These shoes are show stoppers just to say the least. When United Nude teamed up with Iris Van Herpen, their 2nd shoe collaboration, for Spring/Summer 2011 collection " Crystallization" it was pure genius.
"The Spring Summer 2011 Iris van Herpen x United Nude collection will come in 2 versions of a sculptural high-heeled platform ankle bootie: the first, a complex weave of leather lace detailing; the second, elegantly draped with thin chains. The intricacy and precision of these creations require them to be 100% hand crafted in the most luxurious of leathers. The 100 limited edition pairs will retail at $995 and will be available in Black, Off White and Tan. Like previous Autumn/Winter 2010 collaboration, sold at the worlds greatest retailers such as Browns in London, l’Eclaireur in Paris and IT in Hong Kong, these shoes will be available at the world’s most exclusive retailers as well as United Nude’s own flagship stores in New York, Amsterdam, Vienna and Shanghai." united nude.
