High Heels Exploration - Here is a compilation of the second round of exploration. After having multiple women critique my first round, I realized that they wanted a platform high heel because it offered more comfort do to the decreased slope line. They also wanted a more stable heel, so I made the area bigger and wider. The big idea of the second round that I'm trying to push is the concept of transforming your high heel into a sandal when it becomes painful.
