As I was perusing my favorite on-line shoe site (Zappo.com) I ran across these high heel flippers! Yeah! These are for real. Not sure what occasion calls for them – snorkeling in the White House pool, perhaps?
After an investigation, I learned that an artist from Belgium named Paul Schietekat invented the High Tide Heels . . . which are basically a cross between high-heel stiletto shoes . . . and diving flippers used in snorkeling.
For the life of me I can’t think of a practical use for these hybrids.. . . I have polled every single employee at Deluded Diva.com (all one of us) and have decided to proclaim these shoes as the world’s dumbest invention. I have a hard enough time walking in a straight line without tripping myself. These would be disastrous.
Having said all this, there is something charmingly barbie-esque about them, and I’m sure that the next Scuba Barbie will be wearing these in pink, along with a mini-skirt wetsuit to match.
