Now, I'm a dedicated wearer of the highest of heels, but even my ankles ache just looking at these. They're something of a contradiction, too: the raffia material says "beachwear" to me, but the platform sole says "don't even think about it, sucker". Ah well: all that said, I still love them - and hey, it's nice to see the world from a different angle sometimes (even if that angle is "face down on the floor once you've fallen off them"). They're £560 and you'll find them at Bergdorf Goodman.
