Apparently there is a new ladies shoe which is the talk of the town and yet it isn't even in production yet.

Let us try to discover why these shoes will be a must-buy item for women next year.

It's not the price because they won't be cheap. Rumour has it that they will cost at least £75 a pair.

It's not their looks because in my humble opinion they look a bit silly. I suppose that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but for me the concave heel is not a good-looking feature.

It's surely not their name - the 'Antelope' shoe. "I'm just off to put on my Antelopes dear". Not exactly cool is it?

It's not their comfort because they are designed to be uncomfortable. How? Because...

...they are unstable. The heel is deliberately designed to move so that it causes the wearer to totter about.

So why will these shoes sell well?

The answer is that because the wearer feels unsafe, they will have to put a lot of effort into keeping their balance. Using up that effort will, so they claim, cause the wearer to drop a dress size if they wear them for a month.

So the only downside seems to be that after a few months, you may die of anorexia. That's killer heels for you.
