See photos of shoe coffin used to bury a cobbler

A shoe coffin has been constructed to bury and honour a cobbler (shoemaker) who passed away.

At first glance, the coffin just looks like a giant shoe used to decorate a room or maybe a giant shoe abandoned in a room.

In photos of the coffin that were shared on social media, two men were seen working on the construction of the shoe.

The photos showed that the shoe coffin could be opened by the sole. The shoe coffin was beautifully constructed with a complete shoe lace and a sole.
