Walter Steiger may not be a common name outside of fashion circles, but with fans like Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Kendall Jenner, that is changing. Steiger has collaborated with legendary fashion designers such as Ungaro, Nina Ricci, Sonia Rykiel, Maison Chloé, Calvin Klein, Claude Montana, Oscar de la Renta, Kenzo, Azzedine Alaïa and Karl Lagerfeld.
Steiger's contributions to the world of fashion include the use of fluorescent leather, transparent plastic, the invention of the first high heel riding boot, various heel shapes, boots designed as gloves and sandals with back zippers. I have heard about Steiger only after I saw Victoria Beckham wearing boots with not usual heels. Very creative approach, I would say. Have you noticed that designers go for heel design revolution?
