Conventional high heels require an unnatural position of the feet and cause restriction of mobility and comfort. Wearing high heels frequently can cause unhealthy changes in the foot skeleton, muscle-overstrain or circulatory disorders. COALESQUE reaches the same goal of heightening a person, by using a more ergonomic form of the heel. Instead of using two different points of weight distribution between fore- and back foot, the form of a plateau allows equal dispensation of body weight on the whole shoe. Maximum comfort is guaranteed by a 3D scan based, personalized foot bed.
COALESQUE is totally processed in digital fabrication: the heel is 3D printed and the footbed produced in CNC milling.
