The giant shoe that's good enough to eat!
What could be better than a gorgeous-looking high heeled shoe? A giant shoe made from delicious sweeties of course, and that's what Designer Outlet company McArthur Glen have gone and made to celebrate a 'bumper first quarter' on their accessory sales for Spring/Summer 2012. Om nom nom!
The sweet stiletto, which was put together for the company by Bassetts confectionery features 22,000 of the UK's favourite treats: Liquorice Allsorts. In the image below, we see a style consultant putting the finishing touches on to the shoe. Shoe brands including Kurt Geiger, Nike, Adidas, Clarks and L.K Bennett are all sold at discount prices at McArthur Glenn's outlets around the UK.
Donna Goodwin, Marketing Manager at McArthurGlen'ss East Midlands Designer Outlet, said: "We've seen a 9% increase in accessories sales compared to the first quarter last year, with handbags and jewellery up an average of 8% and shoes up a huge double digit 10%, as shoppers prepare their Spring wardrobes.
