OMG Shoes! United Nude Shoes: Mono Jane

by Ashley on July 8, 2009

The first few times I saw the United Nude Mono Jane, I didn’t really pay it any attention; it wasn’t until the adorable Alix Rose posted them (in Ashe friendly colors, natch!) that I took notice.  And how could I not?  It seems with all the comments she garnered, that I wasn’t the only one struck by this playful shoe….

The Mono Jane has “perfect summer shoe” written all over it: vibrant colors, playful style, lightweight materials, with a cute peep-toe and contrasting mary jane strap. Not to mention, the wedge heel is perfect for trapsing through fresh grass!

It’s really the colors that did me in though… do I love the cobalt? or the magenta? perhaps the grey, the turquoise, the pink? Gah.

As an added bonus, the EVA material is considered a more eco-friendly shoe material than many other products.  Because it doesn’t use chlorine in its production, it’s decomposition is considered less toxic, and EVA is a primary material used in vegan shoes.  Stylish AND with a heart of gold!

Looks like the “shoe” aspect of my birthday list just grew a bit more… le sigh… (but who is really surprised?)

Sooo Cute! Just another thing to put on the list of wants that I can’t buy!

I’ve been loving these and especially like Doe Deere’s idea of getting two pairs and wearing one of each! But you are right… it is hard to choose. There are so many cute colors!

I love love love them! I wouldve bought a pair already but can’t decide which colour (and cant afford to buy all of them !) – first noticed them when Doe posted an outfit shot wearing two diff. coloured pastel monos… they really are adorable & summery fabulous.

Oh these are adorable, they kind make me think of fancy Crocs! Unfortunately, I think I may be too old to pull off such a cutsey pair of shoes.

You know when I post I think of you. ;)
If you buy a pair of these I will be insanely jealous but happy for you as well.
These are a win/win.. colors and good for the earth!

You know, I first saw them at Doe Deere but I’m not much into pastels so I don’t think I even thought about them until I realized they come in bright turquoise. I want a pair in turquoise, and pink, and purple! If I ever do get around to buying them I’ll probably have to settle on just the one pair though ;)

Yippee – Darling husband said they’re cute, didn’t ask the price and said I could order them! Now, should I get the yellow or gray?

@Pamela– I think we’re sharing a list! They’re definitely on my list of “Want but can’t afford”… *le pout*

@Poochie it IS hard to pick just one! But I know I’d never wear two different colors together…

@Glamspoon that sounds like a great Halloween costume to me!

@KateQ I think deciding a color is going to hold me back too… I doubt I’d ever go with 2 different colors like Doe did, but I’d be happy with one great pair…

@Natanya– I bet you can totally pull them off! A little cutesy never hurts anyone….

@Alix, I totally know you think of me when you post. We’re dirty girls like that ;)

@Michelle– like you, I saw them on DD and wasn’t crazy about the pastels… I never bothered to investigate further. So I’m glad Alix showed there were more colors! Like you, if I ever get a pair… well, I’ll probably have just one…

@Dawn, you must be the luckiest girl in the WORLD! And you deserve them, too– busting your butt with the boys AND the store… you’ll be super woman in them!

Insanely clever and fun…they look comfy, too!

Hey ladies, I stumbled across this post while googling this shoe company. I saw these tonight at century 21 in lower manhattan for 35 dollars a pair. They had them in pale pink, cobalt blue, light turquoise, grey, and black. I bought two pairs and they are very very comfy. Enjoy!

United Nude are one of my fave shoe designers & these are super cute! I love my Cup Buckle Sandals & Elastic Peep Toes this season! I have them on http://www.kindredsole.com and everybody loves them!
