Pretty or Pretty Ugly? United Nude Shoes

At first glance, I thought, “Wow, these shoes are ridiculous!”  Upon further thought, however, I thought, “Now, where is my sense of adventure?”  You do have to hand it to Rem D Koolhaas, Creative Director & Founder (and Dutch Architect), these shoes are pretty creative.

While a broken heart often is the inspiration for a country western song, Rem’s broken heart inspired him to distill architecture down to its smallest and most vulnerable scale, that of a woman’s foot.

The Möbius shoe

His first shoe, the Möbius shoe, hatched from his broken heart, started it all.  The girl was gone but the shoe lived on.

Enter Galahad Clark, the seventh generation of the Clark’s shoe-making dynasty, who saw the Möbius shoe and believed a brand needed to be formed.

    Can imagine wearing the original Mobius black one. The others don’t appeal to me as shoes, but they’re pretty awesome works of sculpture!
