Whether you are a man or women, you know that there is a huge allure whenever it comes to sky high heels. For men, they look sexy on women and stimulate their senses in every way imaginable. For women, they make us taller, slimmer, and feel a mixture of confident and sexy that is simply powerful. High heels are simply intoxicating for anyone who looks upon a woman strutting her stuff while wearing them.
Although, is it possible that things have gotten out of control? Have the heels that we love so much gotten so high that it’s impossible for many of us to wear them? Living in a world that is very fashion conscious, and fashion forward, we find ourselves constantly trying to keep up with these trends that may or may not be too high for us to handle!
Either way, designers all over the world have indulged in this erotic trend-setting style that has captured audiences everywhere. Some have featured these designs in their runway shows, while others have curated pieces for museums that most likely are too high to ever actually support a human foot. So no matter if you like to just look at this trend or give it a try yourself, there is truly something for everyone.
In the matter of high heels, the true distinction is a matter of personal opinion. Most people would argue that a high heel that is four inches and beyond is considered a “high heel,” while anything that is six inches and beyond (and most likely doesn’t give you the ability to be mobile in) are considered to be “sky high heels.” However, we suppose that the true answer is really; how high is too high? To that, most people in the fashion industry would simply answer, “nothing.”

These shoes have become iconic for a few different reasons. First, because they were designed by Alexander McQueen. Second, because they rocked his Spring/Summer 2010 Collection as soon as they came down the runway. Third, they really do resemble Armadillos and lastly, because Lady Gaga wore a version of them in her Bad Romance music video. Either way you look at it; these shoes have made an impact for their peculiar shape and ten inch and beyond height. The heels are made from various materials and embellishments, which heavily impact their high price.
