High heels with no heel

March 2, 2008

I thought the Marc Jacobs’ inverted heel creation would be the last time we are going to see ridiculously unstable high heels for good. Then again, designers are always searching for attention by churning out controversial items right? British Designer Antonio Beradi had decided to create a pair of sky-high heels that look like this:


It’s 5 1/2 inches off the ground, if you’re wondering.

This pair of heels could have cost a whooping £1,800 but it’s not stopping any shoppers from going crazy over it. Reports have it that ”Gwyneth Paltrow and Uma Thurman had already invested in a black patent version costing more than £1,100, shortly after they were unveiled”, and apparently, there is a five-week waiting list at Browns, the London shoe retailer. And of course, Madame Victoria Beckham has already purchased a pair in snakeskin.

Vogue Italia December 07 cover and editorial.

If I were to ever invest in this ‘masterpiece’, it’s going to cost more than £1,800 because I haven’t count in my insurance policy. Pass me my flats please!

    I love! this isn’t the first pair of no-heel-heels though, they were around even in the 60’s.
    this pair was on Lara Stone’s December Italian Vogue cover.
    fashion should be fun/ridiculous at times.

    my first thought when i saw these shoes was that they would be on victoria beckham’s feet by the end of the month.

    Indeed hideous. I was searching the web to find the name of the designer. Wondering if he does dislike/hates women. I would recommend Mr. Berardi to go out shopping and then go out all night on these no-high-heels-things! And dance of course…….

    These are THE UGLIEST, most disgusting looking shoes I have EVER seen! Anyone who decided to be caught dead,(or alive for that matter) wearing these god awful creations should know that they are looking similar to a transvestite. I’m dead serious. Spend your money on something better, like starving children. And whoever decides to wear this poor excuse for a fashion trend, I hope you fall backwards and break both of your ankles. You would deserve it for looking like a freakin’ idiot. That goes for Victoria Beckham as well. She too is a freakin’ idiot. *VOMIT*

    I love these!!! Where can I buy them? I need these shoes!
    I live in Alice Springs, smack bang in the centre of the Australian desert and shoes are the only thing that keep me sane
    I’ll have to find room in my shoe closet for them tho

    sick stuff the whole high heel business – made for men by men who hate women. Hmmm, it’s that old “be sexy in a way that I define so I can then despises you for it”thing – pity you “ladies” play up to the stupid game. Just think, while you’re staggering about with painful wrecked feet us guys are comfortable and smug…..

    I was wondering who had created these when I saw them on Victoria Beckam for the first time .
    the mystery is solved
