A type of fetish footwear that takes the look of a high heel to the extreme. Its shape forces the wearer’s foot into an en-pointe position, much like a ballerina, but resting on long heels. The boot causes the foot to arch forward, so the wearer’s weigh rest entirely on their toes.
Walking or standing in the boots for any period of time is uncomfortable, bordering on painful. For this reason, the boots are not really meant for walking, but rather serve as the ultimate object of desire to those with a high-heel fetish. They are also sometimes used in BDSM play, especially predicament bondage.
