Plato's Atlantis

{Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 collection}

Alexander McQueen is known for his unconventional designs and shock tactics when it comes to fashion and these "armadillo heels" are no exception to the rule. While these are nearly impossible to attain (there are only 21 pairs in existence ranging from $3,900 to$10,000), they are beginning to show up off the runway and on celebrities. McQueen was quoted in the NY Times, "I don't think it makes sense to play it safe in these times. The world needs fantasy, not reality. We have enough reality today." One thing's for sure, you are not playing it safe while attempting to walk around in these 10-inch stiletto booties.
