On the occassion of Hong Kong Business Design Week, which opens on Dec. 2, fashion and creative minds come with innovative unique pieces of design to impress the audience.

For AF Vandevorst, known for boots and shoes designers, it was a good idea to reconvert a boot from autumn 2012 collection into a unique piece of art. Still with its practical side, though!

Walk in million euros diamond boots

"If you want to walk with millions on your foot, you can," said Filip Arickx, the label designer. He along with AF Vandervorst and Diarough/UNI-Design, an Antwerp-based diamond company came with the idea of creating a diamond boot for the event. 

The boots have 54,000 tiny colored diamonds in gray, yellow, cognac, brown colors and its worth is estimated at around a few million euros. 

"AF Vandevorst are known for boots and shoes, so we thought, ‘Why not present an exclusive pair of diamond boots?'" said Arickx. "Diamonds are very important to Belgium - 95 percent of the world's diamonds pass through Antwerp for cutting and certification." 

The boots will be sold on December 4 at the Hong Kong event.
