Who said you need clout like Lady Gaga’s to have access to the craziest shoes? If you dig around the Internet a little, you’ll find that plenty of outlandish, outrageous, and original shoe styles are all within reach. You don’t need fame or tons of money — in fact, you don’t even need to search because we’ve gathered 10 of the most bizarre heels you can actually buy right here.
Check out the following sculpted, twisted, and doll-head-filled heels. Dare to wear any of these pairs?
1. Julian Hakes “Mojito” Twisted Sandals, $330.57
A twisted lime peel was the inspiration for these foot-plate-less “Mojito” sandals.
2. Jeffrey Campbell “Icy” Lucite Wedges with Ken Doll Heads, £120 (before: £210)
The version with Barbie doll heads already freaked us out. This one with Ken doll heads takes it from weird to witchcraft.
3. Zaha Hadid x United Nude “Nova” Shoes, $1,999.95
Architect Zaha Hadid and the inimitable United Nude collaborated on these high-tech, surprisingly light, limited-edition shoes.
4. Quimera Species “Lethe” Booties, $424.95 (before: $499.95)
We like to think of these skull heels as the updated version of those popular bone heels from 2010.
5. Chromat Orthogonal Platform Sandals, $414.95
6. Hades Footwear Oxford Ankle Boots, $183.05–$226.80 (before: $246.99)
7. Martinez Lierah “Dissolving” Shoes, $599.95 (before: $899.95)
These remind us of the Simone Rocha plexiglass-heel oxfords that make you look like you’re perpetually on your tippy toes.
Jeffrey Campbell calls these heels “ball heels,” but let’s be real — they’re eggs.
9. Abcense “Apron” Sandals, $484.95 (before: $569.95)
10. Jeffrey Campbell “Lynked-Tie” Booties, $204.95
Jeffrey Campbell takes fashion’s obsession with chains this season to a whole nother level.
