GraziaDaily.co.uk posted an entry about these crazy heels designed by none other than Christian Louboutin. But no, they're not available for retail, FYI, should you be a nut interested in actually wanting a pair. Rather, they were created for public auction to benefit the English National Ballet, which "aims to raise more than £50,000 as its Arts Council grant has been slashed by about £2 million and without fundraising it would have to curb performances and touring."
"Isn't the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel?" asks Mr. Louboutin. "The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven."
I think you'd have to be a serious ballet and shoe aficionado to want the pair. But it is quite pretty; the pair's like the slenderer, ballerina (true enough) sister of the McQueen armadillos.
