"Hide in the heel" is a pair of leather shoes which contains a secret space in the heel. Users can remove the clear magnetic block and put small objects into the heel. This project explores the unused space in the platform heel as well as the idea of creating multiple functions in footwear design. The combination of functionality and traditional shoemaking process creates a new  wearing experience. It can be used as not only a wearable carrier but also a sculptural flower vase.
