UNITED NUDE

Seven generations of shoe-making + a talented Dutch architect = United Nude.  The concept of the company is to meld architectural design, function, and innovation with fashion.  Each single pair of shoes is a reinterpretation of an architectural object or represents an exploration of different materials and colours. 

The first shoe created by United Nude was called “Möbius” and it was inspired by the Barcelona chair.  The uniqueness of this special sandal stood in the fact that it was characterized by a single strip that formed the sole, heel, foot-bed and upper of the shoe.

Ray and Charles Eames’ famous aluminum office chairs inspired the “Eamz” series, featuring pumps and sandals, that integrate the chair foot into the heel of the shoe, a feature that seems to suspend it in mid-air.

Since the inception of the company in 2003, United Nude has established itself as an iconic brand at the intersection between design and fashion.
