Rocket Scientist Makes Stiletto

Rocket Scientist Makes Stiletto One small step for woman...

SpaceX (short for Space Exploration Technologies Corporation) is an aerospace company. While their expertise lies primarily in creating devices for space transport, they’ve taken a break from space and are now creating the perfect heel (for us Earthlings).

Heading the project is executive Dolly Singh, joined by an astronaut, an orthopedic surgeon, a fashion scientist (who knew?) and, of course, a rocket scientist. They’re inventing a shoe that redistributes pressure along the foot using high-quality plastic and polymer instead (typically, heels use a metal construction).

The heels will be available this coming autumn for a whopping $925 US dollars.

Fortunately, Singh is hoping to apply this new construct to all high heels. So, who knows, in five years you might just have a pair.
