24-carat gold shoes in Dubai for Dh80,000

Everything that glitters is not gold, but the glittering Italian shoes and sandals displayed at the Leatherworld Middle East exhibition in Dubai are covered with real 24k gold.
The price? A whopping €18,000 (Dh 74,870) for the pair of golden shoes.
The price-tag of a pair of platinum shoes is €20,000 (Dh83,190) and the silver-finished pair cost €3,000 (12,480).
“The golden, silver and platinum shoes are major crowd-pullers. These unique handmade leather shoes are launched for the first time in the region by A&E Fashion Group,” said Antonio Vietri from Eduardo Vietri, an Italian company.
The custom-made shoes are produced by Italian master craftsmen who hold the world patent for the design.
