Tanya Heath's adjustable heels
Tanya Heath is a Canadian born shoe designer who created a multi-height shoe with changeable heels. The Paris-based Canadian started with a simple idea to make heeled shoes lower when the feet were getting sore. She developed a pair of shoes with an inter changable heel system. The shoes which took three years to develop were shown at the Ethical Fashion Show in Paris this month. Now considered the world's first multi-height heel, the luxury leather shoe switches seamlessly from nine to four centimetres (3.5 to 1.5 inches).
They are available in pastel pink patent sandals, strappy dancing shoes and demure lace-ups, with either stiletto or chunky heels, high or low. The shoes start at around 250 euros (320 dollars). The shoes currently retail at the Sarenza online store, and half a dozen boutiques across five countries.
