Only in Dubai – A $33,000 pair of gold dipped pumps

In a city where even a breath of air costs a few pennies, we’re not entirely surprised that Dubai is now home to a pair of shoes worth AED 120,000 (USD 33,000). Curated by Italian designer Antonio Vietri, the extremely fashionable pair of footwear is debuting in today’s Leatherworld Middle East 2017,

Fortunately for Vietri, his name is now a rather recognised one in Dubai where only last year a pair of golden loafers was displayed at a staggering AED 300,000 (USD 82,000). Interestingly enough, the pair of shoes were welcomed by footwear fanatics.

“I’m delighted to officially unveil my women’s collection at Leatherworld Middle East 2017, following the resounding success of the global launch of my men’s collection at the show last year,” said Vietri. “Gulf consumers love exclusivity and luxury that’s entirely unique, and I’m excited to present customers and retailers something completely different from anything they’ve seen before.”
