The Y Heel is about the balance between beauty and strength, ancient architecture and modern design, what you can and cannot see.
—MARIA GANGEMI, CO-FOUNDER
THE ROMAN ARCH
The Y Heel is inspired by The Roman Arch, an engineering marvel that considered beauty just as important as strength.
With a concept in place, we turned to our longtime partners and heel experts, Pasquale and Gianni, who—without disrupting the silhouette or compromising stability—created space in the impossibly thin profile of a stiletto.
THIS IS Y
Why spend months perfecting one heel? Because we believe that beauty is just as essential as strength. Because it seemed impossible, but we find a challenge sexy. Because when it comes to style, sometimes what’s missing matters most. So Y not?
