Some say Persian women are the best dressed, most fashionable females around the world…And we totally agree!

So is it safe to assume that Gucci’s latest must-have heels were inspired by Iranian women?


See, the luxury brand has given its gorgeous 4.1″ high heel sandal with strass embroidery (pictured above) a Persian name: Soraya.

Soraya is of Persian origin and means, “princess”. (It’s also a variant of “Sara”.)

We love the new addition to the collection regardless of the Persian factor…But we must admit, with a price tag of $1,100.00, we’re slightly hesitant to make the purchase right away.

Do YOU like the shoes?
