At US$15.5 million, Debbie Wingham's creation features gold thread and rare diamonds.

British designer Debbie Wingham didn't hold back when it came to designing her latest masterpiece; an extravagant pair of shoes priced at a record-shattering $15.5 million. The shoes are crafted from 24-carat gold thread and adorned with no less than 1,000 diamonds—each rare in colour, size and clarity—including two three-carat pink diamonds worth $4.4m each and two one-carat blue diamonds valued at $1.9m each.

Debbie is no stranger to over-the-top creations. She previously designed the world’s most expensive black diamond dress valued at US$4.6m, the world’s most expensive red diamond abaya valued at US$15.5 million and the world’s most expensive cake valued at US$64.2 million. Now, she can add the world's most expensive shoes to her repertoire.

Described by Debbie as "a bespoke piece of art", the shoes were commissioned by an unnamed client for a (very) lucky lady's 30th birthday but can be admired at Raffles Salon in Dubai until November 3.
