The Shoe Version of the Lightening Bolt

Miu Miu Lightening Bolt Heel Boots, $685 at Net-a-porter

I wonder if Miuccia Prada got inspiration from Jamaican runner Usain Bolt (AKA "Lightening Bolt"), who won the Men's 100 Meter race at the Olympics recently. Just look at these ferocious beauties. Not only are they a fierce 5 inches high (completely and utterly ridiculous, in my opinion), but the snakeskin trim and the jagged heel are meant to resemble lightening bolts (at least mythical ones, like Zeus's) on these sexy booties. Of course, running is out of the question with these babies, but at least you can force everyone around you to go slower as they stare in helpless awe.
