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 stiletto heels, however, as our research shows, wearing them for more than 2 hours is tiring,” one of the developers of the novelty, Nasim Jahangiri, explained in an interview with the Vancouver Sun newspaper. “Therefore, we propose a design that allows for a lower heel height.” According to the second developer - Panthea Shahsavanti - the prototype is almost ready, but there is still work to be done on the strength of the heel construction. “We, of course, will demonstrate it, but while wearing this pair for a long time does not seem reasonable - 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.
