Sculptural shoes inspired by ancient Vietnamese art

Saigon Socialite is a company translating the beauty of ancient Vietnamese art to modern fashion. They produce custom shoes with heels hand-carved from wood into traditional designs like swirls and dragons. Saigon Socialite explains that “no two pairs of shoes are alike. It takes 18 days to translate the artistic abilities of each of our individual wood carving artisans into beautiful wearable art.”

Using these shoes would truly be like wearing a sculpture on your feet. Due to the time it takes to produce each shoe it is not surprising that they cost $450 a pair. See their products and the very cool wood carving process below!
