High heel cushioning

Putting a spring in your step

This invention allows women to walk much more relaxed in high heels. This is made possible by a patented system inside the heel, which gently cushions the bouncing impact, which occurs during walking. The moving part of the heel is guided by an iglidur® Z plain bearing from igus®. The outstanding features of the bearings are its high-pressure resistance and elasticity.
