Shoes and bridges
Shoes and bridges have one thing in common: you can use the same mathematical equations to calculate the perfect construction. Before you build a bridge, you calculate the right place to place the supporting pillars. If you place them too far apart, say at the beginning and the end of the bridge, the pressure in the middle will become too much and it will break. The same principle applies to high-heeled shoes: if you place the heel at the far back of the shoe, you will get all the weight on the forefoot and end up with aching feet.
This principle was explained to Barbro Jensen by a construction engineer from Technical University of Denmark. This confirmed the conclusions Barbro had made by trial and error during 30 years of wearing high heels. Therefore, the heels on BARBRO Shoes are placed well underneath the foot to take the pressure off the ball of the foot, while providing maximum support and comfort…Who says fashion isn’t a science!
