Stuart Weitzman Fall Winter 2012There might be nothing sexier to look at than a dagger-like stiletto heel, but a 5 or 6 inch metal spike on your shoe is not exactly practical. Fortunately Stuart Weitzman has come up with the perfect solution with his new Dagger pump.

The designer has engineered a patent leather pump with a sexy, razor thin metal spike-heel. Unlike other killer heels this site has reviewed, the Dagger’s titanium, pin-point heel is a very manageable 4 inches high. The leather footbed should also cushion and comfort. It is pictured above in shiny, tinto quasar colored patent leather with a silver stiletto heel.
