Rice Paper Boots

Boots made from Rice Paper

Sergio Rossi and artist Peng Wei's fragile footwear

They may be beautiful, but these boots aren't made for walking. Chinese artist Peng Wei and luxury Italian footwear label Sergio Rossi have teamed up to give their classic knee-high Chelsea Boot an artistic twist - by creating them from hand-painted rice paper.

Inspired by traditional Chinese art, each of the boot features a different design, from floral oriental prints to fighting scenes. Currently on display in Paris at the Sergio Rossi boutique, they aren't the first fashion objects we've spotted made from unusual materials this year - just take the dresses made from wine and even gummy bears.

And whilst the boots are far to fragile too wear (even fashion mavericks like Daphne Guinness and Anna Dello Russo would shy away from these), the intricate designs certainly are beautiful to look at. See some of the boots in the gallery below.
