The shoe craze that is reaching new heights
Women love to add a few inches to their height and heels are the perfect way to do this, but it seems as women want add even more inches to their legs, shoe designers are adding even more inches to the soles of their creations - making for some vertiginous heels that women are finding it hard to stand up in (let alone walk in).
The trend for the exaggerated platform first moved into the mainstream five years ago, and has been gaining pace (and inches) ever since.
It seems the bigger the celebrity the bigger the heels - take a look through our gallery of the stars who are towering head and shoulders above the rest of the fash-pack.

It's just a case of moderation in myview. I personally would never wear shoes like these, I can't stand up in them never mind walk! But that's just me and if other women can and want to that's up to them. I think it's stupid to wear them all the time and end up with muscle damage just to appear fashionable but if you wear them for the occasional night out and wear sensible shoes the rest of the time where's the harm? Apart from maybe falling off them if you drink too much!
What's the point? All you get, according to my other half, is a damaged back due to the posture the muscles are forced into, damaged ankles, damaged toes, damaged feet and joints, plus bunnions (look those up!). So apart from wanting to be in fashion why would any woman want to wear shoes that were the trend for Roman Call Girls?
You just look ridiculous!
Okay I'd be a hypocrite if I said these were the evil of the earth as I myself (even being the biggest tomboy ever) have a rather fetching pair. However, I don't wear them so often that any lasting damage can be done and only wear them for special occasions for short periods of time. Because yes they do give you an amazing silhouette but the pain to achieve it is not worth worth it all the time.
So like all other beauty and fashion product it's fine; in moderation.
