The shoes, which we are dubbing 'fashionista football boots' are sadly not in preparation for a couture five-a-side match, but are part of the Iris Van Herpen Spring/Summer 2012 couture collection.
The footwear was created for the show in collaboration with United Nude in a design process that made use of rapid prototyping, 3D printing and carbon fibre moulding. the finished products have a soft calf nappa and haircalf upper.

Speaking of the booties, creative director of United Nude, Rem D Koolhaas said: "The collaboration with Iris has been really successful and enjoyable so far. We have made some really groundbreaking footwear."
As you can see they come in a whole variety of colours but we're assuming we will be seeing them on one of the aforementioned fashion fans before the season is out. Anyone fancy a quid on Lady Gaga showing up to the Grammys in one of the plain pairs on the right hand side?
