Taiwanese developers create replaceable heels for shoes

Scientists who invented replaceable heels are already considering ways to bring the product to market.

A group of researchers and developers led by Associate Professor Zhuang Ying-shen from Chang Hwa University received "gold" for their invention at the 39th International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva (Switzerland).

University President Dawood Shah said that over the past three years, innovative education has been promoted at the scientific institution, and interchangeable heels are just one of the developments.

Now the university is in talks with shoe manufacturers to tackle the serial production of the product. innovanews.ru

Outwardly, heels will remind someone of the Eiffel Tower, and someone will see the Taipei 101 skyscraper. There are heels similar to mahjong pieces or chess pieces.

Earlier, replaceable heels were created that were attached to the sole with screws, but in that case, the reliability of the attachment left much to be desired.

The peculiarity of the new heels is that they are fastened with locks, due to which the shoes are safe and pleasant to wear, said Cheng Chin-yi from the research group.

The developers have already filed for a patent for the invention.
