There was a blogging, facebooking and twittering going on all over Manhattan and pretty much anywhere you went to in New York City (this includes our cherished 5 boros). Roxanne and I were looking for nuggets though. There were so many events and places to be finding a diamond in the rough wasn’t exactly going to be easy. That was the case until we stumbled into United Nude. The designer shoe company set the world a blaze with it’s high end, reasonably priced shoes. At Fashion’s Night Out though, United Nude put on a display unlike any other. Imagine a wall of intricately designed geometrically complex shoes. There were tetrahedrons, octagonal shapes and much more. It was like a trip to 8th grade math class only fun.
This was a nugget among a variety of stores primarily because we’ve seen a lot of the other items at stores in some way, shape or form. The difference with United Nude is the ability to purchase an extremely sophisticated shoe at under $200. Why are the pricepoints so low? Robert Cotton, one of the head guys at United Nude stayed mum on the subject (trade secrets and other business jargon) but needless to say United Nude shoes is on the list of top fashion items to have for the season.
