Have You Seen These Armadillo Heels??

I continue to be intrigued by crazy shoes.  There are times I'll see a woman in a shoe on TV, in a magazine, or even on the street, think they're crazy, only to have other women tell me they're "cute."  Well these heels take the cake, and no one can argue that they are WAY over the top. We certainly won't be seeing women in these heels walking around the Galleria here in Houston, TX. Even IF they resemble an armadillo.

These 12 inch platform heels designed by Alexander McQueen are so over the top that models refused to wear them, citing them too dangerous to walk in.  I can't blame them.  First of all, the foot is just not shaped that way.  Second, all I can think about is that this is what a female Herman Munster should be wearing!

But then again, Lady Gaga wore these heels in her video for Bad Romance and seemed to move around fairly well in them, possibly with some trick photography.  Singer Kelis did wear them on the red carpet.  Of course the originals are far too pricey for the average woman, but LF and Jeffrey Campbell have made a similar version for the masses.

What do you think?  Would you give them a try?  Would you let your daughter wear them?  Let me know!
