As if the last pair didn't sell for enough $$$!

A pair of green striped silk slippers that belonged to Marie Antoinette sold at a Parisian auction on Wednesday for more than $81,000, five times the expected amount.

DAYUM.

The guillotined queen gifted the slippers to her manservant, Alexandre-Bernard Ju-Des-Retz, in 1775 and were passed down to his descendants.

And unlike the last auction, these shoes were CONFIRMED to have been worn by Marie Antoinette, as the winning bidder was given a certificate of authenticity.

Now that's what you call a good buy!!
