Walking on Air

We were born to the idea that heels are not a pair of sneakers or slippers and never will be. Despite the pain, we crave them and wear them. But what if aesthetics and comfort could be combined? This is what Silvia Fado had in mind while creating her latest conceptual solution: Kinetic Traces. By working with an architect, a photographer and an engineer, Silvia was able to further understand the process of human motion and combine mechanical methods (not typically used in fashion) that help absorb impact. Currently, the models are art pieces showcased to highlight the possibility that comfort can be highly attained but a new commercial collection with similar aesthetics is said to be launched during this month. We’ll just have to wait and see if we could really walk on air!
