Wearing shoes that appear invisible may seem counter-intuitive, but footwear designer Andreia Chaves‘ “Invisible Shoe” is too cool to dismiss.

The “Invisible Shoe” is a low-cut, high-heeled boot, covered by fragmented pieces of mirror. The result? The shoe reflects its surroundings and blends in with its environment. Step into grass? It turns green. Step onto concrete? It reflects grey.

Andreia Chaves was born in Brazil and now lives in Milan. She graduated in 2010 with a Footwear and Accessories degree at Polimoda International Institute in Florence.

In her interview with Not Just A Label, Chaves states that she is inspired by details in her day to day life, including nature, urban textures, geometric patterns and surfaces.

According to her website, I.T Hong Kong and I.T Beijing are retailers of her merchandise beginning March 2011.

I hope Lady Gaga wears these for her next music video. These are really her style.
