A woman left millions of viewers in awe when she uploaded a TikTok of herself dashing across a variety of harsh terrains in perilously high heels.

TikToker @feliciamonique08 first stunned viewers with her ankles and calves of steel on Wednesday when she replicated a challenge from @cityboiixx. “Bitch, who can’t run in heels?” @cityboiixx asks, then proceeds to dash across the pavement in four different pairs of pointy shoes. SpongeBob Squarepants’ “Jellyfish Jam” is playing in the background. Obviously.

@feliciamonique08 recreated the video, but instead of dashing across pavement, she ran through a field. Viewers were still dazzled; the video has earned more than 1.9 million views and 350,000 likes since @feliciamonique08 uploaded it two days ago.

But @feliciamonique08 wasn’t content to stop at four levels. Yesterday, she uploaded a second video running across even harder surfaces in Pleaser heels. She traversed concrete, asphalt, grass and dirt, and rocks and dirt at supersonic speed, never once faltering.

Viewers were spellbound. @feliciamonique08’s second challenge video is twice as popular as her first, accumulating more than 3.8 million views in less than 24 hours. 

“The strongest ankles I have EVER seen,” one viewer commented.

“If the apocalypse happens, I want you on my team,” another wrote. 

@feliciamonique08’s incredible feats of athleticism have since migrated to Twitter, where users were similarly amazed. 

Twitter user @yagirltoomuch offered some widely retweeted praise: “A greater athlete than Tom Brady.”
