If Snow White lived in modern times, there's a good chance that she would have dropped one of these porcelain heels at the club when the clock struck midnight. These pearly white heels were created by Laura Papp, a design student of Budapest's Moholy–Nagy University of Art and Design. The shoes were molded in porcelain, with the sole is made of rubber and the vamp made from leather.

Despite the fact that the porcelain heels are made from, well, porcelain, they weigh in at only one kilogram (about two pounds) and can support weight up to 160 kilos (352 pounds). The porcelain heels were inspired by Antoni Gaudí's Sagrada Familia, the famous basilica located in Spain. Stats for Designer Ceramic Wedges Trending: Older & Buzzing
