It seems, when Iris van Herpen and United Nude collaborate, they can do no wrong. Both brands are successful and ridiculously-innovative in their own right; pairing them up doubles as a recipe for success, and results in wickedly-stunning shoes. Their latest footwear, designed for van Herpen’s runway show, is so intensely conceptual, production was limited to the four pairs that walked the runway. The creation process was tedious; the heels were created with computer-aided design, and then printed onto 3D-supported laminate. The upper material for the shoe was developed exclusively by Bart Hess, and was also used in some of van Herpen’s dresses. The shoe’s design not only reflects both brands, but also mirrors the aesthetic of van Herpen’s “Capriole” collection
