They may hurt, but just think of the workout your calves are getting. This season the poor foot must brace itself for the ultra-high-heel. To make sure you select a pair which are really ‘en vouge’ pick those which look the most painful and elevate you to skyscraper heights. In fact so high that the air is noticeably thinner and you get a bit nauseous when you bend down to tie your shoelaces – with that in mind, it might be an idea to avoid ones with laces. If you’re vertically challenged, these are going to be your new best friends because they are the beasts of the shoe kingdom…Grrrrrrrr. Like the rattlesnake’s fangs they’re pointy and dangerous. Office have a range of shockingly spiky ultra-heels if you think your feet can hack it? This peep-toe pair are in brown crocodile style leather, great if you really want to run and jump (not that you could) with the stylish predator/prey idea, but if brown croc isn’t really your taste they also come in metallic gold. Office have named their impossibly high range “Party All Night”, which seems a little ironic, as you know that with a 4cm lacquered platform and a 14cm heel you’ll be walking home barefoot.
