The Appropriately Named United Nude “Crazy Lacy” Platform Booties

February 18, 2012 • By Erika

This might be the first time we’re writing about the Dutch shoe label, United Nude, but its flair for the sensational has long been known in our network of fashion blogs. We’re glad we’re finally able to feature United Nude right here on Boots 4 You. Its shoes are distinctive, innovative, and, not to mention, amazing. It’s about time we wrote about at least one pair here on our blog.

Our chosen United Nude shoe feature debut is the following hiking-boot-inspired platform booties, which are appropriately named “Crazy Lacy.” What else would you call them? They’ve got laces up to the wazoo!

The entire front is open, covered only by those laces from the toe to the ankle. So, this is basically a vampless bootie with a shoelace-covered front (and back).

If you think the pair above is wild, wait ’til you see this royal blue variation, which is toeing clown levels of the craziness line.

For a tamer but still fashion-blogger-worthy version, United Nude also came out with an all-black color.

These booties somehow remind us of the Iris Shoe Laced booties that United Nude made in collaboration with Iris Van Herpen. They’re also a bit Jeffrey Campbell-ish but more original, and with a shock value somehow more refined.

The United Nude Crazy Lacy platform booties feature a 1/2-inch lug sole platform, a 5-inch heel, and a side zipper.
