The French fashion house created a new kind of high heeled phenomenon, with roller skates attached

Every season, designers have to come up with new and exciting ideas to capture the world’s attention. Yves Saint Laurent is on a roll with their latest pair of stilettos—literally.

Its bold new shoe is part high heel and part roller skate. The stiletto skates are one of the first products out of Yves Saint Laurent under the helm of Anthony Vaccarello, who  recently took on the role as creative director. However, these heels already have history, having been featured in an ad campaign that was banned in France for being demeaning to women. These stilettos are part of the fashion house’s Fall 2017 collection and cost $2,600, if you dare to risk your balance. If being lower to the ground is more your speed, a sneaker version available for $1,195, but both items can only be purchased in store.
