Oddly Unique: United Nude

In Fashion, Good Look, Oddly Unique on November 11, 2009 at 6:29 pm

I never would have considered wearing shoes made of elastic, or with heels designed after furniture, but it does exist. The thing is, this shoe brand – United Nude, has been around since 2003 (or was it 2002?), but of course I’ve never heard of it. I only learned about it when I just so happened to flounce upon an online publication called Trend Hunter. That’s when it all made perfect sense.

Brands like United Nude are for the fashionably eerie, as it incorporates architecture (the co-Founder, Rem D Koolhaas is an architect) into its design concept. Koolhaas’ partner Galahad Clark has a more classic shoe connoisseur background , and together they make some exquisite looking foot candy.

United Nude is sold in over 30 countries globally, most of which take up Europe. The duo’s latest design – Lo Res, a semi-automatic design method, entails an object being scanned into a 3-D computer model and regenerated into various solutions. Sounds like a handful, but results in a cute little shoe that looks quite fragile but in actuality, it’s quite durable and comes in five traditional (brown, black, grey, white and light blue) colourways. However, my personal favorite is the Sharpei Mid boot, named after a dog. My favorite version is the on covered in small blue arrows.

Available at United Nude.

  1. Very outstanding website.
