A kimono for your feet

How adorable are these shoes? They are from a new collection from designer Amanda Fox of Dames & Divas and every pair is completely one of a kind (or is that two of a kind?). Each pair is made using organic cotton denim with vintage silk kimono fabrics from Japan.

Amanda says she likes to think of her pieces as “wearable art” and says these shoes were inspired by Japanese culture. “I’ve always had a fascination with the Japanese culture and geishas,” she says. “Each silk kimono is at least 30 years old and comes with its own history. My customers wonder about the fabric and its past life - it has a mysterious attraction.”

The collection includes a range of styles including wedges, peep toe heels, kitten heels and ballet flats and prices vary from $119.95 to $219.95. You can only buy them online at
