Los Angeles: TV star Nick Cannon flaunted a pair of shoes worth USD 2 million at the finale of his show 'America's Got Talent'.

Cannon, 33, wore blingy Tom Ford shoes, said to be world's most expensive, having more than 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold, totalling 340 carats, reportedly.

"USD 2 million shoes, a million each foot," the host said in an Instagram video showing off his fancy feet.

The shoes were created by jewellery designer Jason Arasheben, founder of Jason of Beverly Hills. "Not very often do I get a request for the most expensive shoes in the world," the jeweller said.

"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. 'How can we make the most expensive pair of shoes in the world and make this finale special?' he asked me," Arasheben said.

He added it took more than 2,000 hours of work and almost a year to complete the bedazzled shoes. "It took four months alone to source all of the diamonds and create them the same size to make the shoe," he said.

Cannon plans on donating the shoes for a good cause. "The most expensive shoes In the world!! 2 million dollar custom Tom Ford JasonofBH. Maybe I should donate them to charity. Any suggestions?" he tweeted during the finale.
