These shoes I am looking at for a long time already, I like them very much, even fitted them, but can't decide to buy them because I think I won't wear them much often. Last weekend we passed the shop when we had diner in Amsterdam as the shop had already closed. So I could dream a while at the shopwindow.
The shoes are designed by Rem D. Koolhaas, a Dutch architect but not the famous one, he is his nephew. He is the founder of "United Nude" a shoe company and the start of it began with a broken heart. Rem's attempt to get his girl back was made by downsizing achitecture to its smallest and most vulnerable scale, that of a woman's foot, he designed the "Mobius shoe". The girl was gone but he knew that the shoe had to become real. Later he met Galahad Clark, from the famous Clark shoes family and together they founded "United Nude" They have a great webstore to watch (and buy) all the crazy shoes.
This is the Mobius shoe with which it all started.
