The shoes are being displayed under tight security
A pair of ruby-encrusted sandals with a price tag of £1m have gone on sale at Harrods.
Stored in a bullet-proof case and under round-the-clock guard, the size three-and-a-half shoes went on sale on Monday at the store in Knightsbridge, central London.
With 642 round and oval rubies totalling more than 120 carats, the four-and-a-half inch stilettos are unlikely to be an impulse buy.
Designed by Stuart Weitzman they are said to be inspired by the ruby slippers worn by Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
Shoe fanatics with £1m to spare should visit the Kurt Geiger ladies shoe department on the first floor.
Less wealthy shoppers might want to consider the limited edition Swarovski crystal replicas, also on sale at £250.
Children's charities including Francis House Children's Hospice in Manchester, Zoe's Place in Liverpool and the New School at West Heath in Kent, will receive £100,000 from the sale.
A Harrods spokesman said: ""Every girl grew up knowing the magic of the ruby slippers and Stuart Weitzman has created the fairy tale shoe."
