These are the most expensive shoes in the world at R240 million

Move over Jimmy Choos, Manaholo Blaniks and Christian Loubotins, these shoes are the ultimate expensive accessory.

A Dubai-based shoemaker has launched what according to them is the world’s most expensive pair of shoes. Made of gold, silk and hundreds of diamonds, they cost $17 million (R240 million).

According to The Mirror, the shoes were created by Jada Dubai, and the silk and gold patent leather are embellished with 236 diamonds provided by Passion Jewellers.

Plus, they each feature a 15 carat flawless D diamond on the tip of each shoe and are called the Passion Diamond shoes.

Gold, silk and hundreds of diamonds: a Dubai-based shoemaker has debuted what it says is the world’s most expensive pair of shoes – with a whopping $17 million price tag. At a time when some major fashion houses around the world are struggling to sell their high-end clothes, Jada Dubai, a design house with a modest social media following, on Wednesday unveiled a pair of gold patent leather stilettos trimmed with a row of sparkling diamonds. Each shoe features a crowning jewel: a round, 15 carat flawless D-diamond near the pointed toe. “Dubai is the city of millionaires and billionaires… we see it as a potential market, along with the entire (Gulf) region,” said Hemant Karamchandani, chief executive of Passion Jewellers, which supplied the jewels. 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. Dubai, a hub for Gulf fashion and home to the biannual Arab Fashion Week, has seen a growing number of tourists over the last few years, with more than 16 million people visiting the emirate last year. #elixirng #gold #diamond #dubai #shoemaker #jadadubai
