Quorra Couture Platform Sandal designed by Jerome C. Rousseau retailing for $795

​Yesterday, the Hollywood Reporter revealed that Disney was launching a high-end accessory and shoe line inspired by Tron: Legacy.

While every ultra-hyped Disney movie release goes hand-in-hand with an avalanche of merchandise, Tron's is pretty over the top.

The shoe and accessory line, for example, has Disney partnering with designers Jerome C. Rousseau, Hayden-Harnett, Robin Rotenier and TomTom. Their products will be on sale at the "Tron" Pop-Up Shop opening next month in LA before Tron: Legacy's Dec. 17 release date.

The clincher? Canadian-born designer Rousseau designed a pair of five-inch metallic platforms inspired by the female lead, Quorra. The price tag? $795.

And that's not the most expensive item on the list, which include cuff links, PS3 controllers, motorcycle outfits, sunglasses and board shorts. Who would buy any of this?

After the jump, check out our list of the most ridiculously priced Tron merchandise.

They should call this the BurTRON snowboot--"made to look like something out of the future, yet seen through the eyes of a snowboarder back in 1982 when the first film came out."
