Say Goodbye to Awkward Shoe-Switches with These Interchangeable Heels
High heels look great in the office, but they may not feel great while commuting to work. For fashionistas who wouldn’t be caught dead pairing Pumas with a power suit, German startup Mime et Moi has designed a line of shoes with interchangeable heels, allowing wearers to change their shape, size, and height while on the go.
The shoes come in a variety of colors and materials. Each one can be paired with multiple snap-on heel options—including high, block heels, and low heels—that fit into a purse or bag. A little lever on the shoe’s sole lets wearers detach the heel and slide a new one on. Step down, and it clicks into place.
Mime et Moi’s shoes are already available for purchase in Europe, following a successful Kickstarter campaign. Now, the company has launched a follow-up fundraiser, with plans to debut their designs worldwide by winter 2017.
You can preorder a pair of Mime et Moi heels on Kickstarter, or online if you live in Europe. Kickstarter prices start at 125 € (about $137) for a package that includes a shoe bag, a pair of Mime et Moi shoes, the flat heels as well as another pair of heels, and a heel bag.
