Not just any $2,000 shoes, but *these* crazy spaceship awesome shoes

When I was in New York for our thanksgiving weekend, I stayed in the coolest loft in Soho. And across the street is a shoe store with shoes in glass boxes in the windows and they looked like space ships.

I thought I would come back to see these again and try them on.

So I did.

And you see how fun it was.

I mean, now you know that these aren’t your average-day, normal shoes.
This is the Nova shoe: a special-edition collaboration between United Nude’s Rem d Koolhaas and architect Zaha Hadid. You’ll recognize her style in the shoes instantly: she designs with a very liquid vision, very fluid and layered much like the Nova shoe:

I can’t tell you enough how much I’m crazy about these crazy shoes.

So instead I will let you watch the video of how these shoes are made and then you’ll be on your knees with me bowing in respect to the beauty and genius:

So the question is, Am I still thinking about buying $2,000 shoes?

Yes.
