Apparently the latest fashion trend is for really high heels and when I say really high I mean at least 5 or 6 inches. This article
charts one reporters day as she tests out a nice looking pair 6 inch stilettos. Although she loves the shoes she ends with the conclusion that they are definitely not comfortable and not at all practical. I think I would have trouble walking in most of the pairs highlighted in the article, but they are nice shoes and I must admit I am tempted; after all you can never have too many pairs of shoes.
The shoes pictured below have a 5 inch heel.
