Dubai-based shoemaker Jada Dubai has debuted what it says is the world’s most expensive pair of shoes – with a whopping US$17 million (Dh62.4 million) price tag.
Dubbed Passion Diamond Shoes, this pair of high heels are made from diamonds and real gold, and they feature hundreds of diamonds, together with two imposing D-flawless diamonds of 15 carats each.
Maria Maajri, co-founder and creative director of Jada Dubai, who designed the shoes, “Jada Dubai designs only shoes with diamonds.
For the launch of our second collection, we wanted to create a piece that is truly unique in the world using very rare diamonds.”
The one-of-a-kind shoes are a European size 36 (US 5.5, UK 3.5) and can be custom-made to the client’s size – after he or she pays full retail price, but a prototype has been created in Italy. They were launched at the world’s only 7-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab, on Wednesday.
During the event, Jada Dubai also launched three more limited edition creations, made with diamonds, rubies, gold and pearls. The new collection includes the Diamond Pearl sandals ($25,000), The Ruby Stilettos featuring rubies, gold and diamonds ($27,000) and The Diamond and Gold stilettos ($17,000).
Earlier, Debbie Wingham high heels were considered the most expensive footwear costing $15.1 million.
