Photos: Things that make you go hmmmm... YSL's $2,600 roller skate stilettos

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) is keeping customers on their toes—and on wheels—with eye-catching roller skates and stilettos hybrids.
Past: It is not the first time Yves Saint Laurent has experienced with roller skates. In 2013, the brand launched a slightly more conventional pair with a Stars And Stripes pattern (pictured)

The Paris-based label has unveiled the shoes, which have both vertiginous heels and a set of wheels, as part of its new collection.
Yves Saint Laurent's Anya 100 Patch Pump Roller, which come at a hefty price of $2,600 according to Who What Wear, look like regular stilettos at first glance.
Options: So far, the pumps exist in four different versions. One of them is a black pump with a red leather applique (pictured)
Style: Another design consists in a chic black shoe dotted with crystals (right)

Risky: The Anya 100 Patch Pump Roller, which come at a hefty price of $2,600, look like regular stilettos at first glance, but are mounted on a set of wheels and have a brake pad
Versions: The Paris-based label previously revealed a pair of high-heeled boots also mounted on wheels (pictured in an ad)
Release: Yves Saint Laurent unveiled the shoes (pictured in an ad) as part of its new collection

Trust Tweeps (people on Twitter) to react:
Opinions: Twitter users roasted the unpractical footwear, with one of them playfully claiming that Yves Saint Laurent 'is selling $2,000 shattered ankles'
Ambitious: Another person pretended to rejoice at the invention, claiming that regular high heels were 'not challenging enough'
Getting tricky: Someone else lamented the fact that they can barely walk in regular stilettos, let alone those mounted on wheels
