United Nudes and 3D Systems teamed up to create the newest pair of 3D-printed heels that look just like large blocks of ice. The heels of these shoes were designed to mimic blocks of chilled water to provide an aesthetic appeal and a unique piece of footwear.

This collaboration is one of many that have previously produced non-traditional and highly creative footwear designs. These shoes reach an astounding height of 21 centimeters tall. The height is given to each shoe using a square-shaped platform that allows consumers to imagine the heels are truly sculpted from large blocks of ice.

The high heel shoes were created and printed using the Cubepro desktop printer, which creates the wedges from an "PLA filament that gets combined with a stitched leather finish."
