Zaha Hadid’s “Dynamic Fluid Grid” Shoe Thing

Rubber shoes will not die. Just as Croc sales dropped off, a new breed of ugly rubbers has emerged wit the help of Lacoste and architect Zaha Hadid, who designed the Chanel Mobil Art exhibit opening in New York this week. At least I think they’re rubber — they undulate! New York mag got hold of some images of the shoe Lacoste previewed at the Frieze Art Fair in London.

“The design expression behind the collaboration with Lacoste footwear allows the evolution of dynamic fluid grids,” Hadid says in a press release. “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.” Or as one commenter put it — those are called socks.
