That High heels design from Marieka Ratsma presents us with an innovation in fashion. The Biomimicry platform shoes are the result of a unique collaboration between the Dutch fashion designer and the American architect Kostika Spaho. The idea for this High heels design was inspired by the skull of a bird. The sole shape the properties of the light and highly differentiated bone structure within the skull. Such a structure requires little support material, resulting in optimal efficiency, strength and elegance. Biology (and nature at large) is the primary source of inspiration in the making and design of these high heel shoes.
