You’ve probably seen these claw-like heels before, most likely from Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video. We doubt these lobster-claw-inspired shoes are even close to comfortable, though we have to admit they’re fun to admire from afar.

Just like the footless shoe, we’re having trouble figuring out the heel-less shoe, too. Celebrities like Uma Thurman and Victoria Beckham have been spotted wearing them, but we can’t help but wonder how they maintain any sense of balance minus a heel!

We’d love to know: What’s the point of these footless shoes from Aminaka Wilmont? Our feet ache at the sight of them! We’re all for a little suffering for the sake of fashion, but come on!

It’s difficult to tell where this woman’s feet end and her shoes begin! This pair of platforms/heels/pieces of art were created by London’s Aminaka Wilmont. It’s hard to imagine standing up straight in these unique shoes.

When most women run errands, they throw on a pair of Ugg boots or flip flops. But not Megan Fox! She donned these cut-out high heels on a recent stroll around Santa Monica. Trendy, yes. Practical? Not so much.

5 /9: Alexander McQueen Black and Red Shoes

These red and back Alexander McQueen shoes look more like a torture device than a pair of designer heels. On the bright side, at least there’s more than one heel to help any klutzy fashionistas.

You can never be too prepared, right? According to the maker of these high-heeled flippers, water safety is key. Be sure to pick up a pair for your next fashion show/pool party.

7 /9: Lady Gaga’s Grammy Shoes

Sparkles, gems and jewels, oh my! These solar-system themed heels definitely stood out as Lady Gaga strutted her stuff down the Grammy’s red carpet. We have to give her props for making a fashion statement without losing her balance!

8 /9: Purple Platforms

Stylish? Yes. Sexy? Sure. But we can guarantee that walking in these sky-high purple platforms is neither stylish nor sexy!

9 /9: Lady Gaga’s Meat Shoes

9/9 :Lady Gaga’s Meat Shoes

You knew the meat shoes had to appear somewhere on this list of the wackiest shoes, right?! We can always count on Lady Gaga to give us something to talk about, and her meat dress and shoes did just that. Check out these clunky boots, wrapped in meat and string. Nasty, but oh-so-interesting!
