The NOVA shoe designed by Zaha Hadid and United Nude. £1,300
Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid created these sculptural structured shoes in collab with luxury shoe magnate Stuart Weitzman. Crafted from metallic chromed vinyl rubber, fibreglass makes up the platform and heel, while inside they are lined with kid leather. This shoe led me on a hunt for more intersections between the structure of architecture and footwear design:
