The proud designer later took to Instagram to share a story behind the elegant heels, telling her followers: "I have wanted my brand and my shoes to be about being who you are. The heel is even based on a symbol for freedom of speech. It's been about following an audacious dream, mistakes, successes and all - because that's what is in my heart."
