Senior Thesis: High Heels Round 3

Another round of exploration for my Senior Thesis.  In this round, I've looked into prosthetic leg and foot technologies to solve the problem of heel shock.  In the ball of the foot, where the most pain is felt, I've played around with Beta Gel and Neodymium magnets to levitate the shock from the foot.  So the idea is that you are literally "walking on air", but that one is still in development.  Another idea I'm really trying to push is the idea of simply removing the heel to insert a smaller one for more comfort when they become tiresome.  So many ideas will no doubt lead to a GREAT solution.  I'm excited.
