I’m all for intrinsic designs when it comes to shoes, but I guess some things I just can’t fathom being practical. That’s why I bring you these luxurious wedges by Zaha Hadid for United Nude

Ok when I first saw this “shoe” I was confused. I had no idea it was a shoe. I was trying to figure out where my foot would go. I looked closer and then realized how intricate the design was.

Check out the description for these $2,180 wedges.

Exclusive edition
160mm Carbon fiber wedge heel
60mm Carbon fiber internal platform
Chrome vinyl upper
Leather lining and insole
Rubber sole

I searched high and low for a pic with a model wearing these, but to my surprise I couldn’t find one. I wonder if they were actually made to be worn or just admired. I can see this in my living room on a bookcase or something as art, but on my foot….no.

So I’m sure you’ve figured out my answer to the title of this post. What’s yours?


So if I happened to have a about $15,000 randomly laying around and I didn’t have any bills I’d probably buy these Giuseppe Zanotti booties for the fall.

Giuseppe Zanotti is one brand that remains consistent and fashion forward. The shoe designs are sleek and eye catching. I’m sure celebs like June Ambrose, Angela Simmons, Kelly Rowland, and Lala Anthony are already stocking their closets with these here.
