A surreal sight will greet Cheltenham Festival visitors this year with a set of limited edition boots being worn by models at the meeting.

The high heeled boots, priced at £1,300 a pair, are designed to look like a pair of horse’s hooves.

The imitation hoof itself is made out of carbon fibre and the legs use 5,000 individual horsehairs to complete the look.

The zip-up boots, commissioned by Betfair to celebrate Cheltenham’s centenary, come in either ankle or knee-length.

Dress code for the four-day festival tends to be country casual and organisers always advise to dress for the weather.

Model Louise Dainton, 25, from Essex, told the Mail Online: “They are really comfortable and almost make you feel like you want to get on the track and gallop down the final furlong.

“I’m not sure they are for everyone, but I definitely would like a pair of these hooves.”

Proceeds from the horse shoe will go to charity.
