Smallest shoe in the world

nano shoe 01

It is said one has to start small…

The smallest shoe known to the world measures 12μm (Micrometer) or 0,000472  Inch, a human hair is between 80 and 100μm thick. This sandal was specially made in 2005 for the smallest museum in town by Tristan Bret, then doctorial student at the polytechnicum in Lausanne. It is so small we can’t even see it with our optic microscope.
