A few months ago, I wrote about some of the most expensive suit brands and watch brands in the world. Continuing with tradition, here I present to you some of the most expensive shoe brands in the world. This list is not limited to men’s shoes or women’s shoes. I do plan to make separate hubs for each some other time. This list just consists of the most expensive brands, which manufacture either men’s or women’s shoes.
5 Most Expensive Shoe Brands
When we talk about expensive shoe brands, probably the first two that come to mind are Adidas and Nike. They are undoubtedly expensive. But there are other shoe brands that may be as expensive as these brands, if not more. Here are 5 such expensive shoe brands.
There is no doubt that Nike is one of the most expensive shoe brands in the market. The Air Jordan Silver Shoes is probably the most expensive line of shoes Nike has come out with. Made of silver, this shoe can actually be worn, unlike the golden shoe. Michael Jordan is the brand ambassador for this line of Air Jordan shoes. His pair of shoes with his autograph is now available on eBay for auction at a whopping price of $60,000.
Testoni, the house of some of the most expensive shoes, was founded in 1929 in Bologna by Amedeo Testoni. Testoni is known for its Norwegian style of using world’s finest alligator skin to manufacture its shoes. The same house has come up with men’s dress shoes with linen-twine lined with glove-soft goatskin, and a gold and diamond buckle. These shoes are highly water resistant and cost $38,000.
How many shoe brands can come up with Swarovski studded sports shoes? Probably very few of them. The Italian brand Fila is one of them. The brand came up with a limited edition of Swarovski studded shoes called FILA FX2 to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Only 100 pairs of shoes were made in two colors: black and white, with anti-fur design features.
4) Louis Vuitton
Whoever thought that Louis Vuitton is only a woman’s brand may be in for a surprise. The brand commenced its men’s lace-up line of shoes in Spring/Summer 2010. The shoes are made of waxed alligator leather and look absolutely stunning. The shoe combines traditional craftsmanship with a vintage touch. The pair of shoes easily costs you $10,000. The women’s collection is nothing less. The women’s Vienna Minimalisa High Boots made of ostrich leather cost you $4,500.
Chanel is a women’s shoe brand whose impeccable style and taste transcends its shoe collection. The black and white palette has become iconic over years. The brand features a recognizable intersecting “C” logo on each pair. The shoes come in various styles for women of various ages. The alligator and lambskin pumps from the 2006 collection can cost you a pocket burning $2,875.
So, these are some of the most expensive shoe brands that can easily burn hole into your pockets and purses. Do feel free to add any other brands here.

It will be interesting to see if the prices of Nike kicks sore or go down with them now manufacturing trainers using 3D printing.
