Shoe Porn: 10 Lust-Worthy Heels

Shoe porn…yes it’s a real thing. We lust over food, models; the thoughts of sex…so why not add something else tangible to the mix? There are so many shoes that hit the runways and red carpets that unfortunately never set foot into shoe stores because they are much too exclusive or expensive to produce, and in some cases not even truly wearable. This makes shoe porn addicts angry. Yet, shoe lovers everywhere stalk them, yearn for them, and yes—even lust after them.

Shoe porn can be defined as a shoe so exquisite, embellished, and rare that very few people have ever gotten their hands on them. These are shoes made by the top designer in the world in restricted quantities, and sometime designs that are so elaborate they never make it beyond the sketch and into production.

These are the shoes that belong or have already been displayed in museums, as they are works of art in every way imaginable and leave us feeling quite flustered after looking at them.

Every addiction has its consequences, after all, so it’s very important that you ponder a few questions about your love of shoes. Or else, reading any further may leave you very, very broke with maxed out credit cards.

• Do you spend many hours a day surfing the web looking at new shoes? Or find that you lose hours in the day thinking about shoes?
• If you walk past a store window front that is featuring the newest season arrivals or your favorite designer’s footwear, are you able to walk past without going inside?
• Are you desperately trying to pay down your credit cards debt after one too many shoe shopping sprees have taken place?

Worn years ago whenever Galliano was still designing for Dior’s runway shows, these heels had the audience all steamed up. Don’t be fooled by the leather corset-like support around the ankle, the thin heels are meant to be flung up in the air!
