Anyone for a 9 inch heel? British shoe retailer Parmars just announced its plans to sell a vertigo-inducing 9-inch high heel, aka the Sky Heel. Crazy!

Why on God's green earth would anyone want 9 inch heel? I can't even do 1 1/2, although I'm working my way up to 2. I'm 5' 8", I really don't need to add more.

Well, I always wanted to be taller than my 5'5" size, but not at the expense of breaking bones! No way I could walk in 9 inch heels... 3" is the most I can manage!
