"WE FOUND OURSELVES BREAKING THE RULES OF SHOES, NOT FOR THE SAKE OF BREAKING THEM, BUT SIMPLY BY NOT KNOWING THEM.”
–REM D. KOOLHAAS
Rem D. Koolhaas (nephew and namesake of architect Rem Koolhaas), together with Galahad Clark (a seventh-generation shoemaker), established UNITED NUDE in 2003.
UNITED NUDE represents innovation at the intersection of fashion and architecture.
Each product holds a strong connection to architectural design and is an exploration of the possibilities offered by movement, colors, and materials.
Commencing with its inaugural ‘Möbius’ shoe, the brand continues to push the boundaries of footwear design by collaborating on innovative limited releases with high profile designers including IRIS VAN HERPEN, ZAHA HADID, and ISSEY MIYAKE.
The brand, based in Los Angeles, is sold in over 50 countries worldwide, with concept stores in Amsterdam, Dubai, Vienna, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Taipei, Jakarta, and Beijing.
