these shoes were made for walking

Well let’s hope you are able to walk in these shoes; although, these babies are such beauties that sitting at work – legs slung over the table – would be more than worth it!

But of course I am talking about the Eames Pumps by United Nude, a masterful ode to the great Charles and Ray Eames and their iconic chair.

At close to $300 they are a steal compared to yesterday’s post; AND, unlike the feasible cork map of Manhattan, I have no hopes of becoming a cobbler (although I could find a faux-Eames chair, chop off the leg and glue it to the bottom of a pair of broken heels… if I had a pair of broken heels, a faux-chair (because I’d never damage a real one!), and glue that would hold this whole mess together!).

All the more reason to wistfully lust while saving up.

I’ll tell myself it’s any good architect’s responsibility to adopt good design from head to toe!

So many thanks to Jess Tidd and google+ for letting me in on this website – who’s ‘About’ section is the most charming read:

This story begins with a broken heart. Rem’s attempt to get the girl back was made by downsizing architecture to its smallest and most vulnerable scale, that of a woman’s foot.

While most romantic notions are often foolish, what was hatched through the inspiration of romance was the ‘Möbius’ shoe. The girl was gone, but he knew the shoe had to become real.

Now add Galahad to our story. The seventh generation of the Clark’s shoe-making dynasty.

When Rem and Galahad first met, Galahad saw the Möbius shoe design, and he was instantly convinced that a new brand had to be formed.

Joined together, Rem and Galahad created United Nude.
