Transitioning from daytime casual to nighttime dress often means carting around a second pair of shoes or leaving and extra pair at the office or in the car… it’s cumbersome and inconvenient. What we need is a footwear TWIST that liberates our choices… and that’s exactly what French shoe designer Tanya Heath has done. They’ve TWISTED to create one shoe with interchangeable heel options, giving the wearer control and the freedom of choice.
They provide one pair of shoes, with multiple, snap-on, heel height options. The shoes and heels are sold separately-and the extra heels fit handily into a handbag. A huge plus for end of the night moments, when you are tired and want to slip into a more comfortable heel.
Tanya Heath literally walked a mile in their target market’s shoes. They weren’t afraid to TWIST outside the (shoe) box and de-construct the traditional product experience to come up with a more user-friendly option.
Sometimes the parts are greater than the whole. Is there something you could de-construct to come up with an innovative solution that makes life easier for your market?
