Celebrity Style: Stripper Heels?

This trend has only continued to grow over the years. The heels keep getting higher and the sexy platform reminds me so much of heels you see strippers wear. It’s interesting that accessories like stripper-inspired heels and fishnet stockings have become acceptable, whereas they used to be associated with exotic dancers and hookers. I’ve noticed that fashion designers get a lot of their ideas from groups that are often looked down upon: strippers, homeless people, emo kids, hippies, etc. One great example is the grunge era in the 90s. As Dolly Parton once said, “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.” It’s still true today. People spend tons of money on ripped jeans, distressed leather and holey stockings to get a certain look that is now deemed trendy and chic. I personally love high heels; I think they’re sexy. However, there are a lot of women who feel the opposite way. Not to mention your feel hurt like hell by the end of the night! What do you think? Should shoe designers take it easy on the 4+ inch platform shoes?

    The clear bottom heels are totally stripper-esq. I can see shoe designers drawing inspiration from the 70s fashion where platforms/disco were huge! Maybe instead of such a solid bottom they mixed it up to make it different.

    As my girl once told me, walk around in your heels at home that way you’ll get use to them and they won’t hurt your feet anymore.

    The platforms make it easier to walk on your feet (IF you’re walking properly.)
    I can’t stand wearing heels that do not have at least a two inch platform because there’s so much pressure of at the ball of your feet hitting the concrete. I’d rather have the support for my feet, & of course to make me look much taller than I am :)

    I’m so bittersweet with this trend. I LOVE the designs, but the height for me is impractical. Considering my daytime job requires lots of walking and standing, it’s so hard nowadays to find cute mid-height heels. :(

    I think the platforms are totally trashy. Ask any straight guy, and they aren’t going to see fashion–they’re going to see stripper heels. Just another means for girls to spend money looking foolish and superficial. Not unlike the ugg boots, which went out of “style” long before they became the wardrobe staple for college “sorostitutes”.
