Good morning, ladies, I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely weekend. As I sat here sipping my coffee and perusing the newspaper, I came across an article about the introduction of nine inch heels to the masses, and ouch! It leaves me wondering, who in the heck is going to be able to walk in these??????
Dubbed the "Sky Heel," this shoe is available in vibrant shades of gold and red and costs just under $100. Experts claim that consumer demand drove manufacturers to develop this towering stiletto, in an attempt to mimic the look of celebrities who dare to don 5, 6, or even 7 inch heels.
I love me some high heels, don't get me wrong. In fact, my closet is filled to the brim with 3 and 4 inch heels, but a girl DOES have her limits, you know. Does anyone think these are completely ridiculous? I mean, who could WEAR these (other than Lady Gaga)????
Aside from aesthetics, I also worry about the injuries that these could potentially cause. Twisted ankles, torn tendons, broken wrists from the attempts to break a fall...Yikes!
However, we all have different comfort levels. Some of us feel unsteady in 2 inch heels, while I see girls strutting down the streets of Manhattan, rocking 6 inch spiked heels like runway models.
I'd say that a 4 inch heel would be the tippy tops for me. How about you? Could you rock a 6+ inch heel, or are sneakers more your style?
