SHOES. It’s quite comical how this one possession can drive a woman wild, especially when compared to the lack of significance shoes have in (most) men’s lives. Well it looks like this little standard could be on its way out. I am here to introduce to you the “Cosmo”, a pair of high-tech, architecturally attractive heels, made out of carbon fiber.
Not only will women love to be seen in the “Cosmo” but men will love to watch. Their innovative design is so rare, literally, only a few hundred pairs have been produced. How much is each pair going for you ask? For $485.00 USD, these fantastically fashionable shoes can be yours. The “Cosmo” are equipped with a heel height of 11 centimeters and come in two colors, Black Calf leather and Mirror Calf leather.
Launched in 2003, United Nude is a brand that intertwines both design and fashion in its products and prides itself on clear concepts, elegance and innovation. Designers at United Nude used high-tech materials to combine both gravity and tension and turned it into a light-weight, hand molded, sexy shoe.
Architect and co-creator of the brand, Rem Koolhaus, was interviewed back in January 2009 by DazedDigital.com. The interviewer asked “Is there a material used to make the shoes for the Spring/Summer 09 collection that is particularly unusual or that you particularly like?” His response was
“Yes, the carbon fibre we are using for the first time in both the “Ultra Möbius” and the “Cosmo”. These materials are not cheap, but they are very exclusive and hand made by people that manufacture racing car parts and very expensive sport yachts. Spring/Summer 09 is the most complete collection we’ve had at United Nude so far. Right now, my team and I have just started working on Spring/Summer 2010 and, as I said, I’m working on a car as well, so we are very busy. I’m very excited about the Spring/Summer 2009 collection and, since it will be online and in stores soon, I’m looking forward to hearing what reaction it gets.”
So go check out these carbon fiber shoes for yourself before everyone else does and they are all gone! You can order them at United Nude’s website.
