These leather shoes are actually made of what?
Now why anyone would want to make or buy a pair of these shoes is beyond me, but these super-realistic looking leather shoes actually cost more than the real ones that you wear on your feet. So what exactly are they made of? Read on to find out . . .
Motohiro Okai of Rihga Royal Hotel’s chocolate boutique L’éclat, in Osaka, Japan, is a master chocolatier, and now, he's a master shoemaker as well. Called the "Gentlemen's Radiance," this new line of chocolate is created in the shape of a pair of brown leather shoes, complete with detailed seams, soles, shoelaces and a perfect finish. The ever-so-sweet shoes come in three grades of brown — light, dark, and reddish. The reasoning behind making delicious high-end chocolate look like a pair of potentially smelly leather shoes is unknown, but the craftsmanship behind the creation of this line is something to be admired. Each pair costs 29,160 yen, which is about 260 dollars. Yes, more expensive than most shoes. But the difference with Mr. Okai's shoes, is that you can eat them.
And because they are such a luxury, only nine pairs will be available, and only by reservation. Not that it matters, but the shoes only come in 26 cm, or about 10 inches. Once the reservations are accepted, the sweet pair of chocolate shoes will be delivered just in time for Valentine's Day.
I still don't get it.
