Inspired by the flickering light of fire, the Flames shoes designed by Zaha Hadid for United Nude.
3D printing a shoe demands specific structural properties that can result in very solid and heavy design.
The challenge is to design a shoe that meets structural requirements for 3D printing.
Flame-like bands originate from the point of the heel, rising upwards to gently embrace the foot.
Ergonomically optimized footbed provides comfort and support.
Innovative design has embodied the shoe with the essence of fire: delicate and ephemeral, yet compelling and dynamic.
