Michal Kukucka Shares Insane United Nude Heel Experiments

Former United Nude Designer Michal Kukucka recently took to his Instagram to share the process behind some of the experimental heel projects he was a part of during his time with the brand.

Both concepts appear to be inspired by the roots of a tree. Heavily interwoven and complex, the “roots” organically flow through the heel, creating a dynamic structure for the foot.

The concepts were actualised via 3D printing and used a mixture of nylon (for the wedge) and a flexible TPU (for the upper).

Below you can see the initial inspiration and sketches through to final 3D print.
