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.
High Heel Exploration - Another round of sketching trying to incorporate prosthetic shock absorbing technology in the heel, Beta Gel for comfort, and removable heels for easy adjustments for height (colors, materials, and styles). Even a concept using neodymium magnets for levitation.
High Heels Final Concepts - After all of the ideation...it boiled down to 12 final concepts. All of which will take use of the shock-absorbing Beta Gel and the option to lower and accessory different heels by simply removing a pin-like mechanism.
