Aldo's Smeal Sandal, $125

There is nothing like wearing the real thing, but with things the way they are in the world, it's insane to think about spending $2,300 on a pair of shoes.

$2,300 can buy 300 long-lasting insecticidal mosquito nets, 500 packets of high energy biscuits specifically for malnourished children in emergency situations, 350 doses of the measles vaccine, 100 HIV/AIDs rapid diagnostic test kits suitable for children over 18 months old, 5 double-sided chalkboards, 10 chalkboard dusters, 500 white chalk sticks and 500 colored chalk sticks when donated to Unicef, just food for thought.

U r 24K!
