Marie Antoinette’s 300-Year-Old Shoes Auctioned Off For $57,000


Someone who had $57,000 to spend on old shoes just bought a pair of silk mules that are believed to have been worn by Marie Antoinette at a French auction.

How can you even tell they belonged to her? The white shoes are adorned with tricolor ribbons from 1790 and are about a US size 6, the same size Marie Antoinette wore. So they must be hers!

Some people like to collect Louboutins, others Marie-Antoinettes. To each their own, we say.
