Thesis designs high-performance heels

Los Angeles-based Thesis Couture will open a reservation list this fall for a limited run of high-end stilettos designed to reduce the load on the ball of the foot and make fashion footwear more comfortable and less damaging to feet. The shoes, made from ballistic-grade polymer and thermoplastic polyurethane, are being designed by a team that includes an astronaut, a fabricator who previously worked for the US military, and Andy Goldberg, OBE, an orthopedic surgeon at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London, UK.
