The Calligraffiti Unruly Shoe. A Collaboration Between Graffiti Artist Niels SHOE Meulman and United Nude.
United Nude and Dutch graffiti artist Niels “SHOE” Meulman, known for his Calligraffiti style where he combines the art of calligraphy and graffiti, have collaborated on this new, sexy and fun shoe.
In this new collaboration with United Nude a shoe was created in which the upper, made of laser cut leather, spells out the words “Unruly Shoe”.
With a zipper in the back, an elegant floating stiletto heel and a floating platform, this select shoe stands 13 cm (5 inches) tall and is available in black, off white and neon green.
The shoes come in sizes 35 to 41 and are available at some of the most exclusive retailers worldwide. Also available for pre-order at here for $695. USD a pair.
The United Nude x SHOE collaboration shoe launched on December 6th during Art Basel Miami, at the prestigious Wynwood Walls - the Mecca of street art. For the event, SHOE hand painted a 1984 Cadillac stretch limousine that remained parked at the heart of Wynwood during the shoe launch and cruised down the streets of Miami at night.
On the sides of the car SHOE painted his “UNUNUNUNUNUN” pattern, standing for “UNRULY”, SHOE’s Amsterdam based gallery, for SHOE’s obsession with UN-words and for “UNITED NUDE”:
On the front, back and rooftop quotes were painted from the movie Scarface, that also took place in Miami:
