In the future, fashion will have to adapt to become more lightweight and portable, which is exactly the thought behind the United Nude Moon Life Shoes.

Designed by Rem Koolhaas, the otherwordly wedges were conceived at the request of performance artist Alicia Framis who wished to collect ideas of how everyday items evolve to suit the possible intergalactic life ahead of us. In this case, these high heels satisfy a likely need to reduce style's impact on space and weight -- given restrictions on board spaceships -- without sacrificing aesthetics. Manufactured by United Nude, Moon Life Shoes provide a solution, allowing big chunky carbon fiber pumps to be reduced for compact storage, and easily assembled by the wearer.
