It’s safe to say Stuart Weitzman’s Nudist heels have reached icon status in the world of shoes. But “the giving sandals,” as they’ve been dubbed, are more than a flattering red carpet favorite. When designing the Nudist style, Weitzman looked beyond the shoe industry to find materials to create an extra-sturdy heel. He found titanium to be so solid that “constructing a heel from it is like walking with an invisible wedge under your foot.”
Another surprising feature to note is the ankle strap placement. According to Weitzman’s interview with InStyle, “The ankle strap, too, serves a purpose. It’s placed high up on the ankle for ornamental purposes, but from the back, the strap dips to a location that prevents the foot from sliding forward. The designer calls it a “strap that actually works.” Intriguing, huh?
