Our splurge on those Gucci mules isn't such a big deal once you learn the price of the world’s most expensive shoes.
The gold high heels considered the most expensive pair of shoes in the world are retailed at a whopping $17 million U.S. dollars. To put things into perspective, these heels cost more than Kris Jenner’s $12 million mansion that she recently bought near Coachella.
The jewel-encrusted shoes recently debuted at Dubai's Burj Al Arab Hotel, the only seven-star hotel in the world. Because, of course. India Today reports the shoes are “adorned with 15 flawless 100 carats of diamonds,” set in white gold.
There are reportedly 236 diamonds total. The heels are also made with silk and leather,. As for their shape, the heels are long and thin, while the front has a pointed toe design. They look similar to classic Louboutins.
The shoes are displayed inside a diamond-shaped case, and we wouldn't expect anything less.
The $17 million gold heels were created by Dubai brand Jada Dubai with Passion Jewellers. As India Today reports, the heels took nearly nine months to design. Additionally, the shoes will be sold by custom order only, and yes, the price will remain the same for each prospective buyer.
"Jada Dubai designs only shoes with diamonds. For the launch of our second collection, we wanted to create a piece that is truly unique in the world using very rare diamonds."
