Cheltenham, Mar 16 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Shoe fanatics and collectors have something to look forward to, in the National Hunt Festival which is being held in Cheltenham.
Shoes made like a horse’s foot are up for grabs at the festival. Though the cost of the shoes is a bit steep at 1300 pounds, yet they are sure to be lapped up. The unique shoes have been created by a group of designers.
The shoes were specially created to celebrate the centenary of the National Hunt Festival, which is all set to start on Tuesday. The shoes have been created by 5000 individual horse hairs and they have a carbon-fibre hoof as well. The designers also ensured that the wearer of the shoes can have some variety while wearing them. So the shoes are basically zip-up and they have 2 different lengths as well, which can be customized according to the mood of the wearer. One length is up to the ankle and the other is up to the knee.
25 years old model Louise Dainton was the one who modeled the human horseshoes, and she said about the experience that, “I’m not sure they are for everyone but I definitely want a pair of hooves.”
