World’s Most Expensive Shoes Unveiled in the UAE (It Costs More than Your House)

The UAE and Dubai, in particular, is home to some crazy world records. With the fashion scene thriving in the city, it’s no surprise that many of these records have something to do with expensive clothes and luxury items. Make no mistake; the Emiratis are certainly not looking for ways to save money on clothes and shoes

Just this Friday, shoes worth $19.9 million were displayed at the Dubai Marina. Crafted by the Italian designer, Antonio Vietri, ‘The Moon Star Shoes’ were featured on MIDE (Made in Italy, Designed in Emirates) Fashion Week. 

Vietri is known as the first inventor of 24-carat gold shoes. He champions himself as an entrepreneur who remains in touch with his artistic side. According to him, his company stands today thanks to timeless techniques passed down through generations. 

Now, for those who find it strange that a pair of shoes would cost so much, there is a simple explanation. These shoes are designed with solid gold and have heels that hold 30 carats of diamond. Oh! And these shoes also have a small piece of a meteorite that was discovered in Argentina in 1576.

Campo del Cielo is a meteorite that fell some 4200 -4700 years ago and was discovered later in the 16th century by the Spanish army. It has a sleek but solid heel that replicates the illustrious shape of the Burj Khalifa building. 

It’s somewhat similar to the designs by the British fashion entrepreneur Tamara Mellon. However, readers can use the Tamara Mellon discount codes and free shipping vouchers to get her items for much more affordable prices. 

Anyways, the display of expensive shoes in Dubai is not new, as a pair worth Dh62 was unveiled just last year, The Moon Star shoes have shattered all earlier Guinness World Records including the most expensive shoes which were previously $15.5 million. 

Readers that can’t afford such luxurious items can always use FSJ Shoes discount codes code to get stylish shoes that do not cost a fortune. 

In any case, the UAE continues to be a place where expensive items are advertised. Way back in 2010, Emirates Palace hotel, a luxury hotel in the city of Abu Dhabi unveiled the world’s most expensive Christmas tree which was valued more than $11 million. The 13-meter sat in the hotel’s lobby was a special attraction in December of that year. 

With fashion events scheduled all year in the UAE, it will be interesting to observe what new records will be made in the near future.
