Heartbroken over a failed romance, designer and architect Rem D Koolhaas—yes, nephew of the Dutch starchitect of the same name—took to his sketchbook, sketching out blueprints of what would become United Nude, a celebrated collection of avant-garde footwear. Walk a mile in the Grid Sandal, which borrows from New York’s Chrysler Building silhouette, and you’ll see why United Nude’s captivating designs strike a cord with fashion risk takers the world over.
United Nude is a line of visually stunning footwear that was inspired by a broken heart—and realized by architect Rem D Koolhaas and shoemaker Galahad Clark. Founded in 2003, this touchstone brand has collaborated with a who’s who in the worlds of haute couture, design, and street culture, including Iris Van Herpen, K-Swiss, and Calligraffiti.
Features a 4.5” ABS molded heel designed with a lattice structure, rubber outsole with a .5” molded platform, and a leather lining and sock. Upper consists of leather ankle and toe strap with nylon zip in the back.
