The Melissa x Zaha Hadid collaboration has resulted in a futuristic piece of footwear that could easily make it into the next big sci-fi blockbuster. Taking on a fluid and organic form, the design is achieved through the use of plastic, which appears to be the perfect material for the famous Iraqi-British architect. A completely different breed from the United Nude collab Hadid did just last month, there is a softer, ballerina-like aesthetic to it.

Made using advanced digital modeling techniques, the Melissa x Zaha Hadid shoe looks very ergonomic. As Design Milk points out, "Resting against the foot like a second skin, the shoes aim to blur the boundary between body and object." The Brazilian footwear company and talented architect have outdone themselves this time.
