High Heels
More strange images from my inbox. These shoes look like some kind of art project. I don't think it would be possible to walk in them.

Awesome vid by the White stripes! I haven't seen that one before. Anyway, I've had a few pair of ballet heels myself and yes they are walkable with practice and plenty of toe padding!

I have two pairs of ballet boots, ankle and knee high, and I love them both.
Unfortunately I'm not really able to walk in them.
I can stand for a little while and make some steps, but no balance, so I need the wall if I want to go somewhere, which is really becoming painful, but I love the feeling of these shoes.
I also intend to buy a pair of pony boots from punitiveshoes.com, in hope that I might be able to walk in them. I can walk in 6 inch heels and I think the step from 6 inch to the pony boots might be possible.
And the pony boots seem to be very comfortable and walkable, but because of their price, I have to save some money until I afford myself this little treat.
If someone could tell me anything about the ponyboots, I would be absolutely happy to hear.
About the comment from bon qui qui, there is no logic behind when it comes to these shoes...
They are overpriced (comparing to "normal" heels), impossible to wear and to walk (for most of the people) and not very practical or healthy, BUT they are looking beautiful for a lot of people, and how they feel, ballet or pony boots, they are just incredible.

The fourth one of the first line impressed me most, what is that? How can I take it as a high heels shoe from the picture I saw. It

all of these shoes are walkable. (i'm not saying i can walk in them, but i have seen others do it.) my best was a 10" platform thigh high boot.
