A right sweet pair of Claire Rayners

To celebrate 25 years of the Nike Air Force 1 trainer, Swiss online fashion store +41 have well and truly bucked any ideas of national stereotyping and created a pair of rather tasty looking AF1’s in… yes, white chocolate. But before you think “mmhmm” – bear in mind that, exquisite as they are, these are “mini” chocolate versions, as the comparison with the tape deck in the second image testifies.

Still, they look good enough to eat (ahem) and you can order your very own pair direct from +41. Actually, orders are only taken on packs of three boxes – each box containing one pair of trainers – so you can give two away as presents you greedy swine you. They will also be available at Colette, Paris very soon.
