The Most Expensive Football Cleats
How much would you pay for a pair of soccer cleats? How much would you pay for a pair that was worn by John Terry, captain of the Chelsea Football Club and England’s national football team? Of course, Americans know this game better as soccer but still, these shoes are extremely valuable no matter what name you want to give the game!
The world’s most expensive pair of cleats did in fact come from John Terry but the state that the shoes are in, and the fact that they are almost completely covered in jewels, we’re guessing that Terry never actually worn these during a game. The shoes were made by Umbro but this brand name manufacturer is only one reason why the shoes are so expensive. These cleats include a total of 2,374 jewels. Among those, there are 27 carats of white diamonds, 10 carats of sapphires, and on the tips of the cleat’s studs are 84 black diamonds set in white gold. Also, the tongues and the toes of these cleats are encrusted with white gold shields that feature not only the names of John Terry’s children, Summer and Georgie, and the cross of St. George.
This pair of cleats is up for auction in London for a total of $220,000.
