Luxirare is one blog with a sixth sense for bizarre fashion on the brink of mainstream exposure -- like these towering black suede wedges. These ankle booties have a platform that spans more than 7.5" in height. Wow.

As if the sheer tallness of these stilted heels wasn't enough, they are handcrafted as well as one-of-a-kind. I'm not sure what would be more difficult: making these shoes yourself or walking in them?

Implications - Consumers are always on the look out for methods to differentiate themselves from their peers. In this example, fashion designers achieved this goal by adding substantial amounts of inches to the wearer of these shoes' height. Corporations in other industries may also benefit from releasing products which satiate consumer desire to be different from others.
