High Tide Heels
Known as High Tide Heels, they combine the elegance of stiletto heels with the swimming speed of flippers. 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 tourists ditching their flip flops and sandals in favour of High Tide Heels this year. The shoes were created by the Belgian artist Paul Schietekat for an exhibition in 2006, and there are not thought to be any plans to release them commercially.
