Six inch heels have gotten themselves a reputation that extends far beyond just being very high heels: the very mention of the phrase is almost guaranteed to raise eyebrows far and wide.

So we wondered: can the internet deliver us some six inch heels to party in during the holiday season? Six inch heels that don’t look like they really belong in the bedroom?

The answer was yes, of course!

The criteria for our hunt was simple: the heel had to be six inches high, with no platform (hidden or otherwise). And they shouldn’t look like you’d just stepped out from the boudoir (or in from your night job) by mistake!

We can’t guarantee you’d want to walk a mile in any of these, or spend a night out clubbing, but here are three of our finds.

Danubia is a new skyscraper pump made in opalized fuxia kidskin. It has a 6 inch spiked heel, is entirely handmade by Italian shoemakers and retails for €100.55 from italianheels.com.

These fabulous Fallon pumps are handmade to order, which can take several weeks. They’re £99 from BananaShoes, and available in black or red.

These six inch Domina pumps are popular listings on many reseller sites. We found these at Fantasy Footwear for $69.95 AUD (reduced from $99.95).
