Air

Comfort and fashion do not always go hand in hand. But as a shoe designer if you want to create products people actually want to wear, comfort should be taken into account.

One of the elements of a shoe that is responsible for its comfort is the heel; the lighter the heel, the more comfortable the shoe. This collection is an exploration of lightness. How can we create heels that light as air and what methods and materials can we use to create them?

As a result of this research I borrowed materials from the automotive industry, like carbon fibre, to create super lightweight heels and footwear.
