United Nude Creates A Build-Your-Own Platform Shoe

In collaboration with Spanish performance artist Alicia Framis, United Nude has come up with a shoe for the "Moon Life" project, based on the premise that humans will one day live in outer-space. The carbon-fiber shoe comes flat, packed with assembly instructions and interchangeable uppers that you can switch out for a custom look. Apparently, these heels are actually meant to be worn, although they look like a broken ankle waiting to happen. If this is the future, pass us the key to a bomb shelter. We're quite happy to avoid the upcoming leaps ahead in shoe technology, and content to wear our non-assembly shoes of the past in peace. (Ecouterre)
