The world’s most expensive pair of shoes is on sale for $17 million (N6.1 billion)
The manufacturer, a Dubai based shoemaker named Jada Dubai unveiled a prototype to a group of 50 prospective buyers at Dubai’s Burj Al Arab hotel.
Only one pair of the shoes will be made once it is purchased. The shoes will be made specifically to fit the wearer’s feet.
The shoes are a collaboration between UAE designer Jada Dubai and jeweller, Passion Jewellers.
Hemant Karamchandani, the chief executive of passion Jewelers said: “Dubai is the city of millionaires and billionaires… we see it as a potential market, along with the entire (Gulf) region.
“The shoe took about 9 months to create, according to the maker of the shoe. There will be only one pair of “The Passion Diamond Shoes” in the world.
“We had to prototype many shoes in Italy in order to find the perfect shape, perfect heel, the perfect colour for it.
“Even inside, the logos of both companies are made out of gold, which is very thin, so it will be very comfortable for walking”.
