Princely boots took a pounding

Custom high-heeled boots worn by pop star Prince on his 1987 European Sign o’ the Times tour sold for $75147 (just over R1million) at an auction by Boston-based RR Auction.

RR Auction acquired the boots from a former employee at Prince’s luxurious private estate, Paisley Park.

The auction house suggests Prince wore the shoes sporadically between 1986 and 1992, favouring them during his 34-date tour of Europe in 1987. As a result, the boots “exhibit wear consistent with Prince’s exuberant stage performances”.
