Talk about living the high life! Woman fearlessly tackles highline wearing heels
Meet the woman who really does live the HIGH life – as she fearlessly tackles a highline hundreds of feet in the air wearing HEELS.
Daredevil Faith Dickey, 25, carefully manoeuvres the thin line inching her way above a stunning landscape wearing the fashionable shoes.
The heart-racing spectacle took place at the Women’s Highline Meeting in the Czech Republic, which Faith organises each year.
Faith, from Austin in Texas, USA, was joined by adrenaline junkies Basia Sobanska 27 and Ela Ostrowska, 26, who wore their own accessories.
She said: “I wanted to find the humour in stereotypes – since no one had ever tried to walk a highline in high heels I decided to try it.
“Highlining is so hard already and walking in high heels isn’t easy either so combining them was very tricky.
“Being on a highline is about learning to manage fear and remaining calm while adrenaline is flowing – it can be extremely meditative.”
Professional highliner Faith has been walking wires for five years – travelling the world to compete.
She added: “Women are inspired by seeing other women doing these activities. I strive to be represented and help other women be represented.
“The Women’s Highline Meeting is an annual event bringing together women from around the world to share a weekend of highlining.
“It’s an opportunity for women to be the majority, connect with one another and support each other no matter what level of athlete they are.”
