Pure Poetry We were going write an actual Haiku for this description but it's pretty early in the morning and our creativity-fueling coffee has not yet kicked in. Instead we'll just keep it simple. This Asian inspired sandal is a marvel of shoe design. Bare bones and gorgeously constructed, the United Nude HAKIU is both peaceful and fierce. 5" heel and 1 1/2" platform. Leather upper and lining, man made sole./narrow. We recommend ordering up one whole size. Size US8 insole measures 9 4/8" or 24 cm. Each whole size is 1/2" or 1cm difference. A United Nude original. Women's shoe. Imported.
