The Science of Your Red Sole

Did you pay attention in physics class? According to a recent CNN article Christian Louboutin says the magic behind his amazingly beautifully designed shoe is in the science of the heel.

I mean think about— how can a 6 inch heel hold all women of all sizes with breaking?

 According to Louboutin, if it is not exactly inside the center of gravity position, inside the gravity line, the weight would make you flip out behind, or the weight would make you break the heel and fall forwards. Who’d a thunk it— science meets fashion, it’s like Einstein meets eh— Anna Wintor.

There’s truly unique engineering work that goes into creating the heel of a shoe. Aspect rations, the curvature— I mean we’re no scientist, but that’s pretty amazing.
