The world’s most expensive shoes have gone on sale today in Dubai for a whooping $17 million.
The lavish heels are made from gold patent leather, silk, and embellished with 236 diamonds, as well as featuring a round 15 carat flawless D-diamond center piece at the tip of each shoe.
The ‘Passion Diamond’ shoes are the second set of showstoppers from UAE-based designer Jada Dubai, who hit headlines earlier in the year for its royal collection, also in collaboration with jewelry brand Passion Jewellers, which included a pair for $286,000.
The one of a kind shoes will be made bespoke to fit the buyer, but a prototype has been created in Italy that will be viewed by just 50 VIP clients at what’s billed as the world’s only seven-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
The select group has been invited to the showcase to get a closer view of the shoes, which took nine months to create and even feature real gold labels on the inside.
The stilettos, created with Passion Jewellers, will top the $15 million fetched for a pair of high heels by UK designer Debbie Wingham — which eventually sold to a Middle- Eastern client who bought them for their daughter.
Speaking about the extravagant design, Hemant Karamchandani, chief executive of Passion Jewellers, which supplied the diamonds for the shoes, said:
‘Dubai is the city of millionaires and billionaires, we see it as a potential market, along with the entire (Gulf) region.
Maria Majari, co- founder of Jada Dubai which designed the shoes, added:
‘We wanted to create a truly unique piece.
