We know that heel heights seem to be ever increasing, but surely there must be a limit? We thought it might have been reached back in 2010 when we covered the 9 inch high heels which we then thought were the highest high heels in the world.

They even towered above Christian Louboutin’s 8-inch, Swarovski encrusted, red-soled spiked ballet heels which were produced in 2011 as a one-off and auctioned to raise money for the cash-strapped English National Ballet.

Well now there is a new contender for the highest heel in the world, and it is commercially available.

UPDATE JANUARY 2017: Unfortunately this killer platform is no longer commercially available. Back in 2013, it retailed via Milanoo for $608.99 in black, white, silver, golden and red colours. It has a cowhide upper and an EVA sole.

If you’re after a pair of crazy high heels which are available, please consider reading these articles:

This cowhide stiletto pump has a whopping 11.8 inch high heel (29.9 cm high heel). For stationery buffs, that’s as tall as your ordinary ruler.

What is probably the world’s tallest shoe has a 6.3 inch platform (16 cm), meaning the effective rise of the heel is 5.5 inches (13.9 cm). Yup, it isn’t even as steep as a 6 inch heel (just!).
