High Tide Heels, Part 3

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, remember this picture, which the Manolo was unable to authenticate?

Lisa Carney's High Tide Heels.

The mystery is solved!

It was me! 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! I just had a stockist of mine email me a photo of some high heeled flippers so i blogged and found this. You made my day, thanks!

The “Me” behind this charming note is the Australian designer Lisa Carney.

    I am sorry but these of got to be the weirdest style of shoes I have ever seen. I cannot begin to imagine how in the world you would walk in them without tripping over you feet. I give the models credit.




  2. Olga Says:

    Nice idea actually. Great for crazy fashionistas who don’t want to be seen without heels even at the beach. I think Posh Spice should adopt this style, she almost always wears heels, even playing baseball ;)

    Dear Sharon and Olga: I think you’re missing the joke of the designer, if I read her correctly. The high-heeled flippers were for a runway show at Sydney’s Bondi Beach with the model arriving a la Ursula Andress in “Dr. No.” In other words, she’s arriving from underwater in the ocean onto the beach. What a perfectly funny, exquisite idea for a fashion show and I’m sorry the model didn’t quite carry it off gracefully.

    I’m sorry Manolo:

    The High Tide Heels on the picture
    http://shoeblogs.com/wordpress/2007/07/02/high-tide-heels/
    are NOT from Lisa Carney!
    They are from the Belgian artist Paul Schietekat who made them in polyester and they were available at the “A8” Gallery in the Abrahamstraat in Gent (near the Gravensteen).
    All 10 pairs were sold out, but he’s busy now making some new pairs, soon available at the A8…

    Video of the stilletto flippers on the runway. Go to 02:18.

    They prove to be a bit tricky to walk in.




  8. Bryan Says:
