While the displayed shoes are of European size 36 (UK – 3.5), the pair can be custom-made to fit the particular wearer’s feet, once the full payment is made by the client.
The title of world’s most expensive shoes was previously held by a pair of gold and diamond-covered stiletto heels by UK designer Debbie Wingham. The shoes, reportedly worth $15 million, were made for a Middle Eastern client’s daughter.
