High Heels: How High Can You Go?

by - Sunday, November 20, 2011

For the past four years, I have been able to fill my shoe cabinet with more than seventy [70] pairs.  Only 5% of them have heels which I rarely use.  I can’t really remember the last time I’ve put on a pair of high heels.  Sometime in 2010, maybe?  I really need to joggle my memory, yeah?

So well.. while flipping through the pages of the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, I can’t help but stare at the platform shoes with huge amazement.  Obviously, my feet aren’t huge fans of stilettos and pumps but my eyes find them gorgeous which is perhaps the reason why I’ve ended up owning a few pairs in my collection in the very first place *sigh*.

Excluding Guinness’ World’s Highest Heeled Shoes with 11-inch platforms and heels that are up to 16 inches [Geez!  My oh my!],how high do you think you can go without falling and embarrassing yourself?


The world’s highest heeled shoes look terrible, don’t you think?  Good luck to anyone who is willing to give this pair a try!

So, let’s forget Guinness’ sky high shoes and take a look at the following killer pumps below.  I wonder, which pairs will you fancy?

While trying to Google for shoes with heels higher than 8 inches, these shoes have caught my attention:


I have no idea how high the heel is but I am guessing, 10 inches? 

I kinda like how two platforms are stacked together to achieve more height.  The flower details add a sweeter touch --- a plus for sure for stiletto lovers!

By the way, this work of art is designed by the famous shoe maker from Bucharest, Romania, Mihai Albu who is also the one responsible in creating this one:


This shoe is 12 inches high.  That’s around 31 centimeters!  As you can see, three black wedges are put together for this piece.  If you are wondering, each pair costs more or less $1,500.  Want one?  Just drop by Mihai Albu’s online shop at www.mihaialbu.
There you go!  How are you doing?  Are you drooling or are you suffering from migraine Sleepy smile even if you don’t actually have one?
