The world's largest collection of shoes for sale opened Friday in Dubai, a city dotted with luxury malls and high-end boutiques.
Called the Level Shoe District, the store takes up 96,000 square feet of real estate. It's stocked with 15,000 different styles from 250 brands. That's enough footwear for even Carrie Bradshaw-level shopaholics to swoon.
"The whole idea is to create a place for men and women who love shoes, who are passionate about shoes, who are addicted to shoes, who are obsessed about shoes," Patrick Chalhoub, chief executive of Chalhoub Group, the force behind the megastore, told Bloomberg.
Luxe brands such as Gucci and Prada dominate the floor, with the store putting out many designer styles earlier than any other store in the world, he said.
