ALBAWBA - Social media users have been debating the price of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi's shoes price during the summit that took place in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates.

A Reddit user, named Mr_Ph4ntom, posted a photo of Sisi's brown shoes from the summit and a picture of Gucci shoes, claiming that the Egyptian president's shoes belong to the Italian brand.

Each pair of the "Gucci Jordaan leather loafer" shoes is worth $920.

People slammed the Egyptian president for wearing expensive shoes while Egypt is facing a deteriorating economic situation as the $1 hit 29.92 Egyptian Pounds (EGP).

A person commented: "Guys, these are Chinese rep not real Gucci, he will never do that to us." Another added: "He prob sold an island for him to get those shoes."
