The shape of high-heeled shoes can be fully reflected in the side curve, which is the key to the design of high-heeled shoes. What this paper focuses on is how the change of curves reflects different emotional characteristics and satisfies different psychological demands. Methods: In view of the increasing aesthetic and personalized needs of high-heeled shoes, a parameter identification of product form-design method through the SDM is built in the paper, to obtain the perceptual image value of high-heeled shoes design elements, and then by grey correlation calculation, the key factors of product image model can be identified. Results: The importance rank of the factors which reflect the common emotional intention of high-heeled shoes can be acquired. Conclusion: According to the method constructed in this paper, the improved design result meets the expected design input. The method has guiding significance for the emotional intention design of high-heeled shoes.
