Hot Tub Fashion Week: Beach Shoes Combine High Heels & Flippers!

Just what you’ve always wanted. I’m talking about being truly fashionable on the walk out to your Hot Spring SpaNot for everyone, but the dedicated fashionista will jump at the chance to own these High Tide Heels.  These “shoes” combine the elegance of stiletto heels with the swimming speed of flippers.

London’s Daily Telegraph has the story:  They could provide a fashionable alternative for sun-seekers who don’t want the hassle of changing footwear every time they cool off with dip in the sea.

But don’t expect to see thousands of fashionistas ditching their flip flops and sandals in favor of High Tide Heels this year.

The shoes were created by the Belgian artist Paul Schietekat for an exhibition in 2006, and there are no plans to release them commercially.

Even so, similar designs are causing excitement among the style-conscious on shoe websites.

One commenter wrote: “Great for crazy fashionistas who don’t want to be seen without heels even at the beach.

“I think Posh Spice should adopt this style, she almost always wears heels.”

But others thought they would be too uncomfortable for practical use, with one commenter writing: “I am sorry but these have got to be the weirdest style of shoes I have ever seen.”

“I cannot begin to imagine how in the world you would walk in them without tripping over you feet.”

So what’s your reaction to the High Tide Heels? Do you vote for fashion over comfort? Care to sign a petition to get these shoes manufactured?

Just so you know: we recommend that you always wear something on your feet on the way to the hot tub. You’ll be entering the tub with clean feet and not tracking in sand, leaves & dirt.
