MIAMI (CBS4) – Whether it’s platforms, stilettos, evening shoes or even hiking boots, fashionistas have gone head over heels for sky high shoes! Here at Bloomingdales in Aventura Mall, some Monster Shoes are measuring 7-inches and higher.
“Are people coming in, in big numbers to buy these sky high shoes?” CBS4′s Lisa Petrillo asked Eileen Alkabes of Bloomingdales.
“Absolutely. We’re seeing a lot of customers coming… of course this is Miami so they are shopping in heels and doing everything in heels.”
Petrillo, wearing “The Sharon Shoe” by Guiseppe Zanotti, explained that she is 5-feet 7 1/2 inches tall, and that the shoes she’s wearing are about 7-inches high. She then beckons her cameraman, Mitch to come stand next to her. He is 6 feet tall.
“Look Mitch, I’m towering over you,” Petrillo exclaimed.
The heels themselves have become a big part of the design from real crystals to designer logos. BLING! You name it the heel has it.
Lisa Pliner’s sky boots and shoes have a green soul. And everyone goes wild over anything animal print or anything that glistens in gold or silver… like Eugenia Young and Malory Schott at Nordstrom Aventura, who can’t put their monsters down.
“Its definitely a monster heel I love. I don’t know… I guess I just love everything about it,” said Schott.
Eugenia Young agreed. “The reason why I bought them is I wanted something that would stand out.”
And stand out she will. Now, there’s no denying Monster Shoes are not purchased for their fabulous fit such as a cushy comfortable flat.
Monster shoe wearing women stand tall on their ability to suffer through the pain… all in the name of high-heeled hotness.
Sulay Mesa should know. She’s already bought a pair. “They do hurt, But it’s worth it for the looks you get and the sex appeal. It’s worth it. ”
