After releasing sock-like Vetements boots that featured a lighter-inspired heel, the designer brand is back with a range of leather ankle boots that have heels constructed from reflectors, which are similar to those found on the backs of cars and bicycles.

Although the reflectors have a bit of an unconventional shape, they're thick enough to provide the same support as a pair of sturdy stilettos. The leather uppers that sit on top are form-fitting, giving the wearer's feet and ankles an elegant feminine look. This is further enhanced by the toes of the Vetements boots, which have a rounded point to them.

Currently, the reflector-heel boots are available from online retailers, where they reportedly sell for anywhere from $8,960 USD to $10,458 USD.
