Heels – the star of the shoe

To counter the inexorable rise of the sneaker, the city shoe is digging in its heels and paying special attention to this element, as the one with which sports shoes cannot compete. The fashion heel is the surest way to stand out without completely revolutionising the entire shoe production process. Whether it is the material or the shape, each season pushes back the boundaries of what is possible.

The transparent heel is ideal for customisation: using inclusion or engraving, we can add whatever we like: feathers, drops of colour or sparkling snowflakes. These days, heels are taking on a life of their own, not dependent on the rest of the shoe. What is it to be? Sexy or arty? Sexy, we worship at the altar of the stiletto heel, pointed, arched, covered in crystals, studs, nails or ridges. Arty, we express our creativity with unlikely shapes, bases, globes, pillars… The laser techniques allow to engrave heels on demand, without having to produce a mould, which is much faster and more flexible”.  The solution to respond to this new trend for designers to produce inter-changeable heels.
