As an orthopedic surgeon, Taryn Rose treated a stream of female patients whose feet had fallen victim to pointy-toed, high-heeled footwear—while she herself could barely withstand the long working hours in her own ultra-chic shoes. So in 1998, the doctor-cum-designer created a line of luxury shoes geared to ending the foot problems of fashion-lovers. Rose has since opened boutiques in Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, San Jose, and New York to showcase her stylish array of light, breathable, flexible, and cushioned open and round-toed heels, boots, flats, sandals, and walking shoes. Specially designed to fit the unique anatomy of a woman’s foot, each pair is handcrafted in Italy using leather and Poron, a patented shock-absorbing substance also used by NASA. And while no pointy-toed stilettos are allowed, the shoes are also a testament to the doctor’s belief that fashion-conscious females can be well-heeled (well, three inches tops) while healing from a painful past of improperly fitting footwear. With the 2003 addition of a men’s collection of equally comfy casual and formal shoes, a polished, professional clientele of both sexes now takes Rose’s triple-digit prices in stride for the sake of pain-free powerwalking.
