13 Of Spring's Highest Heels — These Pairs Are Worth Risking A Stumble

There are everyday shoes — the ones that will outlast an evening of dancing if you need them to — and then there are shoes that we consider our "sitting shoes." You know the kind: stupefyingly beautiful, tear-inducingly breathtaking, and featuring a heel and a pitch so impossible that you've just got to relegate yourself to the nearest seat, to protect against snapped ankles.
Practical? No way. But if you've got superhero balancing skills, are used to walking on your toes, perhaps from years of ballet training, or just can't avoid the draw of a sick pair of high heels, click through. See you on the couch!
