55 Creative High-Heel Designs

From 3D-Printed High Heels to Striking Icicle Stilettos

— June 25, 2015 — Fashion
There is no doubt that adding a beautiful pair of heels to an outfit can really complete a fashionable look, but some of these creative high-heels make an even bigger statement.

A shoe can be an accessory or it can be accessorized. For example, Jerome C. Rousseau's luxurious opulent high-heels are made with more than 7,000 jewels and beads. This gorgeous shoe looks like it is wearing a statement necklace of its own. Another creative high-heel idea is to remove the heel altogether. The UNX2 is an avant-garde shoe that is sleek and sculpture-like as it wraps around the foot in a tubular form dismissing any idea of adding a heel to the cohesively flowing footwear.

Shoes are an important part of piecing together an outfit and often times they are the focal point. Whether a woman is wearing a 3D printed heel or a stiletto dripping with icicles, the design ideas are endlessly intriguing.
