The woman behind Vanessa
“Show me a shoe that is equally appropriate for the lab and for the stage. – That will be the shoe we should name Vanessa,” said our designer Frederikke the day we were naming the new shoe collection.
And so starts the effort to find the pair of roccamores that suits one of our favorite women. Her name is Vanessa Julia Carpenter. She is a Canadian living in Denmark, working as a technology experience designer by day and running Copenhagen’s most outrageous burlesque extravaganza, Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque, by night. She just might be the embodiment of the love affair between art and technology.
Our search ended up with one of the crown jewels of this roccamore collection – the nude, lace-up stiletto that contains both delicate femininity and the strength of the Amazon warrior women. We are over the moon to be able to introduce you to Vanessa.
Roccamore’s comfortable high heel shoes are validated by scientific research to distribute the pressure and increase the forefoot comfort. M.D. Jeannette Penny from the Clinical Orthopaedic Research Hospital of Hvidovre tested roccamore heels against both regular stilettos and sneakers – and the results were astonishing!
“Millions of women could benefit if shoe manufactures used this knowledge to make simple modifications”
The pressure on a foot wearing roccamore shoes was measured to be 19-26% lower in the forefoot than a normal stiletto. The pressure in the arch was measured to be 44% higher, offering almost the same arch support than sneakers for a more balanced pressure distribution while walking.
