Spring-Loaded High Heels Actually Make Them Comfortable


High heels look great, but they are never comfortable. London College of Fashion graduate Silvia Fado Moreno has come up with a solution in the form of high heels with built-in hydraulic springs to cushion your every step. The Kinetic Traces collection was developed by Moreno through studying impact absorption, shoe weight, traction, and durability and then adding components to make the shoe more comfortable.

There are springs and even rubber balls worked into the designs which have lots of unique wood and leather elements. The shoes were created using both traditional leather and woodworking combined with laser cutting and 3D printing.
