Work / Galibelle
This women footwear brand challenged us to create a high heel that allows to interchange the heel lining.
Design & Engineering Analysis and research, design, technical design and outsole development
Galibelle is a brand that bases its slogan on “you can change it”. They challenged us to develop a technology that could replace the heel lining of a shoe in order to create a collection of high-heeled shoes with interchangeable heels.
After studying various possibilities (spring-loaded system, button, magnet, and others), we developed a system for changing the heel liner via pins.
We did the system design and project management until the first samples.
In the pictures you can see all the steps: Design, 3D Design, 3D Printing Mock-up, Injection mold and the final product, the shoe with different covered heels.
