I have always been a massive fan of Dutch born designer Iris Van Herpen,
but PHWOOOOAR these shoes are AAAMAZINNG!
The shoes are from her latest collection entitled “Synesthesia” and inspired by the sensations felt in one part of the body when stimulus is applied to another part, the collection featured designs that altered the inner and outer dimensions of the body’s contours, developing new volumes, shapes and silhouettes, covering and uncovering at the same time the body in architecturally constructed three-dimensional armours that create optical illusions through intricate leather strips highlighted by metallic elements.

The matching shoes that accompanied the collection are a result of a collaboration between Iris and architectural footwear brand United Nude.
These black and ivory ankle boots, will soon be available in selected shops. The boots are 100% handmade and will be released in a limited edition: there will be only 240 available worldwide, 168 in black and 72 in ivory.
