Romanian Shoe Designer Mihai Albu Sets World Record For Highest Heel Sandals

The new World's Highest Heel Sandals, which are selling for up to EUR1,200, are compared to skyscrapers because of their towering heels. High heels have become fashionable, but Albu's are at least twice the height of ones that international designers have been flirting with for several years.

"Heels have an advantage because many women don't have long legs. They reposition the waist," said Albu.

Albu, a former architect, blends math, architecture and art in his creations, which are more foot sculpture than regular footwear. He uses French leather and encrusts it with jewels, feathers, mirrors, and taps into Romanian women's perennial love affair with high heels.

"I am creating a constructed chaos," he said, describing his extravagant sandals in architectural terms.

Albu said he draws inspiration from Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi and Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi.
