Those who consider fashion as more of an art form than a necessity will fall in love with these Dragon Shoes. Wearable sculptures, people will be walking on four inches of carved marvels when it comes to these designs. If people don't like getting stopped every two seconds in the street, these Dragon Shoes are not for them.

Designed by LanVy Nguyen of Saigon Socialite, a talent born in Vietnam and raised in California, the Dragon Shoes is made out of a leather upper and wooden soles that have been carved with intricate Asian imagery. Taking 18 days to create each sole, the Dragon Shoes are by Chinese craftspeople who live in the Forbidden City. 2,000 pairs of Dragon Shoes are produced each year, so orders should be placed well in advance.
