The Softer–And More Wearable–Future Of #Wearables #fashiontech


A milky white, stiletto-shaped mold is sitting on Amanda Parkes’s desk. It’s the beginnings of a project to restructure high heels to make the notoriously painful shoes more comfortable. “If men had to wear high heels, this would have been addressed 100 years ago,” says Parkes, the design director for the product, which comes by way of Thesis, a new shoe company founded by a former SpaceX employee. Next to that is half of a bra, a model for a new shape of memory polymer insert. When finished, instead of using an underwire, the garment will respond to body heat, molding to a woman’s shape. “It will be much more comfortable,” says Parkes.
