Giant Chocolate Sandal in KL

At the International Shoe Festival 2011 in Kuala Lumpur, to be held in the Putra World Trade Centre there was a giant chocolate sandal made from 130kg of chocolate. The 3.06 meter long chocolate shoe is a scale model of an actual Nyonya-beaded shoe. Traditionally these are wedding shoes and this mouth-watering creation was made by YTL Hotel chief artist Frankie Lee using black chocolate, marzipan and cocoa.
Other attractions at this year’s exhibition include a Shoe History Gallery and an exclusive showcase of Malaysian shoe designer Datuk Jimmy Choo's couture footwear. On display are 10 pairs of rare old shoes signifying the history of shoe making in the region. The International Shoe Festival has 166 booths featuring local designers such as Zang Toi, Nose, Dr Cardin, Carlo Rino and Fiorucci.
