Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Beyonce and several supermodels have been known to stumble in some very high heels and designers are getting more creative. The next up-and-coming stilettos include animal-inspired heels, some as high as 11 inches. German shoe designer Iris Schieferstein's shoe line includes some of the most bizarre touches, including these bovine hoof-inspired shoes with pistol-shaped heels.
