Part of the new United Nude Spring/Summer 2012 is the rich ‘Web Hi’ design.
Inspired by the mathematical Voronoi diagram which has been a strong influence on progressive architecture and design in recent years; for example in Scheffler + Partner architecture and Marc Newson design. United Nude is one of the first footwear brands to introduce this fascinating bio-mechanical, cellular aesthetic to footwear design.
