STAND OUT: Chen Mingzhi models his latest footwear creation.

Footwear designer Chen Mingzhi took two months to meet his neighbour's challenge to create a big shoe.

The Chinese man made the 1.9 metre long right-foot shoe in his family store in Wenling, Zhejiang province.

If converted into New Zealand shoe sizes, it would be a size 70.

It weighs 38kg and cost NZ$380 to make.
