The latest trend toward sky-high heels is one that I’m a little shy of. Don’t get me wrong, I love how sexy heels make a woman look. And John Fluevog‘s latest heel, the Berlin Mitte, will have people drooling and you smirking.
Inspired by a trip to Berlin where Fluevog saw women riding their bicycles in heels, the designer was inspired to make the highest heel that comfort would allow. And I’m talking high. With a towering 5.5 inch stiletto heel and 1.5 inch platform, the Berlin Mitte is ambitious. But what you can’t tell by looks alone is that the heel, which is custom made in Italy, cups your heel in the back giving the impression of an even higher heel and longer legs. It’s also outfitted with an instep strap with leather tassles, rich dark rub-off leathers and gold lining. Long legs, tassles and gold lining? Sounds like the perfect heel for a night out of burlesque.
