Barb-Boasting Booties

The Iris van Herpen and United Nude 'Thorn' Collection is Sharply Venomous

— July 4, 2012 — Fashion
The Iris van Herpen and United Nude 'Thorn' collection feature some devilish, man repelling boot-heels. While these vampire-esque shoes may look ordinary from the front, the sides will leave a few chills running down your spins.

Created for Iris van Herpen's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, this will be the sixth collaboration between the designer and eccentric shoe brand. Iris van Herpen is known for her ability to transform materials into eye-catching, offbeat works. The hidden platform and sky-high arch may frighten the faint at heart, but those with Lady Gaga fashion ambitions would jump at the opportunity to rock these badass booties. The spike-adorned heels come in various finishes, ranging from matte black to patent nude.

Whether paired with a simple dress or casual denim, the Iris van Herpen and United Nude 'Thorn' collection will have heads turning and nerves tingling.
