So a bunch of websites are aghast at these platform boots Lady Gaga was wearing as she departed an airport, calling them “the highest heels ever” and the “world’s highest heels”:

But we all know that’s SO not true. Not only because THIS is officially the world’s highest heel but also because these platform boots are tame by Lady Gaga standards!
Are they still shocked by Lady Gaga’s fashion antics and have forgotten the kind of shoes Lady Gaga has worn in the past?
Just to show that those 8 or 9-inch platform boots are nothing, we’ve put together this mini collage of the highest heels Lady Gaga has ever worn.
She rightfully deserves her own list apart from our first one we made because Lady Gaga and her collection of sky-high ankle breakers are in a league of their own.
The pictures below are arranged chronologically but interestingly, the platforms and heels seem to get higher the further we get into Lady Gaga’s career. As of writing, the highest she’s ever worn (so high, she had her bodyguard carry her because even she couldn’t walk in them) are the last ones on this list, the Noritaka Tatehana ‘Lady Romanesque’ platform booties that measure a dizzying 18 1/2″ inches.
