Malaysia International Shoe Festival 2011


New this year, is the Malaysia International Shoe Festival 2011, showcasing collection of shoes either for sale or for exhibition of creative design. Of course our own Jimmy Choo is also showcasing his collection for the public. As I am more interested in the creative design aspect, the photos here shows some of the interesting and bizarre design of shoes.

The most interesting for me is this giant shoe made out of chocolate in the shape of traditional nyonya shoe...seriously, with the aroma of chocolate filling the room, I was tempted to chip some of the piece and have a I wish.

These are shoes made out of wood, not the traditional wooden ones, but with the modern high heels design. The wood were usually taken from rubber tree, but some of them were made from durian tree.

The process of making the shoes in different stages.

1. The wood is cut to make a rough shape of a shoe.
2. The shape is cut into a woman’s shoe.
3. The shape is refine further with added curvatures.
4. Then, varnish was added as well as the padding on the sole.
5. Add a leather straps here and there and walla…you have yourself a high heel shoes made out of wood.

This shoe from Indonesia is interesting…and scary…
