What is She Wearing?

You might have seen Lady Gaga more than once in some very gravity defying footwear. Probably made more obvious through photos of her numerous falls, scabby knees as a result of her falls and a body guard holding her hands so she doesn't do herself even more damage. Who is behind these ludicrous 9 inch platforms? Japanese designer Noritaka Tatehana. According to an interview with MTV Style, he got his inspiration from a popular Japanese children's game. Kids made clogs out of empty cans. They tied strings through holes made in cans and attempted walking while holding these strings in their hands. Prices for Tatehana's platforms start from $2,000.
