Convertible High Heels

Footloose Adjustable High Heels

By Evan Ackerman

I’ve gone clubbing in enough pairs of high heels to be all to familiar with the pain and suffering that they can cause. I’m sure the fact that I usually ended up trying to stuff my men’s size 13 feet into a borrowed pair of women’s size 9 stilettos didn’t help, but as a woman friend of mine puts it, “it’s all about appearance, not comfort.” And sexy legs are worth the sacrifice.

Footloose, a design project by Marte de Hollander, offers the best of both worlds with adjustable high heels that turn into flats by simply twisting the heel around. It’s a great idea, and she’s already patented it, so women and men who like to dress in drag will hopefully have a chance at these sometime soon.

    not too bad in theory, but regular heels are susceptible to spontaneous implosion, I?d be weary of these.
