United Nude

I am always on the lookout for new, interesting and exciting designers, brands and collaborations. Shoe designers with original and unique shapes and ridiculously high heels especially tickle my fancy...

I first remember hearing about United Nude shoes when Louise Roe posted a picture on Twitter of some amazing cream and gold sculpted boots she was wearing for filming hit TV show, Plain Jane.

The stylist and TV presenter has amazing taste in shoes and these slightly crazy heels are no exception!

The 'Synesthesia' ankle-breaking heels by Iris van Herpen for United Nude actually remind me of a less exaggerated version of the Alexander McQueen 'Armadillo' heels worn by Lady Gaga in the video for Bad Romance and also worn by her in real life to the airport... with a bra and some fishnet tights as only Lady Gaga could do!!

There are so many United Nude heels that I really would love to have in my shoe collection. They are all so unique and a little bit different from anything else that any other designers or brands have produced recently.

I love the angled, sculptured heel on both of these strapy sandals...

Again, the wedge heel on these intricate peeptoe shoe booties is beautiful and I love the Alaia-esq cut-out detail.

Possibly my favourite heels from the architectural label are these chunky lace up shoe boots with all-over lace detail. These boots are a product of United Nude's collaboration with Dutch Haute Couture designer Iris van Herpen and they come in a range of amazing shades from a lucious tan to grantite to an off-white shade to a very wearable grey colour.

Heel-o-holics Kim and Khloe Kardashian are both huge fans of the brand and show that the shoes look great in real life and the red carpet.

United Nude heels are extremely edgy and certainly not for the faint-hearted! They are definitely not the kind of shoes my mum would approve of but I think that makes me like them even more... better start saving the pennies now!
