Designers decided to make life easier for lovers of stilettos

To save women from the inconvenience of wearing stilettos for a long time, two students from Simon Fraser University's School of Interactive Arts and Technology in British Columbia set themselves this goal. They developed shoes with heels, the height of which can vary within about 10 centimeters.

Thus, women no longer have to worry about keeping an extra pair of shoes with them. In addition, a special sensor is built in under the heel of the miracle shoe, which gives a signal in a few hours, reminding that it is time to lower the height of the heel so that your legs do not get tired, ITAR-TASS writes.

“All women love stilettos, but our studies show that wearing them for more than 2 hours is tiring,” Nasim Jahangiri, one of the developers of the novelty, explained in an interview with the Vancouver newspaper. “Therefore, we offer a design that provides the ability to reduce heel height.” According to the second developer, Panthea Shahsavanti, the prototype is almost ready, but there is still work to do on the strength of the heel design. “Of course, we will demonstrate it, but so far it does not seem reasonable to wear this pair for a long time - you can damage the structure,” she explained.

Stiletto pins became fashionable in the 1950s and 1960s when new lightweight and durable materials appeared. One of the most famous masters of this period is rightfully considered Manolo Blanika, under whose skillful hands “styletto”, emphasizing the grace and femininity of those who wore them, turned into real works of art.
