MADÁ CALÇADOS / MADÁ SHOES

MADÁ CALÇADOS
MADÁ CALÇADOS

The shoes are made by “MADÁ“, it was designed to include users with dissymmetric legs, meaning people who have one leg shorter than the other. Women without disabilities can make use of the same product. To enable that, the shoe was designed to enable the removal of the heel and platform, allowing women without dissymmetry to change the heels as desired. Those with dissymmetric legs have the same design options that can be adapted to their necessities leveling the legs length difference. As for comfort matters, the foot’s curvature is kept at a 3,5 cm heel height, avoiding fatigue.
