Glitchy High Heels

Journey by Privileged Appears to Suffer from a Digital Defect

— May 5, 2014 — Fashion
At first glance, the image of Journey by Privileged, a sky-high pair of heels, looks as though it has succumbed to a digital glitch. Yet the design of the shoe is purposefully deceptive. The extra platform and notched heel gives the design an avant garde appeal that would attract the attention of such fashion experimenters as Lady Gaga.

Tall and strappy, Journey by Privileged is a great way to make a statement this summer season. Granted, not on a regular basis. It is available in four colors: yellow, black, blue and red. Made out of a synthetic upper with velcro straps, Journey by Privileged is made entirely in China. What is most impressive about the design is its stacked 6 1/2 inch heel and 2 1/2 inch platform.
