Sky-high Crissy Loubs

Thanks for nothing Christian Louboutin; the shoe designer known for his beautiful but incredibly hard to wear shoes, has created the 'ultimate' pair of stilettos - an eight-inch number embellished with crystals and diamonds. Let's just hope he doesn't start a trend...

Louboutin told The Daily Mail, 'I could not help being inspired by English National Ballet... after all... isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven!'

The shoes are due to be auctioned off as part of a fund-raising bid to generate money for the struggling English National Ballet. It is hoped that the auction will raise up to £50,000.
