Prada's car-inspired shoes

ITALIANS love cars and fashion - that's a fact - and Prada is taking that relationship to the next level.

The fashion house's 2012 spring collection has a range of high heels and stilettos styled on the designs of classic 1950s American cars.

The heels are shaped as spoilers, wings and chrome-lined tail lights of the classics and there are some hot-rod versions with flames that lick up the ankle of the person wearing them.

Some of them are even finished with car paint for that authentic shine.

Pricing for the shoes is not yet confirmed but, knowing Prada's prices, a classic American car could well be cheaper.
