When we first laid eyes on these sandals, we though for a moment that the heel contained a bottle of Chanel No. 5, tucked away for emergency use only. As it turns out, it's something much cooler than that -- a working light bulb. For $2,200 these Chanel Lightbulb heels will attract attention to your shapely legs by flashing each time you take a step. Hmm, where have we seen that gimmick before?
Of course, we don't think that LA Lights ever marketed a sandal, and we pretty sure the never priced a shoe above the $2,000 mark. So really, this gimmick is slightly original because it brings a kind of Wal-Mart toy aisle sense of cheesiness to a shoe that costs as much as a used car. Actually, we really like playfulness of this design, especially if the soles are made out of real aluminum (then you know they'll last).
Before trying these on, we recommend you have good health insurance. Wearing these heels, you run this risk of twisting an ankle, being electrocuted, and walking on broken glass -- all in the name of couture.
