The perfect, pointed pair of 4-inch heels can make you look stylish. But, all this at the cost of your health and comfort. Even then it barely stops women from wearing them occasionally and often daily. Wouldn't it be nice if your stilettos were made to be as comfortable as your trainers? Dolly Singh, a former transport company executive, is trying to do just that. She came up with an ultimate team comprising of a rocket scientist, an engineer, an astronaut, a fashion expert and an orthopedic surgeon to design the world's most comfortable stiletto.
Dolly Singh was a former executive of the US space transport company SpaceX. Singh said, "I loved high heels but after wearing 4in (10cm) heels for 5 years on the floors of SpaceX's 550,000-square-foot facility in Los Angeles, I began to feel the pain, which made me start my own company, Thesis Couture, which I would describe as 'Nike meets Jimmy Choo'. If we do not succeed, the next attempt will be to make stilettos that felt and functioned like wedges."

The design promises to reduce the impact of each step on a wearer's foot by up to 50%. The first 1,500 limited edition of Thesis shoes will be sold in the autumn for $925 a pair, and every shoe will be numbered and signed by a guest fashion designer.
