Hold on for Dear Life: Skyscraper Heels Reach Dizzying New Heights

The trend for ridiculously high heels has reached an all-time, with the announcement this week that Christian Louboutin is designing a spike-stiletto with an 8-inch heel. For the past few seasons, Louboutin lovers have been tottering around in the designer's 7-inch heels.

One can't help but wonder how much higher the shoes can get. They're obviously not made for walking any great distance, no further than the car to the red carpet, and even that seems like it'd be a struggle. A friend to hold on to for dear life as you walk is a definite must for these shoes.

What goes up, must come down, and I predict the super high heel craze has reached its peak and will soon go down.


Ladies, if you want to stop being disrespected at the shopping malls, try a true, old fashioned fashion experience this weekend. At the corner of West 105th and Clifton is an authentic millinery salon, complete with remade vintage hats, vintage and vintage-inspired jewelry, and a Parisian environment that is absolutely authentic in every way. And the prices are fair, without fake 70% off sales.

It's called Busy Broad, and Marta Glazen has been featured at Henri Bendel in NYC, and her custom hats have appeared at every major event in the nation, many times at the Kentucky Derby. so if you're old fashioned or new fangled, make sure your "black friday" is a "hat friday"!!!!

I agree....heels are way too high 7"
I'm 5'11 and I really don't need that tall a heel. I just can't wait till the style changes
