I’ll keep this straight forward. This shoe is the result from a collaboration between renowned architect Zaha Hadid and Brazilian fashion label Melissa. As with any Zaha Hadid design, the sweeping conundrums are rightly apparent and I hate it. It took Hadid 2 years to come up with this? I’m aware those organic arcs hug the foot perfectly but whenever architects try to create fashion, they birth deconstructive genius like Rae Kawakubo or total disasters like this concoction.
The shoe comes in black, charcoal grey, green, yellow, silver, white and purple colorways; available in Australia May 2009 (a-hem Shane). If you live outside Aussieland, hit up the Melissa website to order online.
