Are you addicted to high heels for the elevation they provide? (Paging Jessica Simpson!) Then you’ll love the new “skyscraper” heels by Romanian designer, Mihai Albu, so named because the towering sandals add 12 impressive inches to your height.

“Heels have an advantage because (many women) don’t have long legs,” Albu told the Associated Press. “They reposition the waist.”

The high heels are hand-crafted and cost about $1,525. One style features three wedge sandals that are stacked to make one very tall shoe. (See photo, left.)

Other styles feature chunky platforms and colorful rosettes. (More photos below.)

We love the height that these sandals would add to our frame, but we can’t help asking a silly question — how is anybody supposed to be walk in these things?

Never mind, fashion has never been about function anyways.
