What It’s Like To Wear $900 High Heels Designed By A Former SpaceX Exec

Dolly Singh, a former SpaceX recruiter, has brought a group of engineers, astronauts and fashion specialists together to reinvent the high heel. Using specialized technology, the Olympus One heels by a company called Thesis Couture help balance your weight across the entire shoe so you aren’t crushing your toes when you walk. Tech reporter Avery Hartmans tested them out — here’s what it was like.

Get thee to a podiatrist! use a foot model.

Brian Williams says:

But do they come larger than US size 10?

Vivian Tran says:

$900 just 900 dollars. Yea that’s “such” a good deal. I “politely” decline. I’d rather save that $900 on my Netflix addiction.


some singh did that lol (indian) obviously not gonna work out ,
if u see football(not rugby) they are the 1st ones to use the cable type lock down for foot to the sole , check Nike magista or superfly (flyknit technology)

The shoes are way to small for her

Heewon S says:

I’m sure after this clip, she went back and said I want my $900 back.

ruzzell907 says:

Mom ! Throw those shitty heels you’ve been buying online!

eddyvideostar says:

To the rocket scientists: There is a physiological problem for many known as metatarsalgia: This is a painful condition when the fat padding of the feet are worn and one is literally walking on bone. This is not easy — and arduous with heels. No material invented could possibly make a high-heel shoe comfortable for people with or near this condition.

Chic uncovered says:

$900 and they couldn’t come up with a nice design?

Alma Lacuesta says:

Which one will you pick? Hamiltom the musical or this high heels? Mmmmmm….

OGMM Backup says:

I’d suck her toes.

karenamanda1958 says:

For $900 a pair, I better have an O with every step!

Crystal Ruiz says:

Someone get this girl shoes that fit…if they cost 900 they better be custom fit

nyaki says:

High heels hurt no matter how comfortable you make it

52 Hertz says:

Pressure on the toe? Your not supposed to walk on your to

Epic Screen name says:


Martin The Panda says:

We’ll see how big your hammer toe is when you’re 50.

eddyvideostar says:

Please, rocket scientists, if you send astronauts into space, *please* bring them back safely. We have *sent* more than one moon mission with men without a glitch, and since then, have retrogressed to the point of losing many lives just by exiting the earth’s atmosphere! Something doesn’t add up. Let women do their thing with what they do — and let the rocket science, at least, help keep us safe and — let the sexy go!

Joshua Rivers says:

Eh I’ll wear it but $900 is a little much for a shoe that has no designs or embellishments on it.

bestamerica says:

not like 2 high WTC WTC heels soles shoes…
must be banned all high WTC WTC heels soles shoes…
the shoes companys musts stop makes high WTC WTC heels soles shoes…
better use 2 flat heels soles shoes, normal shoes, plain shoes, sport shoes, sandal shoes…
important for the foot sakes and healthly…
but the bare nake nude foots are the best healthly

Hammad Shah says:

Just 900$.

這種情況 says:

She can’t walk in heels

G Benson says:

get a pair that fit, toes look like monkey knuckles

GabKoost says:

900$ “entirely justifiable” .
Lmao. Yeah right.
Most people would feel much more comfortable in sneakers and 900$ in cash in their pocket.

Ninjafairy98 says:

You say “executive” in the title, then “recruiter” in both the description and the video itself. A “recruiter” is not an “executive”. Come on.

Savannah Chism says:

fuck 900 dollars if I don’t want my feet to hurt while wearing heels I’d just put in good soles. and not wear them for long periods of time on lengths on end. I mean damn plus 900 for one of the most ugliest pairs of shoes I’ve seen in my life? screw that!!!!

louis cyfer says:

why would astronauts know anything about biomechanics and shoe design? why do you need a bunch of them? it looks like shit, ill fitting and of course it is easier to walk in when it is laced up all the way. btw, learn how to walk in heels, this was horrible.

Maxwell Henley says:

they look like they are squeezing your flesh way too much.

Percocet says:

paid promotion ALERT!!! She tested the shoes for 30 to 45 mins and states the most comfortable shoes yay right
