Stiletto Metal Works Unleashes the 13 Inch Heel
Had quite enough of those poorly-made, imitation-everything, pure-Chinese-junk, fall-apart-out-of-the-box, mas-produced injection-molded-vinyl torture devices designed exclusively to take your money and give nothing back in return?
Most people take around 10 minutes to get used to walking on a 13 inch heel. Some more, some less. They typically will hold on to someone for support during the first few moments. After a bit of practice they can actually walk up and down stairs, ramps, and on uneven surfaces. The sensation of being up so high can be a bit un-nerving at first, but once they get used to it they don’t want to go back down to “street level” again. Especially if they’ve spent they’re entire life being short.
They are also amazingly comfortable to wear. Shoe comfort and stilettos in the same sentence? Beauty is supposed to be pain. Fortunately, Stiletto Metal Works refuses to buy into that outdated trash-talk. The laws of physics do not lie. There is no way to absorb the shock loads imposed upon a human foot by simply placing a wafer-thin pad underneath it.
Shoes built by Stiletto Metal Works have THICK memory foam padding at the bottom... VERY thick... and covered with stretched deerskin. Their opinion is that the wearer who has paid such a premium price for a couture product deserves to enjoy their night out while dancing and schmoozing... not sitting outside on the curb with their feet in a bucket of ice.
Don't get too excited though, at prices ranging from $2,000 - $6,000 these shoes are not cheap, and they can take up to 6 weeks to build. Take a look at http://stilettometalworks.com/
