Though we've ogled photos of the backlit, futuristic displays at the just-opened United Nude flagship, this week we scoped out the spot's real selling point: the shoes. (Okay, and maybe that crazy-looking Lamborghini — see slide 17.) The architect-designed footwear collection touts some serious statement pieces, like ankle boots in rainbow swirls, wedges with open-air heels, and multifaceted, gemstonelike pumps. Though it's a destination for crazy kicks, most styles are also carried in basic black, for the color-shy New Yorkers among us. And despite a penchant for sculptural heels, you'll also find an assortment of commute-ready options, like ballet flats in a slew of colors. Click ahead to check out some of the styles in store.
