High Tide Heels: now scuba divers can commit crimes of fashion, too


Sometimes it’s not enough for people to commit crimes of fashion in their everyday lives. Sometimes they want to look madder than a box of frogs even when they’re under the ocean. Oh yes they do. For those people, there  are High Tide Heels – flippers with a stiletto heel on them. So, not only do you get to look like a giant duck, you get to look like a giant duck in heels. Wonderful.  I mean, I’m well known for my belief that I can do  just about anything in high heels that you can do in your flats, but, you know, sometimes you shouldn’t try to.

No one seems to know how  to actually buy these, and I guess that’s a good thing. I’m sure Britney would absolutely love them…

    These are the most ridiculous looking things I’ve ever seen. Anything to make a buck, huh?
    I’ve been scuba diving all over the world for the past nine years and I wouldn’t be caught dead in them.

    The black ones would look so fab on Britney with her black hair extensions. Too bad she wasn’t wearing them the day she stripped down to her raggedy bra and BVDs for a swimm at Bu. She might have made the cover of Vogue!!

    Yeah, Paris could wear the blue ones to match her blue contact lenses and Lindsay, the orange ones to match her hair and orange spray on tan. Hah!

    Someone could make a fortune if they went ahead and made these for real, with all the free publicity they’ve gotten already.
