About United Nude

Clear conception, innovation and design, at the intersection of fashion and architecture.

The broken hearted love story of Rem D. Koolhaas, nephew and namesake of architect Rem Koolhaas of OMA will go down in shoemaking history for giving birth to the company behind some of the today’s most forward-thinking footwear designs.


Established in 2003, together with Galahad Clark (a seventh generation shoemaker), each pair of United Nude is a reinterpretation of an architectural object or represents an exploration of the possibilities offered by movement, colours and materials.


Commencing with its inaugural “Möbius” shoe, the brand is guided in equal parts by pushing the boundaries of footwear design, and collaborating on limited edition releases with high profile creatives from Iris Van Herpen to Zaha Hadid and Issey Miyake.

We ended up by breaking the rules of shoes, not for the sake of breaking them, but simply by not knowing them.

Named the winner of a 2016 Wallpaper* Design Award, United Nude is positioned as a world leader in architectural footwear and accessories. The brand’s shoes are sold in over 50 countries worldwide, with concept stores in Amsterdam, Vienna, London, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Taipei and Beijing.
