The highest heels on the high street

I’m getting ready to walk a whole lot taller with the latest lust-worthy heels on offer at Debenhams. We’ve launched a staggering SIX inch stiletto and at £65, the MissKG Goldie is a fraction of the usual £500 price tag associated with these types of towering heels. I am a shoe shop regular and I reckon these are the highest heel on the high street for the lowest price.
Ever increasing heel heights are driven by celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole whose heels are always around the six-inch mark. Victoria Beckham famously donned a pair of towering stilettos to visit an LA theme park but I think I’ll be keeping mine for nights out on the town.
It’s a tough task creating shoes this high for this price. Extra craftsmanship and more material are required because the heels need to be tough enough to hold the wearer’s weight and withstand the harder impact when they walk. Can you carry off this dizzying heel height?
Tips for walking tall:
- Take shorter steps
- Place your weight on the ball of your foot and lean back into the heel
- Avoid uneven ground like cobblestones – that’s just asking for trouble
- If you can’t walk in them, don’t wear them… either that or get a taxi!
