Solange Knowles gave them their red carpet debut when she sat front row at Charlotte Ronson’s Spring 2011 fashion show, and since then Kim Kardashian and Louise Roe have been spotted wearing them.

The United Nude shoes were created ats part of a collaboration with Iris van Herpen.

The numerous thin strips of gold leather are twisted to give three-dimensional characteristics to these unique heels.

These limited edition shoes are without a doubt the statement piece of any outfit.
