Want to feel like Scheherazade tales from the Arabian Nights? That’s what you can, with luxury and also the world’s most expensive ballet flats in the world – Josefinas Persian Blue Salt. Josefinas is Portugal’s shoe brand, which is under the direction of designer Filipa Júlio. She wanted to create elegant casual footwear to pay a tribute to her past as a ballerina while honoring the future of modern Portuguese women. Filipa’s opinion is that handmade shoe has the uniqueness and mystically that only a gemstone can reproduce. After a year researching materials, testing and trying out different options, she created a ballerina flat adorned with a beautiful piece of fine jewelry handmade from Gold and Blue Topazes that reflects the union of these two concepts.
