Japanese designer created fondue shoes

Japanese designer Satsuki Ohata came up with shoes that fit the size of the legs.

The main idea is that the buyer of these shoes dips their feet in polyvinyl chloride to create an impression around the foot. When this mold dries, then it becomes a shoe, quite suitable for wearing. Ohata came up with these shoes when he watched people feast on a Swiss fondue dish - melted cheese dipped in vegetables and chicken.

“I recommend that people dunk their feet with the heel up if they want to get their hands on something like flip flops, or you can allow the plastic to rise above the heel to the ankle, and then you will have full shoes,” says Ohata. “As long as they are dry, they do not wear out which I consider to be a pretty practical quality. My shoes can be easily washed in the sink and towel dried. "

True, experts doubt that these shoes will become popular on the street, because any sharp object on the road will easily break through the coating and injure the owner of the shoes. The designer has already promised to solve this problem in the near future.
