Unemployed 29 year-old fashion designer Lee Su-Hee unveiled her latest creation yesterday. The three-inch high, rhinestone-studded "HikeHeels" are, claims Lee, the first mountain-climbing pair of high heels ever invented.
Lee got the idea for the heels after climbing a nearby mountain and noticing numerous women struggling to make it up the rocky paths in traditional high heels. Lee's creation succeeds where others have failed due to the clear vinyl that completely wraps around the feet. In addition, an invisible clear plastic SeoulSoultm undergirds the entire contraption.
"Korean women will now be free to climb any mountain while not compromising their fashion beliefs." Lee added that the shoes were made entirely with korean technology in a sweatshop in Cambodia.
