Selfridges department store are offering up a shoe lover's dream (or possibly nightmare*) thanks to their unique advent calendar - a bespoke Hendzel & Hunt wooden cabinet packed with miniature replicas of designer footwear costing an eye-watering £18,000.

The teeny tiny designs include work from Fendi
, Rupert Sanderson, Maison Martin Margiela and Dries Van Noten and have been crafted using the same or similar techniques as the full-size versions (also available in Selfridges
). You can get a sense of scale with the picture we tweeted on @MyDailyUK
of one of the miniatures next to the full size version!
A selection of other exclusive miniatures from the likes of Charlotte Olympia (available in six different colour-ways at £295 per pair) and Vivienne Westwood
(a rather tempting £5 for her Melissa replicas) are available to buy separately but owning the complete collection is only possible if you're the lucky recipient of the cabinet.
Take a look through the gallery below to see which designers have given their footwear the downsizing treatment...
*We're saying nightmare because you'd end up with a cupboard full of beautiful shoes you couldn't even cram your toes into!
