Sneaker Stilletos: Sexy Or Creepy?

Not too long ago, I came across a pair of shoes that combined a rugged, outdoor-ready sole with a sexy stilleto shape. I still have weird sex/hiking dreams about pasty, hairy legs slinking seductively out of the sleeping bag with one of those on. Eccccckkk.

Well, here's a new set of shoes to give you some Freudian dreams: High Heel Nike Air Jordans. They may not be ready for the trail, but they're definitely ready for the court--or at least the courtside seats with the rest of the disinterested eye candy.

So sporty, so rugged, so...absolutely wrong! I'm going to have nightmares again. Tonight. This is why I cover sports and not high fashion; freaky mash-ups like this are horrifying.

On the other hand, I'd love to see these make it to production, because these would be a great NBA rookie hazing tool. Imagine getting a 7-foot big man into a pair of these and making him try for an all-out slam. Better yet--a 6 ft. 4 in. point guard. In this day and age of YouTube, we might even get to witness. 

Apparently customers didn't like these much because they're selling for more than 80 percent off the original $450 ($450!!?) price tag. Snag your pair of high-heeled Jordans today and think of a great, no-chance-of-losing bet tomorrow. 

Believe it or not, there's actually a robust market of high heels like this. Do a search of "High Heel Jordans," and not only will Google recognize it in a dropdown, it will take you to a full world of all colors and sizes of high-heeled sneakers. Like I said--fashion is scary.
