'Gentleman's Radiance' is a line of special chocolates from Rihga Royal Hotel's chocolate boutique. However, by looking at the line, most people wouldn't be able to tell. That's because the Gentleman's Radiance chocolate morsels look almost indistinguishable from a set of men's leather shoes.
The line was created by Japanese chocolatier Motohiro Okai, and it features three pairs of incredibly realistic chocolate shoes. By using different types of chocolate, Okai was able to create three shades of mock leather -- dark, light, and red. Further, the laces of the shoes and even the shoehorns and bottle of polish that come with the set are made from chocolate.
Though the chocolate shoes can't actually be worn on one's feet, at a retail price of almost $260, they're on par with a pair of genuine leather loafers.
