We have been promised these shoes FOR EVER. A collaboration between architect, Zaha Hadid and Brazilian shoe label, Melissa. 

They were supposed to be released last year but when I spoke to a Melissa rep she said Zaha was perfecting them... over and over... and over.

They're finally available on the Melissa website in black, purple and silver - but at $365 they're a little pricey... especially if I can't try them on... and I haven't seen them at any of the Melissa stockists in Sydney.

I love the sweeping lines and irregular, asymmetrical forms (in both the shoes and Zaha's buildings...)

I love Melissa shoes - they are so comfortable and they smell like strawberries :)

I have a pair of these in green and a pair in black.

And I have these:

I think I'm going to buy these:

A collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Melissa, they're much more affordable than the Zaha's at $185. Should I?
