When it comes to fashion, pushing the limits of creativity to levels of unexpectedness is not uncommon. The iconic touches of Alexander McQueen and Jeremy Scott are prime examples of limitless imagination.
Last fall during the Spring/Summer 2013 NY Fashion Week, Céline sent its models onto the catwalk in some of the most bizarre and talked about furry footwear anyone has ever seen. While they may have had a show stopping moment—good or bad depending on whom you ask—it‘s certainly not the first time a designer decided to go bold with designs.
Take a look at some of the most bizarre and eccentric designer heels we’ve seen thus far.

Never one to shy away from controversial fashion, Madonna rocked these gun heels at the New York premiere of her movie Filth and Wisdom which caused an uproar from the Mother’s Against Guns organization.
Furry Stillettos, S/S 2013 RTW Collection
Clearly one of the most memorable moments that come to mind when recounting Spring 2013 Fashion Week, Céline surprised us all when their models hit the runway in footwear critics claimed to be stolen from “Sesame Street’s” closet.
Void of Course
To be clear, there’s no limit to Lady Gaga’s sense of style—she does what she wants, whenever she wants. And during “American Idol”, Gaga showed up in male genital structured booties which even had the producers blushing.
Double Boot 2000 Leather
Gaga had us seeing doubles in ‘Born this Way’ when she showcased these Kobi Levi Boots.
Beyoncé’s entire ‘Run the World’ wardrobe was one to watch but the real showstopper were these futuristic Gareth Pugh Booties.
Bone Heels, Spring/Summer 2010 Collection
Wilma Flintstone approved, clearly.
Sky High Boots
When you think of Alexander McQueen, practical is the last thing that comes to mind. I’m certain McQueen loved aiming for height with his design before fate had its way.
Spring 2010 Collection
The inspirations behind his collections have always been out of this world with his undying ability to turn fashion into living masterpieces. In his Spring 2010 collection he wowed us with his under the sea collection that stood a mere 10 inches tall.
