Jewelry designer Aoi Kotsuhiroi has set his sights on a new field of design and women everywhere are squealing with delight… or is that horror? The designer’s “Exotic Regrets” shoes feature lacquered horn and cherry wood with an astounding (and rather scary) 7.7″ heel.

But you won’t find these beauties on the shelves at your local mall or even the most exclusive boutique you can think of. These babies are one of a kind. And that’s probably a good thing, because we can’t imagine having a hoard of fashionistas trying to stomp down the sidewalk in these numbers. Wondering how in the world one gets these crazy high heels on? Just check out the handy gif below.
