Petite women, listen up. We may have found your new secret weapon.
Often referred to as stripper or fetish heels, the shoes feature a sky-high stiletto heel and platform base upwards of 3 inches to give you unparalleled height. And while they once had a taboo association, they’re now being linked to a sense of empowerment and confidence, thanks to a growing number of celebrities wearing them on the red carpet.
Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian (who both stand under 5-foot-4) are both fans of styles from the brand Pleaser, which carries a range of towering silhouettes from mules to thigh-high boots. Even Helen Mirren has reached for the look over the years, while Jennifer Lopez most recently rocked a bejeweled option in her latest music video for effortless leg-lengthening effects.
While the shoes probably aren’t ideal for occasions where you’ll be standing for hours, they’re perfect for parties where you’ll only need to be on your feet to snap a few photos. Eager to try the bold heels for yourself? Shop a range of standout looks from Pleaser below — all available on Amazon and starting at just $33.
