But mostly as a fashion solution for women’s shoes, the heels began to appear in the noble courts in Western Europe.

Thus there is no need the ladies to worry about side issues. The plastic is melted and injected into molds. The innovation itself has led to the feasibility of heels in a variety of forms, often unthinkable with the old method.
