    High-heel fins

    No, this is not a joke:

    Would ANY of you ladies actually wear these things?
    With fronds like these, who needs anemones?

    I think I have a pair.

    And yes, it is a joke.

    It's an artist's display.

    ... and yes- they do make my legs look quite fetching in a Betty Grable sort of way.

    Oops -- I did not read the link all he way through. Still, it's a fun idea.

    Personally, I think it would be hilarious to wear some of those, just to see the reactions.

    The heels really help to lift and define your bum in a wetsuit! I think orange is the new black for this season.

    Found! High Tide Heels by Lisa Carney


    Ever since we wrote about High Tide Heels last month we've been inundated with emails from people wanting to know where they can buy the things. But for a long time it was a complete mystery. No one seemed to know where High Tide Heels came from, or, indeed, whether they even existed. At last, though, I'm pleased to say that the mystery is solved. Writing on Manolo's Shoe Blog, designer Lisa Carney says:

    "I am the designer of these high heeled flippers! I made them for my catwalk show for Mercedes Australian Fashion week 2002 at Bondi Iceberbs. This model opened the show and played the part of Ursula Andres walking (with not alot of grace) from sea. What a laugh!"

    So, there you go. And if you want to know more, Lisa's own website would probably be the best place to look.

    Not sure if I would. They may not be DIR-compliant, as the high heel could present a failure point.

    Ursula Undress? Two of the Bo Derek quadruplets? I really have no issue with that.

    They look more like "snorkling fins" than "scuba fins" to me. :P
