Back in 2015, we wrote about Ms Dolly Singh, a 36 year old glamazon who made it her style goal to engineer the perfect foot friendly high heel. For Singh Thesis Couture was about creating the perfect stiletto for women who cannot imagine being parted from their extra inches. With a passion for both science and fashion, Singh made it happen by recruiting an aerospace engineer Hans Koenigsmann, surgeon a specialist in the reconstruction of feet/ankles Andy Goldberg and Amanda Parkes, who has a doctorate in tangible media from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and who we recently had the pleasure of meeting at MBFW Russia.
Three years in the making, Thesis shoes are the most significant advancement in the $40B industry in nearly a century. Built on a proprietary internal architecture called the Thesis LIFT(TM) (Load Balancing Interlocking Footwear Technology), the smart shoe has been designed using structural engineering and advanced material technology. An independent study conducted in by an expert in biomechanics at the University of Staffordshire, proved how the LIFT decreased weight and pressure on the balls of the feet, and improves balance while reducing fatigue.
What attracts us to this scientific wonder of a heel is the fact that Thesis stilettos brag handmade-in-Italy 4 inch heels, but when you put them on they feel like you are walking in 3 inch wedges. So if you are interested in reserving a pair of the limited edition Thesis Olympus One then do take note that only a maximum of 1,000 pairs will be produced and sold for a quite expensive price of $925 USD. Available on 4th April 2017, make sure you use bonus code “WalkitBack” when purchasing and a portion of proceeds will be donated to fund #PlannedParenthood.
