Issey Miyake x United Nude collaborate on new shoe project

The Issey Miyake x United Nude project explores the potential future of creating original products based on the ISSEY MIYAKES’ concept “TEN SEN MEN” (point, line and surface). United Nude, with whom the project was started, regards shoes as architecture. Their manufacturing incorporates cutting-edge materials and techniques. The shoes created from this collaborative work put the people who will wear them at the forefront of the design process and are both functional and playful. 

ROCK is based on the concept of “structure”, these shoes are characterized by their dynamic, structured heels looking as if hewn from rock. They are a runway style fusing functionality based on structural dynamics and a colorful playfulness. They are available in six colors: white, black, pink, beige, yellow and green. 

WRAP is based on the concept of “wrapping,” these shoes are designed to envelop the foot with just a single sheet of leather. This basic model has an elastic band that improves the fit making the style simple and easy to wear. They are available in three colors: white, black, and silver, and in both flats and low heels.
