Smallest shoe in the world

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.

    can we get that into an actual shoe size, and can we see it with the naked eye?
