We Stand Behind These Shoes

While ambling back from a delicious brunch at Clinton Street Bakery in Manhattan my mother and I stumbled upon an intriguing store, United Nude on Bond Street. The dark, pop music blasting store turned to be an outrageously amazing shoe store. The shoes were housed in lit squares that pulsed different colors, sending splashes of light over the insane shoes that seemed to defy gravity and any sort of convention.

Upon inquiry we learned that United Nude, was a collaboration between the Dutch architect, Rem D. Koolhaas, and seventh generation shoemaker Galahad Clark. This design pair explained the technical, dazzling, creative beauty that each heel held.  The colors and textures of the shoes ranged from classic black and white leather to Missoni-like fabric booties. The shoes were surprisingly reasonable and my mother picked up the Sense Hi in mocha mix for $229.

Shoes are generally one of the most important parts of an outfit and you should always be making a statement with your footwear. United Nude offers up shoes that could be classified as art sculptures and are a must for any fashion lover.
