Most people would consider it a bad thing to have a cheesy smell emanating from their feet, but not fashion student Lisa Dillon.

She has designed and built some high-heeled shoes made from cheese and bread in order to promote the annual 2011 Royal Bath and West Show, which is an event held to show off the region's produce.

The Bath Spa University Department of Fashion, Textile and 3D Design student sculpted the front of the shoe using a block of cheddar, before adding another block for the heel.

The platform sole had to be made from a stale cheese sandwich for stability, with the final result being dubbed 'Jimmy Cheese'.

A range of other creations also commissioned by food manufacturer Pilgrim's Choice will be on display at the festival for visitors to admire.

The National Cheese Awards will once again take place on the day too, so anyone in the Bath area should not miss out on the chance to see 700 different kinds of dairy produce in one place – let's hope there's not a sudden infestation of mice.
