Could your male coworkers survive a day in heels?

Twenty Ten Talent - Could your male coworkers survive a day in heels

This is a question that crosses my mind on an almost daily basis. Of course, the answer is not a chance. I can barely survive a day in heels, as proven earlier this week when the heel on my favorite pair of stilettos snapped in two while I was trying to cross the street… The fact we can make it through the day in constricting footwear and still knock our epic to-do-lists out of the park is a living miracle that only a woman can attest to.

So, when I happened to stumble across Thesis Couture I was intrigued. Billed as the world’s first high performance stiletto, Thesis Couture is a startup that aims to shake up our work day, starting with what we put on our feet.

Using advanced materials and engineering the company is creating 4 inch stilettos that feel and function like 3 inch wedges. Instead of a metal rod, or shank, Thesis Couture build their shoes around a patented internal architecture made of high grade polymers. Created by a team of designers and engineered by NASA and MIT female scientists, the patented design redistributes load, minimizes impact shock, and reduces fatigue.

On March 22, the company will release 1,000 pairs of shoes, offered in two colors, for a 48-hour period. We’re totally loving the look book of stilettos inspired by a collection of formidable women including Maya Angelou, Michelle Obama, Misty Copeland and Serena Williams.
