The Diamond Empire Brogues are lavishly fitted with 68 sparkling diamonds plus hallmarked solid 18 carat gold fittings. However, due to the fact Christopher has armoured the soles with phosphor bronze rods set deeply into the sole, there is the real possibility if rotated with other footwear they could last a life time. However, in the event of cosmetic damage or wear, all the gold fittings and diamonds can be easily transferred to a pair of brand new brogues; this can be easily done globally by post for £600.
