ONLINE—Not only are there teeny tiny armadillo heels on sale at the Alexander McQueen exhibit gift shop, but you can buy them without leaving the house. Our sister site reports that they're $25 on the Met's website. [Racked National]
TWITTER—Barneys is giving away an $1,000 gift card to whoever gives them the best answer to the question “If you were a shoe, what type would you be?” (Right now the only suggestion we've got is "A peep-toe snakeskin platform heel that always wins Twitter contests," but we're working on something a little less desperate.) To win, you also have to be Twitter-friends with @BarneysNY, which at the moment has almost 60,000 followers. [The High Low; Twitter]
