OUR FIRST EVER COLLABORATION WITH SHAUN ROSS
UNISEX STYLES THAT FIT NO MATTER THE GENDER
United Nude collaborated with model Shaun Ross to design a heeled boot "with no particular individual in mind."
UN teamed up with Ross, who is known for his activism for gender-fluid fashion, and stylist Roman Sipe to create the shoe to break the stereotype that heels are intended for women.
This unisex project involves a shoe totally developed from the collective minds of Ross and Sipe, but with no particular individual in mind. Crafted with either black or white napa leather the western influenced boot comes in two heights, one that rests at the ankle and another with a higher shaft that reaches the upper calf. A square toe fronts the design, while a 3.25 inch (8.25 centimetre) geometric block heel lifts the shoe to give it its height.
A loop is attached on the shoe's rear and a zipper is concealed in its side. Etched into the inner corner of each heel is a chrome detailing intended to give the "illusion of a sheared edge."
The Shaun Ross x United Nude boot was unveiled in September of 2019 during New York Fashion Week. The capsule was made in a limited run of 400, with unique production numbers engraved into the metal. The boots are available in both men's and women's sizes.
