Your eyes do not deceive you! This is indeed a heel, and you will, in fact, not fall flat on your face upon standing in the United Nude Eamz X Elastic Sandal ($215). United Nude, master of architecturally reinventing the heel, has created an incredibly stable (and sexy) steel heel that emerges from the center of the sole rather than the heel itself. The exotic design as well the glamorous gold heel will keep your feet happy all night long.
A Dutch architect and an English shoe designer make up the shoe design house, United Nude, which pulls inspiration from architectural objects and classic designs. The Eamz X Sandal is a reinterpretation of the Charles and Ray Eames Aluminum chair, which made its first appearance in the 1950s and was a significant functional design in the architecture world. We see the resemblance and would have never imagined a shoe design resulting from a chair design!
