Sneaker high heels are a popular but hard-to-find commodity, which is why we’ve dedicated a page to some of the coolest stiletto sportwear that the web has to offer.
**UPDATE, MARCH 2017: the shoes depicted in this post are no longer available and links have been removed and the post updated. If this changes, we will post new links.**
Today we can add to those selections with the new Salute heel from New York’s ZiGi Girl brand. This awesome 7 inch sneaker has a 2.5 inch platform, meaning an effective heel height of 4.5 inches. And that’s enough to turn even a short-arse into a 6 foot plus basketballer.
The new Salute has a canvas-covered upper and rubber soles and details, plus a lace-up sneaker-inspired front as you’d expect.
Back in 2013 you could pick up a pair of these hot shoes for $129.99 in red or black. Sadly they are no longer available.
UPDATE, August 2017: this heel is no longer available either in white or black as featured in this post. The link has been disabled and this post updated. If this sneaker heel becomes available again, we will update this post.
Wedge heel sneakers have been easy to come by lately, but genuine high heel sneakers – where the sports shoe upper balances on a stiletto below – are harder to come by. That makes me all the more happy to have found the new Soothe heel from ZiGi Girl. This quality sneaker high heel has a leather upper and was previously available for $169.99.

While we’ve covered other high heel sneakers before, quality is really what sets this shoe apart. It has a genuine leather upper on top of a sports-shoe type sole and a lace-up front. Best of all, the shoe has an eye-popping 6 1/2 inch heel! Fortunately a 2 1/4 inch platform offsets plenty of that so the shoe should be relatively comfortable as well as adding half a foot of height.
This heel was also available in black for $139.99 but is sold out in that shade too.
