It was Tali of Fetishist’s Notes who drew these shoes to my attention, and I’m really glad she did, because these have to be the most amazing shoes I’ve seen in a long time.
Of course, I’m using the word “amazing” here in the sense of “amazing to look at”, rather than “amazing to own and wear”. When I clicked through to the Solestruck website, I was surprised to find that these were actually available to buy, because generally when you see shoes like these, they’re a one-off, custom-made design created purely for the catwalk, or for an art exhibition… or for Lady Gaga.
But no, you, too, can buy these shoes, and if you do, you’ll get to find out what it’s like to balance atop that 6.5″ platform (which Solestruck say you CAN walk in). Sure, you’ll have to pay $1000 for the privilege, but as I said to Tali, if I had the opportunity to try these on (for free, naturally), I’d definitely take it!
Would you take it, too? Is it worth $1,000 to you? If so, click here to buy these from Solestruck.
