The world has been graced with its most expensive shoe. Cinderella, where are you?
Jada Dubai is the United Arab Emirates-based design company behind the new shoe.
Maria Majari, co-founder and creative director of the brand, said,
“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.”
It was also stated that,
“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 color for it.”
The shoes feature two flawless D diamonds and 236 smaller diamonds. In addition to the diamonds, the shoes are made entirely of gold, leather and silk.
They are valued at 1.23 billion rupees, or $17 million USD.
Many people find the footwear absurd.
Those shoes better be able to read my mind, turn into sneakers by voice command, fix my cocktail, connect to my car by blue tooth, automatically know my favorite meal and order it, turn in to a plane and take me on trips then tuck me in at night.

These shoes better come with 12 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, golf course and a farm in them.

You could get the same shoes in a Vegas pawn shop for $25, and they’d throw in $0.50 off a boa with it.

People also think that for such an expensive shoe, they could have spent a little more time on the design.

a complete waste of money, beyond gaudy, and represent everything I loathe about capitalism. They also represent oppression of women. Ugh!!!

She stuck expensive diamonds on a pair of heels from primark, that she spray painted gold. Crafty.

Only two questions remain. Who will buy these shoes? And what size are they?
