I saw this beauty and have to share it with you all. I am specially thinking in one of my subscribers, architect by profession and by passion.
It is not the first time that Zaha Hadid surprises us, fashionistas, with amazing designs, fluid, beautifully delicate, simple and complex at the same time. If you like her creations in architecture, you will love this shoes, because they are architectural in every way. They are totally Zaha.
They are high, not sure if I can use the term “high heeled” here because as you can see there is no heel to be seen. 6.25 inches, which equals 15.8 centimeters. Wow! That is a good lift!
When I first saw them, I was not sure about what material could that be, if they ever had the intention to make out of them comfy shoes. Probably comfort was not top of the list when doing this beauties anyways, but it looks like they are more flexible than what they look. The top is vinyl rubber coated in metallic chrome, the sole or heel (or where the heel is supposed to be) is made out of fiberglass and the interior is lined with nappa leather. So probably they are lighter and softer than what they might look.
It is an very limited edition for United Nude, only 300 pairs. 100 pairs for each of the three colours : black, rose gold and silver. They cost 2.000 USD each, but well, you are wearing a Zaha Hadid creation! I love her work very much.
And here you have the video of the making and the walking.. Hope you enjoy it!
