Here’s a bizarre story that you can file under “it actually makes sense once you see it”: A chocolatier in Japan is offering up a limited edition line of convincingly realistic-looking sets of men’s dress shoes fashioned entirely out of chocolate.
Keep in mind, I never said the idea was practical: Why you’d want your chocolate presented to you in the form of a 10-inch long dress shoe is beyond me. However, from an aesthetic standpoint, the so-called “Gentleman’s Radiance” line of chocolate shoes is visually striking – with the chocolate’s varying brown hues doing an amazing job of mimicking the colors, textures and even luster you’d expect from luxury leather men’s dress shoes. That is, at least in the photos we’re seeing. Maybe in person they’d look more like Hershey bars you wear on your feet?
