I've always said there's nothing I can't do in my stilettos that other people can do in their trainers, but this might be a bit much even for me. Women in Amsterdam have been taking part in what has to be the most fashion-conscious race in the world - although probably not the safest or healthiest, it has to be said. This is the Stiletto Race, sponsored by Glamour Magazine, in which contestants race 350 metres in heels which must be at least 7cm tall and no more than 1.5 cm wide .The winner is handsomely rewarded, mind you, with a EUR 10,000 prize up for grab. Would it be worth a broken ankle or similar, though? Probably not.
