„On a mission to heel the world“

Making that perfect appearance in high heels. HÖGL and Marie-Christin Scherzer show how it’s done.

As a choreographer/dancer & physical presence and appearance coach, I wanted to bring (back) women’s self-confidence in high heels, which is why I founded Vienna’s first high heels academy, TOPinHEELS, in 2015. Being a mum with a full-time job is very demanding, both personally and professionally. When you’re a mum, your feet are under just as much strain as when you’re a dancer (all mums will agree, I’m sure ;-)). And this makes footwear choice all the more important.

For me, it’s essential that we feel healthy and happy in heels for the long run - and this is something I pass on to my customers. The moment I tried on my first pair of HÖGL shoes, I said: This is it! I’d never worn such a comfortable pair of high heels before. What’s more, they’re a feast for the eyes and are produced exclusively in Europe. What more could you ask for? Exactly - even more HÖGL shoes!
