Passers-by will be salivating over your delicious-looking footwear.
One of the most enticing things about eating out in Japan is the chance to gaze upon stunning food replicas in restaurant display windows, which show exactly what they have on offer, in beautifully recreated plastic form. The food samples are so popular that small versions can be purchased at specialty shops as souvenirs, but for those who want to add some delicacies to their wardrobe, Japanese retailer Fake Food Hatanaka is the place to go.
▼ Fancy a décolletage dripping with delectable citrus? This store has you covered.
Fake Food Hatanaka first wowed us back in 2013 with their head-turning range of jewellery and headbands, which caused a sensation online again this year with some more snazzy updates. While a browse through their collection turns up some curious products, some of their showstoppers can be found in the company’s footwear department, with two pairs of boots that look so refreshingly delicious we don’t know whether we want to wear them or bite into them!
The “Orange Cake Short Boots” retail for 10,800 yen (US$104), which is not a bad price, considering that most of the restaurant-style food replicas retail for 10,000 yen each.
The juicy-looking sliced oranges have been carefully arranged around each boot to enhance the realism and give them an aesthetically pleasing finish.
▼ The long Orange Cake Boots retail for 28,000 yen.
This design features an extra serving of delicious orange slices, with the base colour resembling a warm, cooked cake surface.
▼ It’s the perfect way to brighten up a dreary, rainy day!
Although with fruit as realistic as this, you might want to keep some oranges nearby to stop yourself from licking your boots!
If you want to add some zest to your shoe collection, head over to the Fake Food Hatanaka store, where the boots can be ordered online for shipping around the world. While you’re there, you might want to check out all their other amazing products, like drinks, sweets, and sandwiches too!
