From the pleated Louis Vuitton Balmoral to the Manolo Blahnik Mary-Jane, certain styles will go down in shoe lore as absolute classics, selling out the moment they hit the shelves. It's slightly surprising, however, that the biggest footwear hit of 2007 (so far) looks like it could just as likely have come from a fetish store than a high-end designer boutique. The Yves Saint Laurent 'Tribute' platform comes in various colours and two heel heights, both of which are frighteningly vertiginous. Of course the hefty platform helps make these more comfortable to wear, even if it does present a bit of a balance issue. That's still not stopped every celeb worth her $10 million paycheck giving them a go, though. Pamela Anderson is the latest in a long line, see over the jump for loads of others, and to vote as to whether it rocks or reeks...
