What we love…
- Sculptural footwear that moves beyond tradition, specializing in architectural design. At United Nude it's not hard to fall in love, these are stand out, get noticed shoes, with beautiful urban details—they truly are unlike any other shoes on the market.
- The Möbius shoe was the brands first design, and still one of the most iconic. It's made from a single strip of kevlar and features a circular, open heel. This shoe was inspired, and named after the möbius band in mathematics, which is a surface with only one side. This will make more sense when you see the shoe, you'll notice that you can follow the sleek curve all the way around without a break. Each season the Möbius is recreated in a range of colors from standard white and black to neon green and pink.
- Lisa Lo is one of our favorite styles for travel, it's a sandal flat that uses a combination of leather and contrasting chunky elastic to create a simple, comfortable, and completely chic shoe, perfect for warm weather climates. Another fantastic travel style is the Fold Low, a flat style created from folded elastic that forms an urban ankle boot.
- Innovative heel shapes and over-the-top details mean high fashion designers look to United Nude for special runway pieces. Dutch designer Iris van Herpen—who is also known for her use of innovative materials and architectural construction—teamed up with United Nude to create a range of styles to compliment her runway pieces. More expensive than the standard collection, the collaboration pieces are typically between $500-1000 a pair, a deal for shoe lovers looking to add something truly unique and cutting edge to their wardrobe.
- Using their signature materials a small collection of angular bracelets, handbags, and hats are also available. Recently the brand has also moved into furniture with the introduction of their Lo Res Chair, a style modeled after the famous Verner Panton chair from the 60's but with United Nudes own futuristic updates.
- When you walk into United Nude you might wonder if you're in a museum or a boutique. The shop, like the merchandise, is an architectural masterpiece. The walls are curved into undulating waves with individual cubbies stacked to the ceiling, each contain a single shoe. Each shelf is back lit with bright white lights, and the entire boutique is minimal and dark, focusing all the attention on the unique shoe designs.
