New Found Love.


United Nude was established in 2003 when Rem D Koolhaas  and Galahad Clark met and came together.

Koolhaas  is a Dutch architect who  trained at the Technical University of Delft in Holland and Galahad Clark is a seventh generation shoemaker from Somerset, England. Who learnt the family trade working summers on production lines for Clark's shoes in Northampton and Italy.

As a Morehead Scholar Clark studied Chinese and Anthropology at the University of North Carolina. He founded 'Students 4 Students International' a humanitarian organization project to benefit students in Africa. In 2002 he took over the Terra Plana shoe brand which he has run ever since.

Rem engineered the first Shoe of the United Nude collection by downsizing his architectural skill to its most smallest scale, that of a woman's foot, which gave birth to the 'Möbius' shoe.

When Galahad saw the Möbius shoe design, instantly he was convinced that the pair must establish a new brand; United Nude was created.

Launching in 2003 with the release of the 'Mobius' Shoe, United Nude has gained recognition throughout the years; fusing fashion and architectural design into one, creating beautiful, unique and innovative designs.

With United Nude  now stocking in proprietor stores, across 35 countries worldwide!!! These shoes are anything but shoes, they are little unique masterpieces that will leave the general public wondering; Where did she get those from???

Take a peak at just a few designs from United Nudes latest S/S 10 Collection, I can tell you right now you will be wanting a pair or multiple pairs of these babies!!!!!

The United Nude Möbius is the launch product of the United Nude brand. Since then it has become an icon in the world of design. Conceptually, the shoe is a möbius band where a single strip forms the sole, heel,foot-bed and upper.

The United Nude Mono Jane is a classic Mary Jane wedge molded from lightweight material. Its sleek design equally combines comfort and elegance. Available in nine summer colours.

The United Nude Block concept is applied to a family of products that include a ballet shoe and pump. The Block unites an abstract block-shaped heel and the rest of the shoe so it appears merged and independent at the same time.

The United Nude Frame is a return to United Nude’s architectural roots. As the most important part of any structure is its frame, the shoe's heel is lightweight carbon fiber, the upper is luxurious leather and together they seamlessly form one. The Frame is a sexy high heeled construction.

The United Nude Elastics are all made with United Nude custom designed materials. The style is dominated by bright colours and linear patterns.

The United Nude Graffiti uses the brand's name in a 3D embroidered pattern decorating the shoe as its canvas. Paint the town your favorite colour by stepping out in this platform peep toe shoe.

The United Nude Fold is about the fluent movement of a single strip. The strip folds around the foot front-to-back-to-front like a scarf.

The United Nude Lo Res is part of a new semi-automatic design method by United Nude. An object is digitally scanned into a 3D computer model and regenerated into various resolutions. The Lo Res shoe is part of an automated design revolution.
