We're pretty much on a perpetual hunt for more comfortable heels. Quite often style trumps comfort or vice versa, but we're firm believers that you can and should have both, which is precisely why you need to know about one new shoe designer in particular—Marion Parke. What makes Parke's shoes so special, you ask? For starters, she's a podiatric surgeon, so she clearly knows a thing or two about shoe comfort. Parke designed her inaugural luxury footwear collection for S/S 16 alongside Italian master cobblers, and the final product is crafted in the same Tuscan factory as Jimmy Choo and Isabel Marant shoes. According to her website, Parke's designs take into account the structure and function of feet and ankles, each style features a special insole sculpted to follow a foot's natural curves, and her shoes provide arch support with medical-grade material for cushioning. Add to that the extra material to support the back of your feet and ankles, and it's plain to see that her attention to detail is top-notch. These are (dare we say it) high-fashion orthopedic shoes.
