Zaha Hadid and Rem D Koolhaas announced new limited edition Haute Couture NOVA shoe. Designed by Zaha Hadid, an architect with a passion for shoes, and Rem D, the original shoe architect, agreed to collaborate on the design of a shoe with no pre-conceptions and ignore all the rules to create an entirely new form of shoe.
The result is revolutionary design of the NOVA shoe that combines innovative materialization and ergonomic considerations with the dynamism of Hadid’s architectural language conveying an inherent sense of movement.
Guided by her 30 years of experience working with complex structural principles on all scale levels, Hadid has developed an innovative cantilevered system that allows the staggering 16 cm (6.25 in) heel to appear completely unsupported.
The upper of the shoe combines metallic chromed vinyl rubber and is lined with the highest quality Italian kid nappa leathers. The hidden platform and heel are composed of fiberglass and the outsole is made of rubber. The shoe, in sizes 35 to 40, will come as numbered limited editions of 100 per color and will be available only at very select stores such as L’eclaireur in Paris and both the Zaha Hadid design and United Nude webshops.
Available in 3 colors: Black Chromed, Rose Gold Chromed, Silver Chromed
Price: 2000 USD / 1500 EURO / 1300 GBP / 7350 AED
