Zaha does injection molded plastic.

Zaha does injection molded plastic.

This just in, passed to me by a friend: Zaha Hadid teams with Melissa to create her own footwear. Full blurb at the AIA website.

Not sure I’m digging that coral/salmon, nor how they look without feet in them, but I’ll wait for more images before making a judgment call. (Who am I kidding – they cost $350 – my judgment is irrelevant!)

Also on Inhabitat, where the color is slightly less garish, but still no images of it being worn.

On Youtube, a video of a ‘making of’ a mockup.

(To their credit, several readers on other websites have pointed out the glaring non-sustainablity of making shoes in Brasil to be sold only in London.)
