Another week, another world record broken in the UAE. This time, it’s for the world’s most expensive shoe, which was unveiled on Friday onboard a yacht in Dubai Marina.

As part of MIDE (Made in Italy, Designed in Emirates) Fashion Week, Italian designer Antonio Vietri has unveiled his latest creation, The Moon Star Shoes, worth a whopping $19.9 million (Dh73 million).

The current Guinness World Record for the most expensive pair of shoes is $15.5 million dollars.

The shoes are made up of a solid gold heel, 30 carats of diamonds and contain a small piece of meteorite discovered in Argentina in 1576.

Vietri is no stranger to designing record-breaking shoes. Back in 2017, he showcased a pair of 24-carat gold stilettos in Dubai, worth more than Dh120,000. Speaking at the time, the UAE-based designer said, "The word impossible does not exist in my vocabulary".
