And now, for today’s jaw-dropping, sweat-inducing photo of the day. The above photo was taken Tuesday by National Geographic photographer Joe McNall and posted to Instagram from atop the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The photo shows a dazzling view of the downtown area, even if it pales in comparison to the anxiety of seeing McNally’s feel teetering over the edge in a pair of shoes that look comparable to something our mothers would yell at us for wearing to high school.

McNally promises there’s more to come on the shoot as well.
