heeled, June 2012-
After researching the history of high heels, more specifically its origin and use throughout the ages, I decided to do a project to reflect on those findings. One of the most alarming finds was that these (heels, or its predecessor) were used to limit a woman's mobility [see http://www.randomhistory.com/1-50/036heels.html]. These things are a now fashion must and are used mostly for beautification. The heels are still pretty uncomfortable, so I've decided to make shoes out of materials that would most definitely limit mobility or even completely unwearable.
