The fact that the Japanese can their handicraft is hardly a secret, and here we see further evidence of this. Shoes made entirely of chocolate, made in size UK7. Price: €300.


It is Rihga Royal Hotel’s chocolaterie L’éclat in Osaka who are behind the works, led by their master chocolate maker Motohiro Okai.
