Extreme Di Marni high heels are handmade in Ukraine

Di Marni high heelsShoe designer Aina Gasse has been creating and manufacturing extreme high heels under the brand name Di Marni since the year 2000. Di Marni specialises in enormous heels of up to 6 inches, often on needle thin spike stilettos such as the shoes we have featured in this article. The Manx by Di Marni heels pictured above are a little more modest: they vary in heel height between 4.6 inches and 5.2 inches depending on size.



Di Marni‘s high heels are all handmade in Ukraine from leather, with the production time varying between 15 and 65 days. The brand describes itself as “not afraid to experiment with new styles, unusual materials and colors,” and quality of materials and workmanship is also a point of pride. They are designed to be a luxury item – the black Manx stilettos pictured above cost €375 per pair (about US$630).

Di Marni makes its heels in Ukraine and maintains an office in Russia, but the brand does not retail online itself. The biggest range of Di Marni heels online can be found at retailer Charlotte Luxury.

Check out more pictures of Di Marni heels below including the red platform pair immediately following. They are called Öxia and retail for €450. The heel height of these pumps goes up to 6 inches for larger sizes.

A Thunderbolt Moment

If you have been waiting for this season’s thunderbolt moment style-wise, prepare to be bowled over by the sparking new drop by Gianvitto Rossi. With the sizzle inherent to Italian shoe designers, his Sparkle red and rose gold sandal promises a lighting-strike flash of utter shoe envy in anyone who should pass.

Described by the designer as an edgy twist, the bolt adorns the toe and ankle straps in look-at-me red flames. A slim stiletto heel adds an elegant twist. Prepare to be envied. £635 from GianvittoRossi.com.

Are these the world’s highest platform shoes?

world's highest platform shoes

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!).

Leopard print pumps with 6 inch metal heels for only $77.99

sexy leopard print stilettosBudget fashion site Milanoo has done it again, this time with these snazzy new white leopard print shoes which retail for only $77.99.

The pumps have a very sexy six inch heel (6.3 inches to be precise), with an outer made of white leopard print cloth. These pointed toe ankle strap pumps would be great in public for a costume night or perhaps more privately as bedroom shoes. There is nothing quite like leopard print shoes for the urban bordello.

If these new metal heels bring out the big cat in you, you can pick up a pair from Milanoo for $77.99 (this is an affiliate link).

If the white doesn’t do it for you, the same heel is also available in apricot (pictured below). The Apricot Leopard Print High Heels are also $77.99 from Milanoo.

Could you walk in these 6 inch sexy metal stiletto heels?

stiletto sandalsHeel heights just continue to get higher and higher, and these 6 inch fetish sandals are no exception. Their thin metal dagger heel is designed to both tease and torment, and probably to hurt like hell for any bystanders that might accidentally get trodden on.

Come to think of it, wearing this heel for long periods might not exactly be an exercise in comfort so much either.  This six inch heel is definitely made for the woman with a high arched foot in mind, and one with excellent balance or a high pain threshold or both.

red stilettos

Like all good sexy 6 inch sandals this shoe is designed fully reveal the sexy arch of the wearer’s foot for all the world to see. On a practical level it is also engineered to securely bind the wearer’s foot — because falling from such a height is a really bad option… So the shoe is part sexuality and part sensibility, but mainly the former if we’re truly honest!

Do you think you could walk in these naughty bedroom sandals? If you feel game to take up the challenge you can pick up a pair of Red Knotted Ankle Strap Patent Leather Women’s Sexy Sandals from Milanoo for only $89.99.

The heel height is officially 5.9 inches and the upper material is made of patent leather. The heel is all metal and dangerous with that. Definitely a shoe for the woman who is happy living her life on the edge.

And it’s definitely possible to walk in them, as this video shows. Even down stairs.
