40 Pairs of Mega Heels

From Heidi Klum's 12" Platforms to Pistol Stilettos

— April 17, 2009 — Fashion
Heidi Klum towered in 12" heels for Vogue, Madonna wore dangerously sexy shoes with pistol-shaped heels, and recent runways have threatened the fragile necks of waif models with daredevil stilettos.

Implications - You will be tripping over yourself as you march through these numerous pairs of high heels. It is amazing how some girls still manage to walk with such poise and grace even when their feet are strapped into monstrous pairs of footwear. For some women, four inches is as high as they go; but for those more daring you can never tell what heights they'll reach.

This list highlights some of the most ridiculously high heels and whiplash-worthy stilettos featured on Trend Hunter.
