OMG, shoes! More specifically—Oh. Em. Gee. these shoes!
Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen collaborated with United Nude to create this hauntingly beautiful monstrosity of a heel that was unveiled on the runway in Paris this week.
Making it the duo's sixth time working together, the appropriately named "Thorn" bootie was crafted for van Herpen’s Autumn/Winter 2012 haute couture collection, Hybrid Holism.
The ferocious footwear measures in at a towering 7.4 inches and features spikes made from hand-cut semi-precious stones. It's not the first time the collabo has stomped their way into fashion headlines—anybody remember the fanged fabulousness from Spring 2012?

There's something totally Lady Gaga about these, no? What do you guys think?
