Designer Shoes: The WOW Factor

I am always on the lookout for something unusual in a shoe, handbag, or anything that passes as fashion. This IRIS shoe by Iris Van Herpen X United Nude, available online at SoleStruck, is amazing. I love the futuristic design, avante guard shape and the metallic embellishment.

The master behind this stunning, limited edition (only one run of 100 pairs) is Dutch born designer, Iris Van Herpen. Not for the squeamish, the IRIS SHOE has a 6.5" heel and 1.75" platform, and made it's debut during London Fashion Week as part of Herpen's "Synethesia" collection.

Not surprising, Herpen has collaborated with the Father of Avante Garde fashion, the late Alexander McQueen, and is clearly influenced by McQueen's experimentation with space-age design.

FA'SHOE'NISTA! applauds the fearless, edgy, and one of a kind designs of Iris Van Herpen. Feast and enjoy!
