Britney Spears spent $6,000 (£4,900) on Christian Louboutin snakeskin shoes that she’s never worn.
The 37-year-old performer shared a snap of the sky-high heels on Instagram on Thursday and told her followers that while she’s had them for a while, she’s never got round to wearing them.
“Four years ago I bought my first pair of Christian Louboutin snakeskin heels that were 6,000 dollars… PS I’ve never worn them !!!!” she wrote, alongside two rolling eyes emojis.
Her followers urged her to auction them off for charity and expressed concern that she was spending huge amounts of money on frivolous things.
“Britney, I don (don’t) think u should be posting how much u pay for things (sic),” one wrote. “Yes u can afford it and that’s great but it might be a little insensitive to those that struggle each day.”
“If you wanted you could have fed the unprivileged with that money,” another commented, while one follower suggested: “Auction them off and donate the money to a non profit woman’s cause. They are beautiful and shouldn’t be kept in a box.”
The multi-coloured snakeskin pumps feature a platform base and were part of Louboutin’s fall 2019 collection titled Palace Nights, which was a homage to a Parisian nightclub in the 1980s nicknamed the Palace.
News of Britney’s splurge comes after it was revealed she’s worth more than $59 million (£49 million).
According to documents obtained by The Blast, she has increased her net worth by $2.5 million (£2 million), thanks to her Piece Of Me tour last year.
