The United Nude + 3D Systems 3D-Printed Shoes Are Insane!

Shoe (and tech) addicts, commence the geek-out! These are works of art you have to see to believe

Ever since its launch in 2003 with the ground-breaking negative heel Möbius concept, United Nude has been a leader in forward-thinking shoe design. (Remember the 12-inch heels Lady Gaga wore for her Fame launch?) Now the brand has teamed up with 3D Systems, the 3D printer manufacturer credited with the invention of the technology, to create out-of-this-world, sculpturally beautiful 3D printed shoes. The collection was designed in partnership with five leaders in architecture and design as part of the #ReinventingShoes project. If you’re lucky enough to be in Milan, you can see them on display until April 19 at the Salone del Mobile for Milan Design Week.

For those not in Italy (like us), United Nude has released images on its Instagram accountsee the collection below.
