You probably thought it was lots of practice and maybe a prayer that’s been keeping you standing tall in those strappy five-inchers you love, but according to today’s New York Times it’s actually revolutionary technology that’s ensuring you don’t topple over.

Apparently, the use of a very special polymer and crafty scientific methods has allowed designers like Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, and many more to make shoes that soar above the rest. And you don’t have to understand the physics (because I certainly don’t) behind Louboutin’s 160-millimeter platforms to appreciate them – now more than ever, chic women are obsessed with ultra-high heels and moreover, extreme, and sometimes slightly scary, designs.

Luckily, we’ve got some suggestions as to (somewhat) more sensible shoes. These very sexy Pelle Moda platforms stand at almost 5″, but the stacked heel makes them easier to walk in. For a sleek party shoe, try Cole Haan’s metallic sandal – it incorporates Nike Air technology for extra comfort and ample style.
