5 OF THE BEST EXTREME HEELS
By Eleanor Dunne, 30 June 2019
While the reign of the trainer continues for the day-to-day, extreme OTT stilettos are still high (lol) on the agenda for SS19. OK, they hurt sometimes, and walking long distances in them is not recommended – but, if you believe in their power, a pair of sky-scraper heels are 100% worth it. Think of them as a 'from the house to the taxi to sitting down at the bar' kinda thing. Keep scrolling to see five of the best.
These classic black barely theres are giving us luxe Tom Ford vibes – and they're made all the more special with that sharp gold pencil heel. Perfect with a sophisticated LBD on your next night out, they're the very definition of fancy footwork.
Orange you pretty
The neon trend that is everywhere RN extends to your feet, too. Wear these rope-detail stilettos with a look in a matching shade for an oh-so-extra ensemble, ideal for wild holiday nights. Ibiza, here we come.
See right through
The internet lit up last September when Beyonce’s Public Desire perspex heels were mistaken for Yeezys, even by Kanye himself. This season, the brand updates the see-through style with these snake-plastic hybrids. If Bey’s on board, so are we.
Make your point
Point-toe, high-heel sandals are definitely a thing this summer – peep the first drop from Rihanna’s new LVMH-backed label Fenty for evidence. A white pair is a go-with-everything option, but we see these beauts with mom jeans and a milkmaid top.
Diamantes are forever
And, finally, these sparkly wonders are like a diamond bracelet, but for your feet. Born to be worn with a satin 90s slip dress, they're begging to be taken to dinner and drinks. And we shall oblige.
