The Iris Van Herpen X United Nude ‘Iris Shoe Laced’ is an either you love it or you hate it type of shoe. And that’s exactly how you Your Next Shoes readers reacted when we featured it in a photo gallery on our Facebook page just recently!
Those of you who loved it said everything from “it’s a work of art” to “it’s perfect” to “it’s the best shoe of the year”.
Those of you who hated it said that “it looks like a wicker chair”, “like it was made by a maniac in a basket weaving therapy gone awry” and “it’s the ugliest shoe I’ve ever seen in my entire life”.
The comments are clearly from opposite ends of the spectrum but you all did agree on one thing: that the $1,000.00 price tag is way too high a price to pay even for a shoe you love or especially for a shoe that you hate.
That’s why we searched for a look-for-less option to the Iris Van Herpen X United Nude shoe and — surprise, surprise — we found the perfect alternative to it at where else but Jeffrey Campbell:
