It goes without saying; killer heels are murder on your feet. Sure, you could switch to flats, but what would be the fun in that? Sheena Young, founder of Nael Coce, hit upon an ingenious solution: a line of vertiginous platforms with removable liners you can wear on their own. Made from earth-friendly materials, including natural organic fibers, the shoes are lightweight, nontoxic, and hypoallergenic. The insoles even have odor-resistant and antibacterial qualities you can “recharge” under indirect sunlight.

SOLE-TO-SOLE

Young has plenty of brains to back up her stroke of brilliance. She’s a chemist who’s working on her Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, after all. She’s been where all of us have at one point or another, however. “This project all came about one New Year’s Eve when I grew tired of wearing my high heels, but didn’t want to walk barefoot,” Young says. “This is the perfect solution for all of us women who want to wear trendy, fashion-forward high-heel shoes and want the comfort of wearing flats. They provide a simple solution to painful high heel shoes.”

Available in black and gold, the Ambi pump is the first in a line of convertible heels that will include bridalwear.

Available in black and gold, the Ambi pump is the first in a line of convertible heels that will soon include bridalwear. At $70 to $75 per pair, the shoes are comparable with most mid-range footwear on the market. Factor in the two-for-one design, however, not to mention the relief from all that foot pain, and they seem like a downright bargain!
