The queen of futuristic design, Zaha Hadid, has collaborated with French fashion label Lacoste on a shoe design for their Spring 2009 footwear collection.

Trend Hunter recently featured a futuristic Lacoste spot celebrating their 75th anniversary that showed what Lacoste gear could look like in the year 2083. And if Lacoste wanted to have a futuristic shoe design right now, there is no one better than Zaha Hadid for the job.

Lacoste previewed the aerodynamic Spring 2009 shoe at the Frieze Art Fair in London, and NY Magazine scored official mockup of the shoes which you can see in the gallery above.

Zaha Hadid explained in a press statement, "The design expression behind the collaboration with Lacoste footwear allows the evolution of dynamic fluid grids. When wrapped around the shape of a foot, these expand and contract to negotiate and adapt to the body ergonomically. In doing so a landscape emerges, undulating and radiating as it merges seamlessly with the body."

Sounds like the perfect shoe to me!

This is Hadid’s second shoe design collaboration, following her ultra successful collaboration with Australian shoe brand Melissa. Stats for Adaptive Designer Shoes Trending: Older & Average
