OFFSTAGE: Own Shania Twain’s Slip & Fall High Heels

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Remember in June when Shania Twain fell on her way up to the CMT Music Awards stage? She was on her way to present the male video of the year award, walking to the tune of her own “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” and her feet just kind of gave way. She got up and laughed it off — because she’s awesome. Later that night in a video on her website she said, “I never want to see those shoes again.” And now she actually wants you to have them. So she autographed them and has put them for sale on eBay. (The proceeds from the sale will go to Shania Kids Can, which helps underprivileged children in Canada.) There’s a catch, though. You need tiny feet and a gigantic bank account. These strappy BCBG satin 3-inch heels are only a Cinderella-ish size 6, and the bids already exceed $6,000. If you win, may you have better luck walking in them than she did.
