But $2 million shoes? That’s where the line should be drawn. Not so for Nick Cannon, the host of America’s Got Talent, who is gaining a lot of attention for the diamond-encrusted loafers he sported on Tuesday night’s finale.

According to Justin Fenner, associate online style editor at details.com, the shoes are the work of Jacob of Beverly Hills. “Over 14,000 round white diamonds – roughly 340 carats – were set into white gold and then affixed to the shoes,” Justin says. “The entire process took nearly a year to complete.”

Let’s ignore the fact that there are plenty of more important things one can do with $2 million, like, say, feed a family of four for 133 years. Nick’s showstopping shoes are currently with the Guinness Book of World Records for consideration as the most expensive shoes in the world.

Wow. How about a nice pair of leather loafers instead? This pair by Cole Haan is timeless, can be dressed up or down, and won’t scream “Post-Divorce Midlife Crisis” while you’re walking down the street. Promise.

Return of the Pleats? DETAILS Magazine Thinks So

In my opinion, there are a few “classic” items that have seen better days. Take the pleated pant, for instance. Once a star of the men’s wardrobe (specifically suiting or khakis in the 80s), it’s a look that’s been on the back burner for years. Well, it appears DETAILS is eager to bring it back.

Are Pleats Back for Men?

In their video series “The New Classics,” the DETAILS editors attempt to debunk some style no-nos by introducing ways to incorporate different silhouettes into your closet. The first in the series is the pleated pant. I applaud the effort to offer advice on sporting new trends or classic styles, but I’m a little afraid of seeing masses of pleated khaki in the future. So, guys, I recommend proceeding cautiously with this look.
