TC for Shoes is a range of heel protectors designed to extend the life of high-heeled shoes. Stiletto heels are easily damaged and worn away, and it can be expensive to repair them. With prices starting at £3.90, TC for Shoes products cost less than half the price of heel repair and protect the heel for up to three times longer than traditional heel screws.
Anne-Marie Pharisier, the company's founder, came up with the concept for TC for Shoes after experiencing a recurring problem with her favourite pair of shoes. She says, “It all started with my blue shoes. They were a beautiful pair of shoes with laces and a brooch detail, and a bargain at around €20. Unfortunately, after just three days of wearing them, I noticed that the heel was damaged, so I took them to the cobbler to be repaired. I was reluctant to pay €12 for two plastic heel screws, but I was determined to wear my shoes again.”
She continues, “Just two weeks later, I made another trip to the cobbler, meaning I had spent more to repair the shoes than they originally cost to buy. When faced with the prospect of paying once again to repair the shoes, I decided to find my own solution, cutting a small pen lid to size and using some putty to secure it to the damaged heel. That was when the idea for TC for Shoes first came to me. Three and a half years and 10 prototypes later, TC for Shoes was launched on 14 April 2012.”
As well as protecting the heel from damage, the TC for Shoes range has been designed to offer a number of additional practical benefits. The first of these is comfort. TC for Shoes products are made from a thin layer of soft plastic, which provides an additional cushioned layer to the heel and offers more comfort to the wearer: as a result, stilettos can be worn for longer periods of time.
TC for Shoes also provides protection that no heel screw can equal. The heel clips have a non-slip base, which gives them improved stability, even on slippery surfaces, allowing the user to walk confidently without fear of falling. Finally, TC for Shoes provides sound insulation for heels, eliminating the tapping noise made when walking on hard surfaces.
Whereas a traditional heel screw amounts to a short-term practical solution for worn and damaged heels, TC for Shoes offers esthetical advantages to the user. Available in a range of four sizes and 11 different colours, the Talon Clip® and Talon Chic® ranges deliver a style unmatched by any traditional heel screw.
With the Talon Clip® range, the user can choose to match the product to the heel colour for discreet repair and protection, or select a contrasting colour as an accessory in order to create a variety of looks. The Talon Chic® collection is designed specifically with fashion in mind and includes intricate designs and motifs, including bows, roses, jewels and snakes.
