As a fundamental part of any women’s wardrobe the black leather mule can transition with you throughout each season (of your life and of the year). Artfully designed for both comfort and style, you will show up to any event looking put together, and feeling confident. The quintessential women’s shoe can add a classic and chic element to your collection, just slip-on and go!
Sustainable heels that are eco-friendly, fashion-forward and comfortable can be difficult to find. Especially with so many footwear brands out there claiming to be more sustainable than ever before, it’s easy to get tripped up (no pun intended!) on what actually makes a shoe sustainable.
In this guide, we’ll review what to look out for in your search for the perfect sustainable heels. By incorporating these guidelines into your shopping, you can prioritize your values, from environmentalism to design, in every choice you make.
Every field has its innovators, and every innovator offers a new technology or process that completely reshapes convention. At HILOS, we believe that 3D printing is the tech that will uproot the world of footwear for the better, with the potential to change the process of how we make women’s shoes altogether.
What we expect from our shoes has changed drastically throughout the years. Today, we want footwear that goes a step further, with designs that not only incorporate great style, comfort, and wearability, but also have a positive impact on our planet.
Take a step in a pair of HILOS shoes and you’ll feel just how much further you can go. Our innovative 3D design technique introduces a radically new way to make shoes. But what goes into crafting a shoe that offers the wearability and comfort of a sneaker with the look of your favorite classics like the clog, mule, or block heel?
We recently sat down with Francois Minec, the Managing Director of BASF Forward AM, to talk about the recent case study HILOS worked on with Yale's Center for Business and the Environment. The first environmental assessment of 3D printed shoes, the study examined the true impact of our technology as well as its implications for the the future of making.
This is a time of bold experimentation. It may have taken a global crisis, but in some heartening ways we are rising to the challenge of building a more sustainable form of production and consumption.
