I stopped by early this rainy morning to get my hands on the very last pair of CrazyLacy’s in the world!! Since they were sold out everywhere and I just couldn’t get them at regular price, I was way too happy when I found these on the one off section at the United Nude Showroom.
The prices from $25, $50, $75 and $100. A real steal for shoes that retail in the $500 range!
There are a few rules that every city girl learns in her twenties. Wash off your mascara at night, show up fashionably late at parties, arrive early at sample sales and always bring a shoe loving accomplice who will give you an honest opinion. There is nothing worst than going to a shoe sale or war zone without an (shoe loving) allies! Lucky for me, my mother in law was in town, we are the same shoe size and so off we went to scour for United Nude treasures.
The showroom was divided into samples, sizes and last seasons and one off’s.
Unbelievable discounts, holy grails and iconic shoes like the Crazy Lacy and the Tulip boot were available. Along with neons, mens, sandals, platforms and pumps – this is not a sale to be missed!

Recently, graffiti artist Niels “SHOE” Meulman launched his new book, Niels Shoe Meulman: Painter, at Art Basel Miami 2012, where the unveiling of his shoe with United Nude also took place and is due in-store end of December. Not exactly the Emerald that Pantone says is the color of 2013 but neon green shoes this hot are always welcomed in my closet. :]
On the night itself, Meulman painted graffiti on United Nude’s very own limo, and signed his latest book. Tying together art and fashion in a fresh, but serious way, this collaboration is the evidence of the multidisciplinary time we live in.
The shoe branded Calligraffiti, is laser cut out of leather and is available in black calf nappa, off white calf nappa and neon green calf nappa.
