Move aside, diamonds, because high heels are a girl's new best friend. There's nothing else in the world that makes a girl drool more than a pair of Christian Louboutins, and these innovative heels are just the cherry on top. From tripod stilettos to illuminating heels, ordinary just isn't an option for these shoes.

Implications - High-heeled shoes are a perennial favorite of fashionistas and working women. As office dress codes relax slightly and street fashion trends toward extreme personalization, style-savvy consumers are increasingly opting for unusual heels that showcase aspects of their personality. Creative professionals can take advantage of this opportunity by reworking the traditional heel to appeal to a niche market.
