At an astronomical price of $38,000 per pair, Italian luxury leather goods label A. Testoni is offering the world’s most expensive pair of men’s dress shoes. Testoni, founded in Bologna in 1929 by Amedeo Testoni, painstakingly handcrafts the Moro monk-strap model in the world’s finest exotic alligator skin using the techniques of Norvegese, or Norwegian construction, for durability and added water resistance.
Crafted using a piuma rapid propitiatory process which is patterned, these shoes are touted to be “as light as a feather” and protect your feet from hot, cold and humid weather conditions. Stiched with custom-made linen twine, the shoes are lined with glove-soft goatskin and adorned with a rich gold and diamond buckle.
The Testonis eclipse the $10,000 alligator wingtips offered by Louis Vuitton last season and are sure to appeal to gentlemen of means who insist on the very best the world has to offer, regardless of price.
