An exciting new breakthrough in stiletto heels.
Thesis Couture is on a journey to set a new standard of excellence in the $40B fashion footwear market
Believing in a future empowered by intelligence and inclusion, Thesis Couture is merging California innovation and fine Italian craftsmanship to drive the industry’s most significant evolution in nearly a century. Using advanced materials and engineering, Thesis Couture is creating 4 inch stilettos that feel and function like 3 inch wedges. Their debut elegant shoe solves one of fashion’s biggest problems: the discomfort of wearing high heels. In most traditional high heels, 80% of your body weight is on your toe bones or metatarsals (in 4-inch heels). With your body not being properly designed to carry the weight on your small toe bones, Thesis Couture is transferring the weight to the larger heel bone. Thesis Lift is their innovative weight transferring design, which reduces the weight loading at the ball of the foot, making the shoes gain comfort while maintaining style.
With a team of experts that transition seamlessly between the languages of art, fashion, design, engineering and technology, Dolly Singh, CEO and Founder of Thesis Couture talked to NICHE magazine about the technology. “The heel in Thesis Lift has two characteristics which make it part of a robust overall system and structure. Unlike every other heel in history, in our shoes, the left and right heels are different parts. There is a left and a right, it’s not the same piece attached to both sides of the shoes. How each heel meets with the under-sole is specifically designed to optimize balance and support.”
