Sargossa is the brainchild of designer Nanna Liv, poised to become synonymous with the stiletto revolution, for the first time fusing the worlds of lofty heels and comfort.
Stiletto Designers been men
“Stiletto designers have historically been men, who have not had to walk in them, which shows!” says Nanna. “It’s assumed that women will blindly accept the saying ‘No pain, no gain’ and I wanted to put an end to that.” Which is why, unlike most cordwainers, her design process began with studying the anatomy of feet.
A part of a uniform
Having spent many years working in the fashion industry, Nanna created Sargossa with the professional woman in mind. “I always wore stilettos for work as part of my professional appearance, but found they were very painful for my feet and I was forever changing between different pairs during the day to try and get comfortable,” says Nanna, “so I decided to design launch a stiletto brand, that would not only represent a good looking shoes but also make my feet feel fabulous.”
Armed with extensive research into the perfect position, width and even ideal platform height for keeping feet easy, her old passion for drawing was reignited and she began to create beautiful, sexy, functional stilettos. “Shoe lovers have traditionally had a choice between shoes that look good and shoes that are comfortable, but Sargossa bridges this gap without sacrificing comfort or style,” declares Nanna.
