Designers and Architects for the Feet

Helen Furber

 Helen Furber, a recent graduate of the London College of Fashion, has created the gravity-defying Icica, a wedge heel that not only keeps you on your tippy toes but also challenges outmoded concepts of luxury footwear. For Furber, however, “sustainable” doesn’t just mean swapping out traditional materials for eco-friendlier ones. Creating a better shoe means reconsidering the product’s entire manufacturing process, including end-of-life disposal.Cited.

Iris Van Herpen

If you have not yet laid your eyes on Iris Van Herpen’s designs we say go look. She designs on the level of McQueen or Rodarte with a point of view that is definitely unique. Her Autumn/Winter 2010 collection which I pretty much died over featured these  amazing  booties made in collaboration with United Nude and designer Antoine Peters. The shoes  will be available this fall in a limited number of 168 for the black and 72 for Ivory. Stunning! via dexignerCited
