Stainless Steel Stillettos


[Media: Images]

I think a better name for them would be Steel-ettos. Hah!

I'm usually not much interested in fashion beyond various nerdy T-Shirts, and that especially holds true for women's fashion, but these Stainless Steel Stilettos provide an odd curiosity to me. I tend to like all things odd or weird, so I think these fall safely into that category.

Stilettos on their own always look excruciatingly painful and uncomfortable to the wearer. They seriously can't be much fun to wear. But that's the appeal of them, the pain and exaggeration. Stilettos become a fetish object, and these Steel ones only serve to further that goal. Some of these even come with metal ankle locks. Excellent.
